War Dogs is the story of two young men who won a $300 million contract from the Pentagon to arm America's allies in Afghanistan.
Based on a true story, War Dogs follows two friends in their early 20s (Jonah Hill and Miles Teller) living in Miami Beach 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 dollar 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. Todd Phillips (of Road Trip, Old School, Starsky & Hutch, School for Scoundrels, The Hangover I-III, Due Date) directs from a screenplay written by Phillips, Stephen Chin and Jason Smilovic.
