Join the award–winning stars and director of “War Dogs.” Acclaimed actors Jonah Hill (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Moneyball”) and Miles Teller (“Whiplash,” “Fantastic Four”) and producer–director–writer Todd Phillips (“The Hangover” movies) collaborated for the first time on the much anticipated comedic drama, opening on August 19. Based on a true story, “War Dogs” follows two friends in their early 20’s 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. 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 and entities, including the U.S. government. Interviewed by New York Times culture reporter David Itzkoff.
