As with the 1973-78 ABC series that starred Lee Majors, the film follows Col. Steve Austin, a military officer (and NASA Astronaut on the original show). Injured in a catastrophic accident, Austin is rebuilt with cybernetic parts by a top-secret government program, giving him super speed and strength along with other built-in abilities, with which he fights bad guys.

Based like its television predecessor on the novel Cyborg by Martin Caidin, The Six Billion Dollar Man will be written and directed by Damián Szifron (Wild Tales). TWC-Dimension EVP Production and Creative Affairs Matthew Signer, and SVP Production and Development Keith Levine are overseeing. Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Bob Weinstein will produce, with shooting scheduled to start in September.
