Sacramento natives Spencer Stone, Anthony Sadler and Alek Skarlatos will appear in Clint Eastwood's next film, "The 15:17 to Paris" - and a trailer for the movie debuted Wednesday. Bruce Berman executive produces, and Eastwood, Tim Moore, Kristina Rivera and Jessica Meier produce. Three courageous young Americans put their lives on the line to save the 500 passengers on board, and this film tracks both the event itself and what happened in the lives of the three men which led up to this moment.

"The 15:17 to Paris" trailer follows the trio's lives up until that fateful afternoon, showing them as dealing with school bullies as boys and playing make-believe war in the Northern California woods. In doing so, they likely saved the lives of hundreds of people on the train.

Eastwood ("Sully", "American Sniper") directs from a screenplay by Dorothy Blyskal, based on the book by Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, Spencer Stone and Jeffrey E. Stern.

Will you see The 15:17 to Paris in theaters? Their roles will not be the full leads since other actors will play their younger selves.

Eastwood is going above and beyond for that grasp at authenticity - the film was also shot at the actual location of the attempted attack. [Laughs] Anyway, they were enthusiastic about trying it, so we went with them, and I think people will be a little surprised.

Warner Brothers has released the first trailer for their upcoming film THE 15:17 TO PARIS.
