Zwigoff, Clowes to Assemble $40,000 Man

They can rebuild him. They have the technology.

The creative duo responsible for Ghost World and Art School Confidential has found its next project.

Variety reports that director Terry Zwigoff and writer Daniel Clowes, who received an Oscar nomination for their work on Ghost World, have signed on for New Line’s The $40,000 Man. The script, originally written by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, is summarized as follows:

Story centers on a legendary astronaut and true American hero who finds himself horribly injured in a car accident and rebuilt by the government to be a bionic man, but on a budget of $40,000 — which makes him not all that bionic.

It sounds like the kind of thing that would have made a great SNL sketch — in 1978 — but who knows? Zwigoff and Clowes have earned our trust. Maybe Lee Majors will make a $40,000 cameo.
