Michael Bay Has A "Passion Project," And It Isn't A Hot Chick In Front Of A Wall Of Explosions

Pain & Gain is, as pointed out on the poster, a true story of two Miami bodybuilders. I find this interesting, because I'm guessing that Bay was sitting in his mansion, surrounded by life-sized Transformers, wracking his brain about how he could include an airplane exploding. Hell, even a store front exploding onto a sidewalk full of people. "Are you sure they didn't have a workout bench that was actually a robot from another planet?" Bay would ask screenwriters Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (both wrote Captain America: The First Avenger). "Sorry, Mr. Bay," they would reply. Bay would then sadly shuffle into his back yard and throw Black Cat firecrackers at his menagerie of innocent bystanders.

Pain & Gain also stars Anthony Mackie, Ed Harris, Tony Shalhoub, Rob Corddry, Rebel Wilson, Bar Paly, and a severed hand.
