PLOT: “War Dogs” based on a true story, follows two friends in their early 20s (Hill and 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.
The incredible true story of two 20-year-old stoners who became international arms dealers will head to the big screen this August with War Dogs. The two young men, David Packouz and Efraim Diveroli, who won a $300 million contract from the Pentagon to arm America’s allies in Afghanistan. The film, based on a 2011 Rolling Stone article, stars Miles Teller and Jonah Hill as the weed-loving, weapons-selling dudes, and in the newest trailer for the film, we see the dark, dangerous underbelly of their unlikely career path.
