Actor Mark Wahlberg is reportedly in talks to star in a movie reboot of “The Six Million Dollar Man.”

The show ran from 1974 to 1978 and now filmmaker Peter Berg is working to bring the series to the big screen, according to The Tracking Board.

If the “Transformers: Age of Extinction” star signs on to the film, it will reunite him with his Lone Survivor director.

The movie, which centers on an astronaut whose body is rebuilt with nuclear powered limbs after an accident, has been in development since the 1990s with Jim Carrey and Leonardo DiCaprio previously attached to star.
