Stephen McFeely

Paramount and director Michael Bay seem bound and determined to turn Bay’s next big picture, true-life tale Pain and Gain, into a real piece of work (read – not a film that gets its big gags from racist robots). First, Bay secured a story that’s seemingly ready-made for the cinematic treatment – a dark, funny, bizarre, and captivating story about loser bodybuilders in Miami who get mixed up violent crime (violent crime that, despite their bulk, they are truly not cut out for). Then, he filled out his cast with a mix of recognizable talent (Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson), spiced it up with some solid hitters (Ed Harris, Tony Shaloub, and Anthony Mackie), and then (for once in his directorial career), cast a model (Bar Paly) in a role suitable for a model. What next, Bay? According to THR, screenwriter Scott Rosenberg has been brought in “for polish and punch-up duties” on the film’s script. First penned by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (all three The Chronicles of Narnia films, Captain America: The First Avenger), Rosenberg will likely add bigger action and and the sort of humor Bay goes for (fun fact, Rosenberg wrote the “Animal Crackers” scene in Armageddon).

What is Movie News After Dark? It doesn’t even know anymore… Megan Fox and John C. Reilly are tonight’s lead story. The choice of lead image was bound to be a sexy one.

No word on what role either will play in the story of a Middle Eastern dictator who ends up in the U.S., where no one cares who he is.
