Real Servicemembers Become Real Heroes and Then Real Movie Stars in 'The 15:17 to Paris'

Spencer Stone plays himself in Clint Eastwood's movie "The 15:17 to Paris"

Clint Eastwood does pretty much whatever he wants at this point. What he wanted to do in 2017 was making a movie about U.S. Air Force Airman First Class Spencer Stone, Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos and their friend Anthony Sadler. The three men were vacationing in Europe when they stopped a French train terror attack on August 21, 2015.

For Eastwood's movie about Stone, Skarlatos and Sadler, he cast the three men to play themselves. The film opens February 9, 2018. Check out the trailer below.

Eastwood expands the events of August 21st and tells the backstory of the three men's friendship, leading up to their moment of heroism.

The movie cast professional actors in supporting roles, so the first-timers will have backup from Jenna Fischer, Judy Greer, Ray Corasani, PJ Byrne, Tony Hale, and Thomas Lennon.
