INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
Michael Bay’s upcoming dark comedy Pain & Gain might seem like a bit of a departure for the director who’s been making bank on the Transformers franchise since 2007. However, the new film, based on a true story about a group of Florida bodybuilders that kidnap a businessman only to be hunted down by an investigator the victim hires, seems as if it echoes Bay’s earlier works like Bad Boys.
Paramount Pictures has debuted the film’s first poster, which could easily be an ad for General Nutrition Centers. While they’re not featured on the poster, Pain & Gain stars Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Ed Harris, Anthony Mackie, Rob Corddry and Ken Jeong. It opens April 26, 2013.
