15:17 to Paris
Friday - Sunday, May 25 - 27
Starring Alex Skarlatos, Anthony Sadler & Spencer Stone


In the early evening of August 21, 2015, the world watched in stunned silence as the media reported a thwarted terrorist attack on Thalys train #9364 bound for Paris--an attempt prevented by three courageous young Americans traveling through Europe. The film follows the course of the friends' lives, from the struggles of childhood through finding their footing in life, to the series of unlikely events leading up to the attack. Throughout the harrowing ordeal, their friendship never wavers, making it their greatest weapon and allowing them to save the lives of the more than 500 passengers on board.

 

In spring 2017, Clint Eastwood was grilling Spencer Stone, Alek Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler for details about their harrowing takedown of a heavily armed ISIS recruit on a crowded train heading from Amsterdam to Paris. At the time, Eastwood also was considering various 20-something actors to play the real-life trio whose story formed the basis of his new film The 15:17 to Paris when it hit him that he need look no further.

 

"I was going over and over it with them because I wanted to get as much accuracy as I could into the film, and one day it just crossed my mind as I was looking at him. I don't want to sound Norma Desmond-ish, but the faces just fit," Eastwood tells The Hollywood Reporter. "And I just thought, ‘I wonder if they could do it?' I think there are some wonderful actors around that could've played this, but there's something about this particular project and the heroism that was involved and the way they handled the thing that is just kind of unique, so I thought I'd try that here. And I just said, ‘I think I'll take a shot at it.'"

 

A Hitchcockian nod?  Eastwood doesn't necessarily make cameos in his films, but in this one, there are a couple of references to his career as an actor and director.  An image of Eastwood's face from Pale Rider (1985) appears on a character's T-shirt.  And a poster from Letter From Iwo Jima (2006), directed by Eastwood, appears on Spencer Stone's room during the childhood scenes.
