Dwayne Johnson and Mark Wahlberg Circling Michael Bay’s True-Story Dark Comedy 'Pain And Gain'

The Collider:
Having wrapped on his Transformers trilogy (although who knows if he’ll be lured back), director Michael Bay has turned his focus to the dark comedy Pain and Gain. The story is based on a 1999 Miami New Times article about two bodybuilders who got caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme that went terribly wrong. In October, Bay said of the film, “It’s a very quick shoot and quite funny.” Pain and Gain has been one of Bay’s passion projects for the past decade and carries a reported budget of only $20 million (the word “only” is used because of Bay; few other directors would get that adjective in front of their budget).
