There’s no gain without the pain, right? Or at least that’s what Michael Bay’s latest project “Pain and Gain” tells us. Starring alongside Mark Wahlberg, is Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson and judging by his past career in WWE—and the fact that every single one of his muscles is probably the size of our head—he’s someone we would not want to cross. Especially since one of the set photos shows him cooking a hand on a grill. Better to stay on his safe, non-Hulk-like side, no?
Just wrapped. In the pick up and headin home. Thank U crew – great work. Get rest and we’ll do it all again tonight..

But that set photo is one of the last we’ll see as The Rock just announced he wrapped filming in Miami today. “Pain and Gain” is a black comedy that follows a pair of bodybuilders who find themselves in an extortion ring and kidnapping plot that spirals way out of control.
When MTV News caught up with Michael Bay back in 2009 before the storyline was divulged, he said, “[It’s based on] a true story, and it’s very funny. It’s a dark comedy.” Quite a departure from his usual “Transformers” work, but since he hasn’t disappointed us yet, we’re having faith that the film will be highly entertaining.
