The Rock in talks to play lead in Michael Bay movie

Dec 10, 2011 - by Steve Gerweck

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is in talks to portray the lead character in the
movie ‘Pain and Gain,’ a movie with a $20 million budget produced by Michael
Bay. Bay – the director of several action movies such as the Transformers
franchise, The Rock, Pearl Harbor, Bad Boys and others – has been working on
the project for ten years. The movie is based on a Miami New Times article
from 1999 and will follow a pair of Florida bodybuilders who get caught up
in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong.
Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely – from the Captain America movie –
wrote the original script. Paramount Pictures will be the studio supporting
the movie.
