Clint Eastwood was in Sacramento on Monday. Here’s why

Longtime actor and director Clint Eastwood is working on his next film. To do so, he has come to Sacramento.

“The 15:17 to Paris” scheduled to debut Feb. 9, 2018, is about three local men – Anthony Sadler, Spencer Stone and Alek Skarlatos – and the role they played in stopping a terrorist attack on a train in Europe. While riding from Amsterdam to Paris on Aug. 21, 2015, they took down a man who was armed with an assault rifle and pistol as he left a bathroom on the train.

“We making a movie,” Sadler wrote with the photo.

The childhood friends will star as themselves alongside Jenna Fischer, Judy Greer and Jaleel White.
