Clint Eastwood has signed up to direct the big screen adaptation of The 15:17 To Paris, a true-life tale about the three Americans who subdued an ISIS terrorist on a train from Amsterdam to Paris in 2015.

Los Angeles, April 21 (IANS) Actor-filmmaker Clint Eastwood has been roped in to direct a drama film based on the book "The 15:17 To Paris: The True Story Of A Terrorist , A Train, And Three American H

Dorothy Blyskal has adapted the script from the book, and Clint is planning to begin casting now and wants to start filming the Warner Bros. picture later this year.

Whoever gets cast in the film will be expecting to work hard, as Tom Hanks - who had the lead role in 'Sully: Miracle on the Hudson' - recently admitted the 86-year-old filmmaker treats his actors "like horses".

He said of working with the actor-turned-director: "You certainly don't want one of those Eastwood looks.

"He treats his actors like horses because when he did the 60s series 'Rawhide', the director would shout 'Action!' and all the horses bolted. So when he's in charge, he says in a really quiet soft voice, 'All right, go ahead,' and instead of shouting 'Cut!' he says 'That's enough of that.' It's intimidating as hell!"

The new counter-terrorism measure has been approved by senior Garda officers following a number of trial runs at major social events in recent weeks.The use of special barriers and bollards, capable of withstanding direct impacts and prevent a lorry from hitting the intended target, is also likely to be extended in the coming months.
