PAIN & GAIN is an upcoming action comedy film written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and directed by Michael Bay. It 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.”
Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson (both playing the roles of incompetently murderous bodybuilders) and Ed Harris have starring roles in the film. Harris plays private detective Ed Du Bois who cracks the case after the Miami Police Department fails to do so.
