The film will be Michael Bayâ€™s small budget project at $35 million, compared to the usual $200 million budget â€œTransformersâ€ film.
â€œPain &Gainâ€ is based off a true story of a small group of bodybuilders in Miami who perform various criminal activities of kidnapping, torture and eventually murder.
The cast already includes Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Ed Harris, Tony Shaloub, Anthony Mackie and Bar Paly.
Rosenberg has an impressive writing career that included films such as â€œCon Air,â€ â€œHigh Fidelity,â€ Gone in Sixty Seconds,â€ and â€œBeautiful Girls.â€
The film production will begin in Miami later this month.
