Jonah Hill is ready for the cameras.

The actor stepped out Wednesday afternoon in Burbank, Calif. to begin filming his latest big-screen comedy.  

Wearing a light blue shirt, beige slacks, slicked-back hair and a noticeable tan, Hill's ensemble made it appear that he gained a few pounds for his new movie role. Others, however, began to speculate that the funnyman was simply wearing a fat suit for his latest gig.

Whatever the case may be, Hill is teaming up with Miles Teller for Arms and the Dudes, a true story based out of Miami Beach.

The film tells the story of two guys who scored a $300 million contract from the Pentagon to become weapon suppliers for U.S. allies in Afghanistan.

Hill and his partner soon find themselves way over their heads and out of their elements. As a result , they're going to cause some serious trouble for other countries.

Arms and the Dudes is based on the 2011 Rolling Stone article by Guy Lawson titled "The Stoner Arms Dealers: How Two American Kids Became Big-Time Weapon Traders."

Hangover and Old School director Todd Phillips is behind the project set for a national release in 2016.
