First Photos from Todd Phillips' New Movie 'Arms and the Dudes'
Meet your new Arms Dealers, David and Efraim. After making three The Hangover movies, what is director Todd Phillips up to next? This is his next project, a movie called Arms and the Dudes, "based on a true story" of two young men who were contracted by the Pentagon to arm America's allies in Afghanistan. Miles Teller plays David, Jonah Hill plays Efraim, to friends who suddenly start bidding on military contracts, but then they end up in-over-their-heads with the Afghanistan deal. This sounds like it might be really good, especially coming from the comedic mind of Todd Phillips. SlashFilm found four new photos posted online.
Here's the new photos from Arms and the Dudes, from Todd Phillips on his Instagram @toddphillips1:
Based on a true story, Arms and the Dudes follows two friends in their early 20s (Hill and Teller) living in Miami during the Iraq War who exploit a little-known government initiative that allows small businesses to bid on U.S. Military contracts. Starting small, they begin raking in big money and are living the high life. But the pair gets in over their heads when they land a $300 million deal to arm the Afghan Military—a deal that puts them in business with some very shady people, not the least of which turns out to be the U.S. Government. Arms and the Dudes is directed by Todd Phillips (of Road Trip, Old School, Due Date, The Hangover Trilogy previously), from a screenplay by Stephen Chin and Todd Phillips. Warner Bros will releas Arms and the Dudes in theaters everywhere on March 11th, 2016 next spring. Arm up & stay tuned.
