Believe it or not, Michael Bay has a passion project that doesn’t involve massive explosions, sci-fi elements, or big robots. Pain & Gain is based on actual events and will follow two muscle-brained body builders (played by Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson) who have come to the realization that a life of crime, kidnapping, and drug dealing isn’t as easy as it sounds. The film also stars Anthony Mackie, Ed Harris, Rob Corddry, Ken Jeong, Tony Shalhoub, and Bar Paly. Now Paramount has scheduled April 26, 2013, to be the release date for the film.
You can also check out the full poster here below.
We previously saw a teaser photo of Johnson cooking what looks like to be a severed limb. But promotion for the film went cold. Now that we’ve got a release date and a teaser poster, we could be seeing more promotions maybe even a teaser trailer.
Deadline was the first to report on the new schedule.
