Nearly three years after making media headlines, Alek Skarlotos, Anthony Sadler, and Spencer Stone are once again in the spotlight. The three friends became heroes after preventing an August 21, 2015 ISIS terror attack that could have killed hundreds on a train from Brussels to Paris.

The story behind the heroic act is now a film titled “15:17 to Paris.” It hits theaters Feb. 9.

Clint Eastwood, who directs the film, made an unlikely casting decision.

“I was going through the regular casting thing of looking through a lot of actors on tape, good actors too, and they would have done a good job. But I kept looking at the guys and I kept looking at their faces and going over this, and finally I said, ‘Do you guys think you could play yourselves?’ ” said Eastwood.

‘We Just Couldn’t Say No’

Sadler, Skarlatos, and Stone “just couldn’t say no” when Eastwood presented the idea.

“We said yes right away,” Stone recalled in an interview with CBN News. “And then when he left the room, for the first time we all kind of looked at each other like, ‘Can we do this?’ ”

Sadler added, “We didn’t want to risk the success of the film, having not acted before.”

The film takes viewers back to the young men’s very early years.
