The story riveted two continents. And now it’s coming to the big screen thanks to legendary director Clint Eastwood – starring the very heroes who saved so many lives.
“The 15:17 to Paris,” set for release Feb. 9, tells the story of the 2015 Thalys train attack in which three Americans helped stop an armed Islamic terrorist from perpetrating a massacre on a French train.
Spencer Stone, Anthony Sadler and Alex Skarlatos, who arguably saved dozens of lives that day, will portray themselves in the film.
It’s a story not just of heroism but of faith.
“On that day, God had His hand on us,” said Sadler of the train attack.
Sadler, a Baptist preacher, explained: “We believe God’s providential will worked its way out. I’m just thankful they were there and got things done.”
Stone and Skarlatos also credit the Almighty with protecting them that day.
