Clint Eastwood has always bucked the Hollywood snowflake crowd, and he is doubling down by signing on to direct a new movie. Eastwood, a true master at making patriotic American films, is taking on a real life story about terrorism and American heroes fighting to save lives. It’s totally politically incorrect, but it’s all true, a story straight out of the headlines that you don’t want to miss.
Eastwood is directing another major motion picture about American heroism. Following recent hits like “American Sniper” and “Sully,” about the lives of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle and pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, Eastwood is tackling terrorism and the Islamic State.
The new film is being developed from the book titled “The 15:17 to Paris: The True Story of a Terrorist, a Train, and Three American Heroes.” Deadline reports, “In August 2015, an ISIS terrorist boarded train #9364 from Brussels to Paris. Armed with an AK-47 and enough ammo to kill more than 500 people, the terrorist might have succeeded except for three American friends who refused to give in to fear.”
The film is the true story of three Americans, Anthony Sadler, Oregon National Guardsman Aleksander Skarlatos, and former U.S. Airman Spencer Stone, and their heroic effort to stop the jihadist. The foiled attack became the subject of much media attention as Sadler, Skarlatos, and Stone become international heroes for their efforts to stop terrorist Ayoub el-Khazzani.
Only Clint Eastwood could get away with taking on such a controversial subject. Films are powerful if done right, and this film will not only prove just how vulnerable we truly are to terrorist attacks but it will also shed a positive light on President Donald Trump’s travel ban. Something all liberals will utterly hate.
Sadler and Skarlatos appeared on “Breitbart News Daily” last November to discuss their book. Sadler said, “The narrative is often, ‘Oh, yeah, the military is why these guys were able to do that,’ but I think the book portrays us as just the three regular friends, twenty-something friends that we were, and that we were just put in an extraordinary situation.”
Sadler added, “The circumstances just kind of fell into place where we were able to act and not only save ourselves but everybody else.” Indeed, you could say it was divine intervention that put those three Americans on that train, saving countless lives, but this is not a subject that liberals want to hear about.
Clint Eastwood is too big for the Hollywood political operatives who want any movie like this quashed. He has proven time and time again that he is in touch with what regular Americans want to see. Patriots are tired of movies that are dedicated to glamorizing the liberal agenda, showing all of the evils that Christians see as sin as normal and good. Thank God for Eastwood, who doesn’t give a damn about fitting in with the celebrities. His body of work proves that he is far above anything those numskulls could ever do.
