DOD, Army help set scene for American heroes in ’15:17 to Paris’ movie: Every year, there are a few blockbuster movies based on true stories of U.S. service members, and the upcoming “15:17 to Paris,” directed by the legendary Clint Eastwood, is no exception.

What makes this one unique, though, is that all three men who were the real-life heroes play themselves in the movie.

“15:17 to Paris” is about Spencer Stone, Aleksander Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler — three childhood friends who stopped a gunman on a Paris-bound train in August 2015, preventing the loss of innocent lives. The trio was internationally praised for their heroics.
