The other day I told you about how Michael Bay wants to make a “small, Pulp Fiction-y” type movie between Transformers 2 and 3. /Film has since dug up a little more info about the project, and by more info I mean comparisons to more movies.
Described as “a mixture of Fargo and Pulp Fiction” or “Point Break with bodybuilders”, Pain & Gain [based on this 1999 feature from the Miami New Times] tells the true story of a couple of Florida steroid-abusing knucklehead bodybuilders who become criminals involved in an extortion ring and a a kidnapping plot that goes horribly awry.
The Fast and the Furious was Point Break with cars, so I imagine Point Break with bodybuilders will be awesome. I’ve always said the only thing that would’ve made it better was greasy guys flexing in speedos. That always gets me pumped. I might have to bring a spotter.
