First Look: Jonah Hill And Miles Teller In Todd Phillips' 'Arms And The Dudes'

22 May 2015 10:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Todd Phillips knows dudes, so it was probably only a matter of time until the word actually landed in one of his movie titles. And so it goes for his upcoming "Arms And The Dudes," another story of bros getting in way over their heads, except in this case, it's all based on true events. Jonah Hill and Miles Teller star in the movie based on Guy Lawson's Rolling Stone article (read it right here) that follows 25-year-old David Packouz and 21-year-old Efraim Diveroli, who scored a $300 million Pentagon contract to arm allies in Afghanistan, taking them on a journey through the absurd and political world of international arms trafficking that would end up with the duo being busted for fraud. Bradley Cooper is one of the producer's on the movie, and the images suggest something slightly more serious than we're used to from the filmmaker. Read More: Todd Phillips »

First Arms & The Dudes Pictures Reveal a Very Serious Miles Teller and Jonah Hill

22 May 2015 10:10 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first images from Arms & the Dudes, director Todd Phillips’ first film since The Hangover Part III, have landed online thanks to Phillips himself. Based on a Rolling Stone article of the same name, the film tells the true story of two young guys who won a $300 million contract from the Pentagon to supply America’s allies in Afghanistan with munitions. After 85 deliveries to the war-torn country worth over $66 million, their Miami offices were raided by federal agents and the two were charged with 71 counts of fraud. Phillips had been developing the project for a few years as a producer through his and Bradley Cooper’s production shingle at Warner Bros., but last year he finally pulled the trigger on directing. Miles Teller and Jonah Hill star in the two lead roles, and Phillips co-wrote the script with Stephen Chin and Jason Smilovic. The first images, which Phillips unveiled on his Instagram, »

Miles Teller And Jonah Hill Are Pot-Smoking Wheeler Dealers In Stills For Arms And The Dudes

22 May 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Now that Warner Bros. has slated the action comedy for a release in 2016, we’re beginning to see the first signs of life from Todd Phillips’ upcoming picture, Arms and the Dudes. Taking to Instagram, The Hangover director shared several images from the production, showcasing Jonah Hill and Whiplash star Miles Teller as a pair of pot-smoking wheeler dealers.

Lifted from true events, the film follows the two friends as they quickly amass a small fortune by brokering deals with U.S. military contracts. It isn’t long before their illicit escapade spins out of control, though, and “The Dudes” find a lucrative deal worth $300 million sitting on their laps; one which would see them do business with some of the most ruthless players in the Iraq War.

Phillips has earmarked each still with the day of shooting, and though these may no be indicative of the final cut, »

First Photos from Todd Phillips' New Movie 'Arms and the Dudes'

22 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

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 »

Project X Is Getting A Sequel With A Pretty Obvious Title

21 May 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In an unsurprising move, a sequel to 2012.s Project X has been ordered because of the fact that the original made a ton of money off a nothing budget. But rather than breaking the mold with the title for the follow-up, those involved simply decided to name it Project Xx. Which, while pretty obvious, suggests that the raunchy comedy will pick-up right where the original left off. The Wrap were the first to report that the Todd Phillips-produced sequel is currently in pre-production. At the moment though we.re still not sure if either the film.s trifecta of stars (Thomas Mann, Oliver Cooper, and Jonathan Daniel Brown), its director Nima Nourizadeh, or its writing team of Matt Drake and Michael Bacall will return. However, the last details we had on the sequel suggested that Bacall had been asked to write a draft of the script. Project Xx has »

Project Xx Gets A Release Date

19 May 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It's already three years since director Nima Nourizadeh put the tricks of the microbudget found-footage horror trade to use on the teen comedy genre and came up with Project X. Polarising as the finished product was, a sequel has been talked about ever since, and Warner Bros. have now announced Project Xx's release date, along with arrival times for The Accountant and Arms And The Dudes.Not much is yet known about the hard-partying follow-up, outside the fact that original co-writer Michael Bacall has been working on it solo this time. No director is yet attached, and it's unclear whether Todd Phillips will return as producer. And given the time elapsed and the cast's advanced age, it seems unlikely that any of the first gang will be back - unless we ditch the high-school angle and put them in college or something. Even then, we'll be amazed if they get Miles Teller back. »
