Todd Phillips’ “War Dogs Goes for a ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ of Arms Dealing in First Trailer

With the Hangover franchise presumably in the rear view mirror, writer/director Todd Phillips has lately been working on a much more intriguing project, War Dogs.

Based on the true story (written in an Rolling Stone by Guy Lawson) article of the young, enterprising American gun runners David Packouz and Efraim Diveroli, it looks like Jonah Hill gets to live up his character in the Wolf of Wall Street (replace stocks with guns) and team up with Miles Teller in what seems like one of the many batshit crazy stories to come out of Afghanistan.

Watch the trailer here, then look for War Dogs in theaters August 19th.
