Warner Bros has announced that Clint Eastwood’s The 15:17 to Paris, will be released in the United States of America on February 9, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The movie is based on the true story of three Americans who foiled a terror attack on a Paris-bound train on August 21, 2015.
Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos and Spencer Stone, who had revisited their experience in the autobiographical The 15:17 to Paris: The True Story of a Terrorist, a Train, and Three American Heroes will play themselves in Eastwood’s drama.
Written by Dorothy Blyskal, the film has been produced by Eastwood, along with Tim Moore, Kristina Rivera and Jessica Meier. The 15:17 to Paris shares its release date with Fifty Shades Freed, the animated film Peter Rabbit and The Hurricane Heist.
Sue Kroll, President of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution for Warner Bros Pictures, said, “This is both a touching story of three lifelong friends and a compelling tale of patriotism and heroism, and we felt this would be a great window for audiences everywhere to experience this uplifting true story.”
