Corddry, Turturro Join Bay’s “Pain and Gain”

Rob Corddry (“Hot Tub Time Machine,” “Children’s Hostpital”) and John Turturro (“Transformers”) are joining the Michael Bay-directed “Pain and Gain” reports Variety and Latino Review.

Based on a true story, the action follows a group of bodybuilders (led by Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson) who engaged in a campaign of kidnapping, extortion and murder in Florida.

The not so bright group kidnapped Miami businessman Marc Schiller, tortured him and left him for dead. He survived and to get even he hired hired a private investigator (Ed Harris) to track them down.

Turturro is circling the role of Schiller, a part Albert Brooks was previously linked to. Corddry plays a former competitive bodybuilder who now owns the gym where Wahlberg’s character works and becomes the accountant for the scheme.

Bay, Donald De Line and Ian Bryce are producing. Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (“Captain America: The First Avenger”) wrote the script.
