Spencer Stone: The Hero Who Used Jiu-Jitsu To Disarm A Gunman has A Movie Directed By Clint Eastwood

Spencer Stone, one of three Americans who stopped a suspected terror attack on a train in France in August, is going to have a movie about his heroism. The film is directed by the legend of the motion picture industry himself, Mr. Clint Eastwood!

On August 21, 2015, Stone and his childhood friends were traveling together during a vacation in Europe when they boarded a train from Amsterdam bound to Paris via Brussel. Stone and his friends managed to stop gunman armed with AKM assault rifle. Stone tackled the armed suspect, and was stabbed in the neck and eyebrow and almost lost his thumb.

In an interview, Stone said:

I 100 percent believe that Brazilian jiu-jitsu saved my life at that moment. Every move I used on him was very, very basic — you can learn in five minutes. If we had a course like that in the Air Force for people to learn basic moves, it could help anyone in a situation like that.”

The movie called “The 15:17 To Paris” is set to hit theaters on February 9. The film is going to cover events from  Spencers Life, including disarming the gunman on the train and much more. you can see the trailer for the movie below :
