In the early evening of August 21, 2015, the world watched in stunned silence as the media reported a thwarted terrorist attack on Thalys train #9364 bound for Paris--an attempt prevented by three courageous young Americans traveling through Europe. The film follows the course of the friends' lives, from the struggles of childhood through finding their footing in life, to the series of unlikely events leading up to the attack. Throughout the harrowing ordeal, their friendship never wavers, making it their greatest weapon and allowing them to save the lives of the more than 500 passengers on board.
Stephen Matthew Smith

Clint Eastwood was attached to direct The Ballad of Richard Jewell (????) since 2014 but dropped out in 2016 to do Impossible Odds (????) as his next directorial project after finishing Sully (2016) but the project wasn't ready yet & needed more time in development. So, Eastwood needed another project to take on & decided to sign on to helm this project as his next directorial film.
A flashback is set in 2005, but a poster for "Letters from Iwo Jima" is seen. The movie came out in December 2006. Materials for the film came out late in 2006, so in reality no items from the film would be available in 2005.
