A couple of days ago we posted a first look image of Mark Wahlberg all buffed out for his role in Michael Bay's dark comedy Pain and Gain. Today we give you a first look image at Dwayne Johnson in the film with Whalberg. It was also recently announced that Communities Ken Jeong has joined the cast in a role yet to be revealed.
The film is based on a true story, and it follows a pair of Florida bodybuilders who get caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme involving a wealthy businessman that goes terribly wrong.
The script was written by Captain America scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. It also stars Rob Corddry, Rebel Wilson, Tony Shaloub, Anthony Mackie, Ed Harris, and Bar Paly. I have no doubt this is going to turn out to be an interesting movie. I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of awesomely ridiculous stuff that Bay throws into it.
