Jonah Hill and Miles Teller land a $300-million deal in 'War Dogs'.

Two friends in their early 20s living in Miami Beach during the Iraq War exploit a little-known government initiative that allows small businesses to bid on US 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 US government. Based on true events.

War Dogs is an American biographical comedy-drama, directed by Todd Phillips. The film stars Academy Award nominee Jonah Hill, Miles Teller, Ana de Armas and Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper, who also co-produced.
