The 15:17 to Paris — Trailer


added: Wed, Dec 13th '17

After previously replicating the Miracle on the Hudson in his critically acclaimed plane-crash drama "Sully," filmmaker Clint Eastwood, who's once again recreating a real-life heroic event, is taking things to a new level of accuracy.

For his latest biographical drama, Eastwood has cast real-life American heroes, Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, and Spencer Stone, to play themselves in a dramatized recreation of the 2015 Thalys train attack, during which they stop an armed terrorist while on board a high-speed train traveling from Amsterdam to Paris.

"The 15:17 to Paris," for which a trailer has just been released, will also trace back to their childhood in Carmichael, California where Anthony, Alek, and Spencer first met and became close friends. The film will also chronicle Alek and Spencer's military training as an Oregon National Guardsman and a U.S. Air Force Airman, respectively.

Based on the best-selling memoir and adapted for the screen by screenwriter Dorothy Blyskal, the film also stars Jenna Fischer, Judy Greer, Ray Corasani, PJ Byrne, Tony Hale, and Thomas Lennon. While kid actors Paul-Mikel Williams, Bryce Gheisar and William Jennings play the younger version of Anthony, Alek, and Spencer.

"The 15:17 to Paris" will be hitting theaters on February 9, 2018.

In the early evening of August 21, 2015, the world watched in stunned silence as the media reported a thwarted terrorist attack on Thalys train #9364 bound for Paris -- an attempt prevented by three courageous young Americans traveling through Europe. The film follows the course of the friends’ lives, from the struggles of childhood through finding their footing in life, to the series of unlikely events leading up to the attack. Throughout the harrowing ordeal, their friendship never wavers, making it their greatest weapon and allowing them to save the lives of the more than 500 passengers on board.

The heroic trio is comprised of Anthony Sadler, Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, and U.S. Air Force Airman First Class Spencer Stone, who play themselves in the film
