‘This is f*cking awesome’ as the Macklemore song in this red band trailer for Pain & Gain indicates. Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Anthony Mackie are getting into the full, Michael Bay’s Miami treatment in the new action comedy.
The smallest film in Bay‘s recent career, Pain & Gain’s line-up also includes Rebel Wilson as an inappropriate nurse, Ken Jeong as some wealthy speaker, Israeli supermodel Bar Paly as an illegal immigrant and former beauty queen, Tony Shalhoub as the target of the kidnapping scheme, Ed Harris as a private investigator and Dutch actress Yolanthe Sneijder-Cabau joined the cast for as the girlfriend of Wahlberg’s character.
Johnson, Wahlberg, and Mackie play bodybuilding buddies from Miami that come up with a scheme to steal from a corrupt businessman (Shalhoub), who’s living the ‘dream.’
Based on an Miami New Times article by Pete Collins, a script is co-written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, with Scott Rosenberg brought on to punch it up.
Paramount will be releasing R-rated action comedy starting April 26th, 2013.
Check it out below, but note that this is very much a red band trailer, with rude words, bits of flesh and exploding things.
