10.22.2003

A long-in-development feature-film adaptation of the ABC TV series THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN has finally gotten off-the-ground thanks to Jim Carrey. The actor and his crew had the idea to turn blend their idea for an action movie spoof with SIX MILLION and turned to OLD SCHOOL director Todd Phillips and writer Scot Armstrong to team on the film for Dimension. Only recently did the project turn into a comedy - it was previously a big-budget action film, just the thing Carrey wants to spoof. The project has been around for some time going back as far as the mid/late-90s and a Kevin Smith draft of the script (that you can check out right here in the JoBlo script archives). Phillips and Armstrong will begin writing the script as soon as the finish their next project SCHOOL FOR SCOUNDRELS, also for Dimension. Filming on SIX MILLION is expected to get underway in fall of 2004 after Carrey wraps FUN WITH DICK AND JANE and Philliips SCOUNDRELS. Next for Carrey is a starring role in LEMONY SNICKET'S A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS, which begins filming later this month, and a starring role in ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS mind, set for release early in 2004. Phillips is currently in post-production on STARSKY AND HUTCH with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, which is set for a spring 2004 release.
