Inflation has turned Mark Wahlberg’s movie adaptation of The Six Million Dollar Man into The Six Billion Dollar Man.

The actor has officially signed on to reunite with his Lone Survivor director Peter Berg to revamp the hit 1970s TV series, about an astronaut whose body is rebuilt with bionic limbs after an accident.

Wahlberg will co-produce and star in the new version as Steve Austin, who uses his super-human powers to become a secret agent for the U.S. government, according to Deadline.com.

The original show, starring Lee Majors, was based on sci-fi author Martin Caidin’s 1972 book Cyborg and spawned a spin-off series, titled The Bionic Woman.

The big screen adaptation has been in development since the 1990s, with Jim Carrey and Leonardo DiCaprio previously attached to star.
