Next Eastwood movie will feature Oregon hero's story in stopping terror attack
Legendary actor turned acclaimed director Clint Eastwood is drawing from real-life events for his next project. And it's something an Oregon native played a role in.
Remember the foiled terror attack in 2015 aboard a train bound for Paris?
Roseburg's own Alek Skarlatos was one of three Americans who overpowered a gunman and kept him from opening fire.
Eastwood's movie, "The 15:17 to Paris," will bring the story to the silver screen.
It's based on a book Skarlatos co-wrote with the two other heroes that day.
