Shania Twain Joins Cast of New John Travolta Film
Shania Twain has joined the cast for John Travolta's new film, Trading Paint.
Variety reports that Twain, Michael Madsen and Kevin Dunn have signed on for Trading Paint, which also stars Game of Thrones actor Toby Sebastian. According to the trade magazine, 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."
Karzan Kader is directing Trading Paint from a script by Craig Welch and Gary Gerani, with Ambi Pictures and Paradox Studios signed on to finance and produce the project. Andrea Iervolino, Monika Bacardi, Silvio Muraglia, and Alexandra Klim will serve as producers, with AMBI Distribution in place to sell Trading Paint worldwide.
