At long last, Shania Twain’s acting debut, Trading Paint, will be released. After more than a year of anticipation, the film will make its debut on February 22. Starring both Twain and John Travolta, the movie tells the story of a racing veteran and his son, a fellow driver, overcoming both personal and professional conflicts and coming out stronger on the other side.
Filmed in Alabama in 2017, the movie allowed Twain to stretch outside of her comfort zone with the help of Travolta’s acting advice.
“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,” she told Sounds Like Nashville previously.
She continued, “I learned so much. It’s a whole new chapter of my life I wasn’t expecting because it was really last minute. 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.”
As the movie gears up for its February release, filmmakers released the highly-anticipated trailer showcasing the character’s high stakes and massive tension. Check it out above!
