Clint Eastwood’s 15:17 to Paris Trailer Features Real-World Heroes

Real-life heroes play themselves in a new trailer for Clint Eastwood’s The 15:17 to Paris. Eastwood’s 36th feature film as a director was written by Dorothy Blyskal, based on a book by Jeffrey E. Stern, Spencer Stone, Anthony Sadler and Alek Skarlatos. Warner Bros. at first hoped to have the film out in time for this year’s Oscar race, but it was held back until 2018.

15:17 to Paris tells the story of 2015’s Thalys train incident, when a lone gunman attacked a train from Amsterdam to Paris. Unarmed Americans Spencer Stone, Anthony Sadler and Alek Skarlatos risked their lives along with other passengers to subdue the terrorist. The American trio, along with British man Chris Norman, received the Legion of Honour from the French government in recognition of their bravery. For the movie, Clint Eastwood made the unique decision to cast the real-life heroes as themselves.
