Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg, off the back of Lone Survivor, may reunite for The Six Million Dollar Man...

Crikey, here's one that's been in development hell for a while. The path to getting a modern movie of The Six Million Dollar Man made - based on the TV series of the same - has been a troubled one, dating back to the mid-1990s. But the story of Steve Austin, being rebuilt with posh technology after a plane crash, might finally be moving forward again.

Universal Pictures has been developing the film, and The Tracking Board now reports that Mark Wahlberg is being linked with the project. Wahlberg, currently topping the US box office with Transformers: Age Of Extinction, is being targeted to take the title role.

Peter Berg is currently on board as a producer, and may well direct the movie. That'd reunite him with Wahlberg, following their collaboration on Lone Survivor. We'll keep you posted...
