Clint Eastwood is 87-years-old and he keeps getting better and better as a director. His last film, 2016’s Sully, is among the best in his filmography, and he’s not slowing down. Eastwood is next tackling the true story of a terrorist attack on a Paris train. Eastwood cast the actual three heroes in the incident in his film, and it’ll be interesting to see if they either get overwhelmed by the filmmaking process or bring untold authenticity to recreating the incident.
