Clint Eastwood has decided to once again depict the heroism of otherwise everyday people on screen with his new film, “The 15:17 to Paris: The True Story Of A Terrorist, A Train, And Three American Heroes”, which is based on the brave actions of Alek Skarlatos, Spencer Stone, and Anthony Sadler on thwarting an ISIS terrorist.
The three American friends were on a train from Brussels to Paris when an ISIS terrorist came out of the bathroom armed and ready to kill. They attacked him and overpowered him, thus saving the potential victims on the train and becoming front-page heroes the next day.
Skarlatos was a member of the Oregon National Guard, and Stone was an airman in the US Air Force; both were able to use their training to help the bring down the attacker.
Skarlatos, Sadler and Stone wrote a book with the same name as Eastwood’s future film, to which Eastwood has secured the film rights, as well as the life rights of the heroes.
The film is set to start casting soon, as the script has already been written by newcomer Dorothy Blyskal. We will be following the production and update audiences on the release date once the film is completed!
