During the late ’90s, my junior high class was completely fascinated by Dwayne â€˜The Rockâ€™ Johnson. They questioned teachers and fellow classmates with his infamous question: â€œCan you smell what The Rock is cooking?â€
Ten years and a few movies later, Johnson has made a name for himself outside the wrestling ring. He is just one of the many stars who will appear in Michael Bay‘s new passion project Pain & Gain and in this new image, people will once again be asking themselves: “Can you smell what The Rock is cooking?â€
Credit to ScreenCrush for revealing the photo (which you can check out below) of Johnson on the set of Michael Bayâ€™s new movie Pain & Gain. The film follows two muscle-headed body builders who attempt to start their life of crime by kidnapping a local business man, only thing is, things donâ€™t go according to plan.
Glad we are seeing something that doesnâ€™t contain huge explosions from a Bay movie. But that wonâ€™t last very long seeing that Bay will follow up Pain & Gain with Transformers 4. Still, the image is a nice change of pace and shows that Pain & Gain wonâ€™t be your average crime drama.
Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Mackie, Ed Harris, Rob Corddry, Ken Jeong, Tony Shalhoub, and Bar Paly also have roles in Pain & Gain, which is expected to hit theaters in 2013.
