The stars of Clint Eastwood’s movie will be the three real heroes who prevented the terrorist attack on a Paris-bound train in 2015.
The 15:17 to Paris tells the story of Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos and Spencer Stone, who rushed into action when a terrorist, with an automatic gun, got on the train in Belgium.
The three childhood friends from Sacramento were on visiting Europe when the incident occurred.
Morocco-born Ayoub El-Khazaani shot one passenger with a handgun and then wanted to open fire with his AK-47, but fortunately the weapon got stuck.
Stone, 23 at the time and serving in the U.S. Air Force, used this moment to go after the terrorist.
Skarlotus, 22 and a member of the Oregon National Guard who recently got back from a tour in Afghanistan, followed Stone with Sadler, 23, behind him.
The terrorist stabbed Stone numerous times with a razor-blade knife, wounding his neck and his thumb.
Anyhow, the three young men managed to gain control of El-Khazaani, and then held him until the authorities came.
Then-French President Francois Hollande awarded Stone, Skarlatos and Sadler with the Legion of Honor, because of their heroic actions.
According to Variety, the three men will have good-sized roles in 15:17 to Paris, “the film is expected to begin during their childhood and show their friendship leading up to the moment that changed their lives. That means the roles will not be full-on leads.”
The last movie directed by Eastwood is Sully, a story of Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, the Air Force veteran who successfully emergency landed a US Airways passenger jet on the Hudson River in 2009, saving all on board.
