Today, a poster was released for Michael Bay’s passion project Pain & Gain. The movie is based off of a true story of two Miami bodybuilders who kidnap a person for some easy money, but end up in a ring of torture and murder. Those two body builders are going to be played by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Mark Wahlberg.
While Michael Bay gave his soul away and agreed to make Transformers 4, it gave him an opportunity to get this project green lighted. But with that, we get to see what he is capable of outside of the massive action film genre.
As you can tell by the poster, this movie should be pretty ridiculous. You have a jacked up Johnson and Wahlberg next to some dumbbells in front of an American flag. Why? Because fuck you, that’s why.
Even the tagline sounds great. I can just imagine how much these two guys will possibly “bro out” in the gym slapping each others asses like a bunch of meatheads (NOT GAY).
I think it could be a project that turns out really well for Michael Bay.
Pain & Gain will be released some time in April of 2013 and will also feature Ed Harris, Tony Shalhoub, Rob Corddry, Rebel Wilson and Bar Paly.
