Jonah Hill to Star in Todd Phillips’ ARMS AND THE DUDES; Miles Teller Offered Other Lead Role
Last we checked in on Arms and the Dudes, Jesse Eisenberg and Shia LaBeouf were in talks to star. Eisenberg has a conflict playing Lex Luthor in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and possibly Suicide Squad, and the LaBeouf negotiations never moved beyond the courting stage. Director Todd Phillips (The Hangover) has a great backup plan. Jonah Hill closed a deal to star and Warner Bros. made an offer to Miles Teller to co-star.

Phillips will produce with Mark Gordon (Source Code) and Bradley Cooper. Production is expected to begin next spring.
