Check out the featurette above on the making of Clint Eastwood’s latest film The 15:17 to Paris. As Eastwood states in the video, the idea of having the real heroes play themselves snowballed and he ended up with nearly a cast of people who were actually there.

It makes you question why they would want to relive such a terrifying moment in their lives, but who’s going to pass up the opportunity to work on a film with Clint? The film tells the story of the 3 Americans who thwarted a terrorist attack on a train bound for Paris in 2015.

The 15:17 to Paris arrives in cinemas February 9th. Check out the featurette and let us know your thoughts below.
