Travis Knight has signed on to direct Warner Bros.'s Six Million Dollar Man adaptation, according to Variety. The film, which is titled 'Six Billion Dollar Man' (that's 'B' as in billion, not million), already has Mark Wahlberg signed on as the titular hero.

A big-screen adaptation of Six Million Dollar Man has been in development since 1995, with a cavalcade of screenwiters (Kevin Smith, Trevor Sands, Scot Armstrong Damian Szifron), directors (Todd Phillips, Damian Szifron), and even leading men including Jim Carrey.

Knight comes to this project after the success of Paramount Pictures' Bumblebee and Laika's Kubo & The Two Strings.
