Pain & Gain: From New Times Story to Michael Bay Film

In 1999, New Times published a three-part series called "Pain & Gain" by writer Pete Collins. The story revolved around a gang of local bodybuilders with a penchant for steroids, strippers, and quick cash. They later became known as Miami's Sun Gym gang and quickly developed a taste for blood and money.

Now in 2013, director Michael Bay is bringing the story to the big screen starring actors Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Ed Harris.
