The studio did not indicate whether “The 15:17 to Paris” would have an Academy Awards qualifying release before the end of the year.

If they also plan a limited release  during the holidays this release in the middle of the Oscar season means a lot.We'll have to see.

The current issue of Entertainment Weekly (December 1) has a brief interview with Clint, and this picture:



Quote
Clint Eastwood’s The 15:17 to Paris depicts how passengers on a French train in August 2015 overwhelmed an armed terrorist, preventing a probable mass shooting. It’s also a grand experiment for the 87-year-old filmmaker, who cast many of the real people involved in the incident to play themselves, including three young Americans (Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, and Spencer Stone). Did anyone suggest he think twice about that decision? “Oh, yeah,” he says. “A lot of people suggested that.”

Quote
How did you come to cast the actual people as the film’s leads?
I looked at a lot of very good actors who could possibly have done the job. But I kept looking at the faces of these young men — “boys,” I call them. I thought these faces were unique. It just struck me that it would be an interesting experiment. It could be bold or reckless, depending on how it comes out. [Laughs] Anyway, they were enthusiastic about trying it, so we went with them, and I think people will be a little surprised. But as we got going, I started looking at other people who were involved. I thought, I wonder if they’d all like to come back? One thing led to another.

Coincidentally (or not), the Film Society of Lincoln Center is currently screening a 37-film series devoted to "The Non-Actor":

https://www.filmlinc.org/series/the-non-actor/

It includes films by such acknowledged cinematic masters as Robert Bresson, Abbas Kiarostami, Roberto Rossellini, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Sergei Eisenstein, Satyajit Ray and F.W. Murnau, as well as a director Clint worked with, Vittorio De Sica. There's a related article on casting non-actors in the current issue of the Society's magazine Film Comment, available online here:

https://www.filmcomment.com/article/one-in-a-million/

Quote
Ever since the workers left the Lumičre Factory, “real people” have played an essential role in cinema. The notion of what constitutes nonprofessionals or non-actors can be a slippery one, but broadly speaking, the sociopolitical authenticity and unfiltered psychological realism presumed in such casting has been sought at least since Italian neorealism. (Or some fusion of the two: “People ask, where did you find these faces?” Fellini said to Roger Ebert in 1969. “None of them are professional actors; these faces come from my private dreams.”) Today, a tradition of utilizing non-actors is alive and well in films from the U.S. to Taiwan to Iran, but there remains something radical in featuring an untrained performer on screen. The non-actor problematizes the tidy binary between documentary and fiction we commonly accept, opening an ontological can of worms and causing us to question what we mean by realism and naturalism.

It was about time we changed the title of this thread. Please post all news stories and features here until the film has screened for critics and/or audiences, at which time we'll start a "Reviews and Features in the Media" thread.

I'm actually beginning to be really curious about this one.

According to IMDB page for The 15 17 to Paris the music is composed by the renowned Thomas Newman......His scores can capture Americana like fewer others........an interesting move.....

Yes guys.I was the one who noticed who is gonna compose the music and then edited the IMDB page for The15:17 to Paris. I am hyped for this one. and as you all know this is the first time a major and well-decorated music composer is composing soundtracks for An Eastwood film in a long time. Please share your minds and how do you feel about this?

Confused now ! ......The trailer just released credits music to Christian Jacob who also wrote the music for Sully......Clint would appear to be staying loyal to his crew.....Thomas Newman? ??
