Alek Skarlatos story headed for big screen
The story of the Roseburg man many people call a hero, Alek Skarlatos, is headed for the big screen.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Clint Eastwood has signed on to direct The 15:17 to Paris.
It’s based off the book Skaraltos and two other Americans wrote about thwarting a terror attack on a Paris-bound train.
The three gained international recognition for their heroics.
So far there is no word on production dates or casting choices.
Skarlatos has not yet commented on the project.
