Shania Twain is setting her sights on the big screen. Twain will make her acting debut in "Trading Paint," co-starring John Travolta. The movie, which hits theaters on Feb. 22 according to IMDb, follows a dirt track racer named Sam (Travolta) who returns to the track after years in retirement. Twain portrays Becca, Sam's love interest.

The film was directed by Karzan Kader and filmed in Alabama. "Trading Paint" also stars Michael Madsen and Barry Corbin.

In an interview with Sounds Like Nashville, Twain revealed that her character is a "school teacher in a small southern town, just starting my life over from being a big city girl."

"I enjoyed it and I enjoyed getting to know John," Twain told Sounds Like Nashville in 2017. "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."
