Hollywood funnyman Jim Carrey has signed up to star in a big screen version of 1970s TV hit THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN.

Carrey will play bionic man Steve Austin, the role originally made famous by Lee Majors, in the new movie - which will be directed by Starsky And Hutch's Todd Phillips and produced by Hollywood heavyweights UNIVERSAL and DIMENSION FILMS.

Dimension boss BOB WEINSTEIN says, "The teaming of Jim and Todd is the perfect creative combination to launch the franchise."
