The 15:17 to Paris to Include Real American Heroes
The next film from 87-year-old director, Clint Eastwood, is ’15:17 to Paris’ and will include real American heroes. Instead of finding the most popular actors and actresses, Eastwood plans to honor the saviors who stopped a terrorist on a train bound for Paris.
Eastwood’s film, ’15:17 to Paris,’ is specifically about three American heroes: Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, and Spencer Stone. It will shed light on the men’s friendship from their youthful years leading up to the attack whilst demonstrating the impact of their heroic actions after the event. Considering a large majority of the film will be during their childhood, the heroes are not necessarily going to be the biggest stars of the film.
This film is based on the 2016 novel, “The 15:17 to Paris: The True Story of a Terrorist, a Train, and Three American Heroes,” written by the heroes themselves and Jeffrey E. Stern. The novel and film identify the heroic acts of these three men taking down a armed gunman who injured three people on a train from Amsterdam to Paris. Production for the film began just last week and it is already expected to be another superior Eastwood film packed with action and full of depth.
Some of the actors and actresses of ’15:17 to Paris’ will include Jenna Fischer, Judy Greer and Ray Corasani. Additionally, Paul-Mikel Williams, Max Ivutin, Bryce Gheisa, Cole Eichenberger, and William Jennings will play the younger versions of the American heroes Sadler, Skarlatos and Stone.
Similarly to Eastwood’s ‘Gran Torino,’ most of the actors and actresses are unknown. Despite the fact that we don’t know many of the names of the starring roles, it is expected to be a successful follow-up to his box office hit, ‘Sully.’ Moreover, the fact that Eastwood is using real American heroes and authors is both honorable and exciting.
