In the wake of “American Sniper” and “Sully,” Clint Eastwood is continuing his true story hero film streak with a new film based on the book “The 15:17 to Paris” for Warner Bros. Pictures.
The story deals with Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos and Spencer Stone, three Americans traveling in Europe who found themselves on a train from Brussels to Paris where they thwarted an attempted terrorist attack by overpowering the man armed with an AK-47.
One of the three was in the Oregon National Guard and the other in the U.S. Air Force. The trio penned the book with the help of Jeffrey E. Stern and Dorothy Blyskal has adapted the book into a feature.
Eastwood, Tim Moore, Kristina Rivera and Jessica Meier will produce.
