Eastwood to make movie on thwarted Paris train attacker

Clint Eastwood

Casting is now underway, with Eastwood aiming to begin production later this year (17).

The Hollywood veteran has chose to produce a movie based on the real-life survival story and subsequent book The 15:17 to Paris: The True Story of a Terrorist, a Train and Three American Heroes.

Dorothy Blyskal adapted the book for the feature, which will be produced by Eastwood, Tim Moore, Kristina Rivera and Jessica Meier.

Now, Clint Eastwood wants to immortalise the story of the three men who risked their lives to save their fellow passengers. After all, if America can produce a guy who is as good at hitting birds with a plane and then landing that plane in water as Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, then America itself must be pretty damn great.

PageGroup plc, formerly Michael Page International plc, is engaged in the recruitment consultancy and other ancillary services. The Company's North America segment includes Courseware, Assessments and Services businesses in the United States and Canada.

Now, the heroism of Skarlatos, a native of Roseburg, Stone, and Sadler is being turned into a movie.

Sadler, Skarlatos and Stone, high school buddies, were traveling together in Europe and boarded an afternoon Thalys train from Brussels to Paris on August 21, 2015.

They were the American backpackers who made headlines around the world after crash-tackling a would-be terrorist armed with an AK-47 on a crowded European train. Stone was a martial arts enthusiast and airman first class in the U.S. Air Force, Skarlatos was a member of the Oregon National Guard, and all three pals proved fearless as they charged and ultimately overpowered the gunman after he emerged from a bathroom armed and ready to kill.
