In 1999, the Miami 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. On Friday, April 26, director Michael Bay premieres the story on the big screen, starring actors Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Ed Harris.
