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.
