Scott Rosenberg Finds Pain and Gain


Scott Rosenberg has come aboard Michael Bay’s Pain and Gain, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. He’ll touch up the screenplay to Michael Bay’s dark comedy, written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.

The Paramount Pictures project stars Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie, Ed Harris, Bar Paly, Rob Corddry and Tony Shalhoub. Based on a true story, the film follows a group of bodybuilders who engaged in a campaign of kidnapping, extortion and murder in Florida.
