Clint Eastwood casts real soldier in Paris train attack movie

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Veteran actor-filmmaker Clint Eastwood has roped in Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, and Spencer Stone to play themselves in his next movie, "The 15:17 to Paris."

The film will tell the story of the three Americans who stopped a terrorist on a train bound for Paris, according to The Hollywood Reporter.


Paul-Mikel Williams, Max Ivutin, Bryce Gheisa, Cole Eichenberger, and William Jennings will play younger versions of the Sadler, Skarlatos and Stone.

Jenna Fischer, Judy Greer, and Ray Corasani will also join the real-life heroes in the film.

The casting move is similar to Eastwood's "Gran Torino," which featured an almost unknown cast outside of Eastwood, who also starred in the movie.

The film is based on the book of the same name by Sadler, Skarlatos, Stone and Jeffrey E Stern. Dorothy Blyskal will write the script.

Eastwood will produce with Tim Moore, Kristina Rivera and Jessica Meier.
