Michael Bay’s Pain & Gain was set to be his follow up project to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen but ended up getting pushed back till after he finished the 3rd film in the franchise (with a 4th scheduled for a June 14, 2014 release date). Pain & Gain, set to be released on April 26, 2013, tells the true story of a gang of Miami bodybuilders who get involved with extortion, kidnapping, and murder. With a budget of $20 million, Bay’s film will use star power (Dwayne Johnson, Mark Whalberg and Anthony Mackie) to combat the lack of Decepticons and CGI imagery. Paramount has also released a full poster which you can see after the jump.
