Travis Knight is Directing ‘Six Billion Dollar Man’ Starring Mark Wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg

Bumblebee director Travis Knight is going to direct Mark Wahlberg-starring Six Billion Dollar Man.

The long-waiting project, which began production at The Weinstein Co. before being picked up by Warner Bros. in 2017, lost director and co-writer Damian Szifron nearly a year ago. Mel Gibson was at the one-time candidate of the director’s chair.

Wahlberg is set to star as Col. Steve Austin, a crashed pilot who is saved by an operation that makes him part machine, in the long-awaited big-screen adaptation of the classic 1970s sci-fi TV show. Bill Dubuque is penning the screenplay.

Knight directed the recent live-action feature debut with Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, which made $466 million at the global box office. He is the founder of the stop-motion animation studio Laika, which is behind the movies like CoralineKubo and the Two Strings and the newly release Missing Link.
