April 21 (UPI) -- Oscar-winning filmmaker Clint Eastwood is bringing the non-fiction book The 15:17 to Paris: The True Story of a Terrorist, a Train, and Three American Heroes to the big screen.

The Hollywood Reporter said Dorothy Blyskal adapted the bestseller as a screenplay for Warner Bros., while Eastwood will direct and produce.

Eastwood is expected to begin casting soon with an eye to start production later this year, Deadline.com said.

WB also released Eastwood's recent hits Sully and America Sniper, which were both about extraordinary, real-life Americans, as well. 15:17 is the story of how three men thwarted a possible terrorist attack on a train from Brussels to Paris in 2015.
