Dwayne-Johnson-on-the-set-of-Pain-and-Gain-2012-Movie-ImageMy curiosity about Michael Bay’s real life steroid infused criminal enterprises story turned summer action flick has been pretty much off the charts since I saw this image of The Rock.

Now that the trailer has hit it seems like it will be a fun little ride.

Pain & Gain is an upcoming action comedy film written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and directed by Michael Bay.

The film is based on a 1999 series of Miami New Times articles by investigative journalist Pete Collins about a couple of Florida steroid-abusing knucklehead bodybuilders who become criminals involved in an extortion ring and a kidnapping plot that goes horribly awry.

As Collins put it:

“They were local bodybuilders with a penchant for steroids, strippers, and quick cash. And they became expert in the use of a peculiar motivational tool: Torture”.

The crime pic was budgeted at $25M and is part of Bay’s two-film deal with Paramount(the other is Transformers 4also with Wahlberg.

The film is scheduled for a release date of April 26, 2013.
