In ‘War Dogs’, two friends (Miles Teller and Jonah Hill) in their 20’s find a not well known exploit that let’s small business bid on military contracts. Starting small they work their way up to a 300 million dollar contract with the Pentagon. Of course, when we’re talking about that much money with weapons on the line, your going to start dealing with some shady people that want to kill you.
The film is by Todd Phillips, the director behind The Hangover. The whole idea probably sounds like a story that only could be made up in fiction. Sadly it’s not. The film is based on the true story “Arms and the Dudes: How Three Stones from Miami Beach Became the Most Unlikely Gunrunners in History”.
War Dogs comes out on August 19, 2016.
