Clint Eastwood has cast three young Americans who stopped a terrorist attack on a high-speed train to play themselves in The 15:17 to Paris Nike Air Max Mens Sale , according to US media.
Anthony Sadler, Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos and US Air Force Airman First Class Spencer Stone were traveling through Europe when they overpowered a man armed with an AK-47 on a Paris-bound service carrying more than 500 passengers.
"Eastwood began a wide-ranging search for the actors who would portray the three Americans. The studio and Eastwood made their choices but at the 11th hour decided to have Sadler, Skarlatos and Stone portray themselves," Variety magazine reported on Tuesday.
The film follows the course of the friends' lives, from the struggles of childhood through finding their footing to the series of unlikely events leading up to the thwarted attack.
They leapt into action and stopped heavily armed Ayoub El Khazzani from completing an attack on the train from Brussels on August 21, 2015.
The three have since been hailed as heroes both in the US and in France, where they were awarded the Legion of Honor Nike Air Max Mens Shoes , the country's highest decoration.
Starring alongside the real-life heroes are Jenna Fischer (Hall Pass, TV's The Office) and Judy Greer (War for the Planet of the Apes) and Ray Corasani, the Hollywood Reporter said.
Eastwood's last two films - Sully and American Sniper - were also about real-life heroics, but this is the first time he has used real-life people to play their characters.
He directs from a screenplay by Dorothy Blyskal, based on the book The 15:17 to Paris: The True Story of a Terrorist, a Train, and Three American Heroes Nike Air Max Mens , by Sadler, Skarlatos, Stone and Jeffrey E. Stern.
Eastwood, 87, is also co-producing the Warner Bros film.

Select members of the public will be able to hail a free ride through their smartphones in taxis operated by nuTonomy, an autonomous vehicle software startup. While multiple companies, including Google and Volvo, have been testing self-driving cars on public roads for several years, nuTonomy says it will be the first to offer rides to the public. It will beat ride-hailing service Uber, which plans to offer rides in autonomous cars in Pittsburgh, by a few weeks.
The service will start small — six cars now Air Max Mens Clearance , growing to a dozen by the end of the year. The ultimate goal, say nuTonomy officials, is to have a fully self-driving taxi fleet in Singapore by 2018, which will help sharply cut the number of cars on Singapore's congested roads. Eventually, the model could be adopted in cities around the world, nuTonomy says.
For now, the taxis only will run in a 2.5-square-mile business and residential district called "one-north Air Max Mens Sale ," and pick-ups and drop-offs will be limited to specified locations. And riders must have an invitation from nuTonomy to use the service. The company says dozens have signed up for the launch, and it plans to expand that list to thousands of people within a few months.
The cars — modified Renault Zoe and Mitsubishi i-MiEV electrics — have a driver in front who is prepared to take back the wheel and a researcher in back who watches the car's computers. Each car is fitted with six sets of Lidar — a detection system that uses lasers to operate like radar — including one that constantly spins on the roof. There are also two cameras on the dashboard to scan for obstacles and detect changes in traffic lights.
The testing time-frame is open-ended, said nuTonomy CEO Karl Iagnemma. Eventually, riders may start paying for the service, and more pick-up and drop-off points will be added. NuTonomy.
