Well I am sure she accepted this role because it was John Travolta who wanted her to do this. She is very good friends with John Travolta.

MAN! I FEEL LIKE A MOVIE
Shania Twain is launching an acting career and is set to star in action flick Trading Paint with John Travolta

After two decades dominating the music business, Shania Twain is moving into acting

From Dan Wootton's Bizarre Column | The Sun | July 28, 2017

FOR two decades her hits have peppered film and TV soundtracks, driving the drama in everything from Corrie to Notting Hill.

But now it’s SHANIA TWAIN’s turn to appear in front of the cameras.

I can reveal that the world’s best-selling female country star is launching an acting career, with her first film role alongside JOHN TRAVOLTA in his upcoming action flick Trading Paint.

A source said: “Shania is one of the world’s best songwriters and has no problems feeling and connecting with emotions.

“Until now she has expressed that in her songs but she is ready for a new challenge and is giving acting a go.

“The past ten years have been tough for Shania. After the breakdown of her marriage in 2008 she feared she would never sing again.

“But she has recovered from that and is back stronger than ever. Her new album proves that, and so will her acting talent.”

While it might take a lot to impress Shania, Hollywood film bosses didn’t need any convincing when they cast her as Becca in Trading Paint, which also stars Transformers actor KEVIN DUNN and Game of Thrones’ TOBY SEBASTIAN.

In the film, Travolta plays a veteran racing driver drawn back to the track to compete against his son, played by Toby, in an increasingly intense and dangerous rivalry.

Shania will start shooting her scenes in Birmingham, Alabama, next month, then she will release her next album, Now, on September 29 — her first since 2002.

She explained how it tells all about her traumatic time away from the spotlight and the breakdown of her 17-year marriage when her best friend went off with her record producer husband MUTT LANGE — co-writer of her 1999 hit Man! I Feel Like A Woman!

In a happy twist, Shania is now married to Frederic Thiebaud — who was the husband of the best mate.

Hopefully she’ll have another happy ending in Trading Paint when it hits screens next June.

Shania Twain, Michael Madsen Join John Travolta’s Racing Movie ‘Trading Paint’

By Dave McNary | Variety | August 14, 2017

Country music star Shania Twain, Michael Madsen, and Kevin Dunn have joined the cast of John Travolta’s racing movie “Trading Paint.”

Principal photography launched this week in Alabama with shooting scheduled through mid-September at several Alabama locations. Toby Sebastian (“Game of Thrones”) will also co-star.

Karzan Kader, director of Tyler Perry and Doug Liman’s upcoming “The Year of the Great Storm,” is helming “Trading Paint” from a script by Craig Welch and Gary Gerani. Travolta portrays a down-and-out dirt track racing legend who is drawn back into the winner’s circle after his son, an aspiring driver, joins a competitor’s racing team, and incites an intense and dangerous competition between father and son.

Ambi Pictures and Paradox Studios are fully financing and producing the film. The producers are Andrea Iervolino, Monika Bacardi, Silvio Muraglia, and Alexandra Klim. AMBI Distribution is handling worldwide sales for the film.

Iervolino said, “It’s well known that dirt track racing is one of the most exciting sports in the world, and it’s also one of the most dangerous. Our story is rooted in that high-speed danger, but also very much character driven, and this is where having someone of John’s caliber and gravitas pays great dividends.”

Scene for 'Trading Paint' movie starring John Travolta, Shania Twain to be shot in Hoover Friday

By Jon Anderson | Hoover Sun | August 24, 2017

Golden Rule Bar-B-Q 
The Golden Rule Bar-B-Q at 1571 Montgomery Highway in Hoover, Alabama, is scheduled to be the location
of a scene to be shot for the "Trading Paint" movie starring John Travolta, Shania Twain and Tony Sebastian
on Friday, Aug. 25, 2017.

Producers of the “Trading Paint” movie that stars John Travolta, Shania Twain and Tony Sebastian are scheduled to film a scene for the movie at a Hoover restaurant Friday, the owner of the restaurant said.

Nick Manakides, owner of the Golden Rule Bar-B-Q at 1571 Montgomery Highway, said the film crew for the movie is supposed to arrive about 7:30 or 8 a.m., followed by extras at 9:30 a.m. and actors at 10 a.m.

They’re filming a scene in which a restaurant manager inappropriately touches the wife of a dirt track race car driver played by Sebastian, sparking a conflict, Manakides said.

There’s no word on what all cast members will be present for this scene, but about 80 cast and crew members are expected to be involved in filming the scene, Manakides said. About 16 of his employees are scheduled to be extras, he said.

He originally had hoped to play the restaurant manager until he learned what the scene was about and was told they needed someone with a different physique for the part, he said.

Manakides said there’s only about two minutes of screen time scheduled for the shot and he’s not sure how long filming will take.

He wasn’t sure why they chose his restaurant, but the director of the movie, Karzan Kader, had been coming to eat there frequently for several weeks with the director of cinematography before they inquired about filming there.

Manakides said he thinks they didn’t want a restaurant that looked too modern, and his restaurant looks exactly like it did when he opened in 1974. Another restaurant in Hueytown was considered, but his Golden Rule Bar-B-Q was smaller and more intimate than the restaurant in Hueytown, he said.

Manakides said the producers of the “Woodlawn” movie were supposed to shoot a scene at his restaurant when that movie was made but ended up going somewhere else because he was going to charge them a fee for shutting his restaurant down. This time, he decided to let the producers of “Trading Paint” have time at his restaurant for free, he said. “We’re doing it for the fun of it,” he said.

The “Trading Paint” movie tells the story of how a veteran race car driver (Travolta) and his son, a fellow driver, (Sebastian), overcome family and professional conflicts and balance competition, ego, resentment and a racing nemesis to come out stronger on the other side, according to the International Movie Database website.

Much of the movie reportedly is being shot in the Birmingham area, particularly the Bessemer/Hueytown area, between mid-August and mid-September. The film is due out in theaters in June 2018, according to IMDB.

On The Set Of ‘Trading Paint’ With Shania Twain And John Travolta

By Rachel West | ET Canada | October 25, 2017

Shania Twain is gearing up for her big screen feature film debut with a little help from her veteran co-star John Travolta.

“I think Shania is born to be on film,” the “Grease” actor tells ET Canada’s Matte Babel. “Her videos say that. Her videos are a knockout but I think this is such a beautiful role.”

ET Canada was on the set of “Trading Paint” in Alabama where Twain says acting feels totally natural to her.

“Well, it’s fun and it feels really natural,” the Grammy-winning Canadian superstar says, adding being on set with Travolta helped calm her nerves. “I thought I was going to be really intimidated.”

In the drama, two-time Oscar nominee Travolta stars as Sam, a veteran race car driver who learns to balance ego, family drama, personal relationships and competitive nature with his racing son. Cast as Sam’s girlfriend Becca, acting newcomer Twain says she was totally in awe of her co-star’s skills.

“Just watching him in the moment, this guy cries on the spot! Is this guy for real or what?! I am just really amazed,” she tells ET Canada. But she’s not the only singer on the set. Twain reveals Travolta “sings on the spot all the time.” Does this mean there’s a future duet between the two in the works?

“I didn’t reveal the little secret that we are thinking about doing a duet,” Travolta says. “‘I told him I was looking at you, she looked gorgeously beautiful,’ this song came right into my head, this is between takes. Shania said, “I love that song. That would be a good duet.'” “I wanted to do a duet album with him years ago,” Twain confirms.

Naturally, being on a movie set surrounded by cars makes the 63-year-old actor think of his “Grease” days.

“Music is a big part of my life and I miss doing it and, of course, if I want to have an effect on others I will break out into a familiar song,” Travolta teases. “I thought if I broke into ‘Grease  Lightning’, I bet it would cause a very good effect.” And he was right: “I did the whole thing, the whole crew went crazy, it was the perfect set up!”

According to this article, the movie finished filming a couple weeks ago...

Shania Twain Says John Travolta ‘Coached’ Her Through Filming ‘Trading Paint’

By Deborah Evans Price | Sounds Like Nashville | October 27, 2017

Shania Twain is back and busier than ever. In addition to promoting her chart-topping new album, Now, and prepping for her 2018 tour, Twain recently filmed a new movie, Trading Paint, with John Travolta.

“We finished it a couple weeks ago and that was just an incredible experience,” Twain tells Sounds Like Nashville. “I enjoyed it and I enjoyed getting to know John. He’s a very sweet person. I’ve known him for several years now just on short little chats, but now [working on] this movie, we got to know each other a little bit better. I’m just lucky to have this film experience because he’s been very nurturing. He coached me through it.”

In Trading Paint, Travolta plays a down and out dirt track racing legend, who is drawn back into the winners circle after his son, an up and coming driver, joins a competitor’s racing team. Naturally, a father/son rivalry ensues and the competition gets intense. Directed by directed by Karzan Kader, the movie was filmed on location in Alabama.

“I’m Becca in the movie,” shares Twain. “I’m a school teacher in a small southern town, just starting my life over from being a big city girl and I find love in a dirt car racer. It’s a really sweet movie and the actors are just so strong.”

Twain says when the opportunity arose, she was excited to tackle a new challenge. “I learned so much. It’s a whole new chapter of my life I wasn’t expecting because it was really last minute,” she says. “I wasn’t expecting it at all, so I love the spontaneity of it. That’s why I dove into it because I didn’t have too much time to think about it.”

Though she’s starred in numerous music videos, Twain’s only other major film experience was a cameo as herself in the 2004 movie I Heart Huckabees, starring Jude Law, Naomi Watts, Mark Wahlberg, Dustin Hoffman and Lily Tomlin. She’s eager to adding more acting roles to her resume. “I definitely will look more into acting,” she says. “I loved it, so I’d like to do it again.”

First Look! John Travolta Is a Race Car Driver Romancing Shania Twain in Trading Paint

By Kara Warner | PEOPLE | November 8, 2017

John Travolta is earning his racing stripes!

In the new movie Trading Paint, Travolta, 63, stars as a dirt track racing legend who is down on his luck and reluctantly drawn back into the sport when his son joins a competitor’s racing team.

shania_tradingpaint_people110817_1

PEOPLE has an exclusive first look at photos (click to enlarge) of the Grease star in all his racing gear glory — including a shot of him in the driver’s seat, as well as the film’s leading lady, music icon Shania Twain.

shania_tradingpaint_people110817_2

“This was John’s first time racing on a dirt track,” producer Andrea Iervolino tells PEOPLE. “He put in the time to train and proved he was a natural. We put him out there with other professional dirt track racers as well for some of the scenes and he really held his own. Talladega is an inspiring location to film and you can feel the history and grit of the track. It’ll inspire any driver who gets out on it.”

shania_tradingpaint_people110817_3

Twain plays Travolta’s girlfriend in the film and Iervolino says she brought a lot of heart to the project. “I couldn’t imagine anyone else up there next to him now and she’s made the role her own,” he says. “Movies today need more prominent female roles and Shania really outperforms in this role.”

shania_tradingpaint_people110817_4

Iervolino also praised Travolta’s talent and demeanor on set: “Having someone as talented and driven as John on set really lends itself to the story,” he says. “He’s very powerful in his scenes and his chemistry with the other actors is so natural and effortless. It really makes this story come to life in ways we couldn’t have predicted.”

shania_tradingpaint_people110817_5

Directed by Karzan Kader, Trading Paint also stars Michael Madsen (Kill Bill), Toby Sebastian (Game of Thrones), Kevin Dunn (Warrior).

It’s scheduled to open in theaters in 2018.
