Remember when those three Americans thwarted an Islamic terrorist attack on an Amsterdam-Paris train?

If you thought that story would make a good movie, so does Clint. Mia Galuppo, The Hollywood Reporter:

Post Sully and American Sniper, Clint Eastwood will continue his streak of movie-making about regular guys who turn into unexpected heroes.

The director has set his next project at Warner Bros. based on the story of Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos and Spencer Stone, three Americans traveling in Europe who found themselves on a train from Brussels to Paris, where they thwarted an attempted terrorist attack by overpowering the man armed with an AK-47.

This is great news. I’m glad there are still some people in Hollywood who remember that there are still American heroes who don’t wear funny costumes or have the benefit of CGI.
