According to The Hollywood Reporter, Clint Eastwood hired Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, and Spencer Stone to play themselves in the upcoming movie about their experiencing thwarting a terrorist attack. While traveling in Europe, the three men stopped an attempted terrorist attack on a train from Brussels to Paris by overtaking the man, who was armed with an AK-47 and saving the lives of the 500 people on board the train. The story went viral, where the friends, one of whom was in the National Guard and another in the U.S. Air Force, were praised for their bravery.
Also, cast in the movie include Jenna Fischer, Judy Greer, and Ray Corasani and playing the younger versions of the tree will be Paul-Mikél Williams, Max Ivutin, Bryce Gheisar, Cole Eichenberger and William Jennings.
The movie will be based on the book The 15:17 to Paris: The True Story of a Terrorist, a Train, and Three American Heroes, written by Sadler, Skarlatos, Stone and Jeffrey E. Stern.
Filming is now taking place in Atlanta, Georgia. According to Project Casting, producers are now hiring crew members and background extras to work on the movie. In fact, just last week Tammy Smith Casting, the extras casting director for the film, posted a casting call looking for people to work on a smoothie scene.
