At this point, Michael Bay is pretty much synonymous with blockbuster action movies. His last three films (all 'Transformers' flicks) have had a combined budget of more than $500 million. Which is why it comes as a surprise that Bay's next project will be in the $20 million range.

The director's plans on shooting a $20 million dark comedy called 'Pain and Gain.' Described as 'Pulp Fiction'-esque. The film is based off a 1999 newspaper article about two Florida bodybuilders who became involved in a kidnapping plot gone wrong.

Bay briefly talks about 'Pain and Gain' in the video below.
