Country music star Shania Twain and famed “Grease” and “Saturday Night Fever” actor John Travolta’s new racing movie “Trading Paint” will film in Hoover, Ala. on Friday the Hoover Sun is reporting.
Nick Manakides, owner of the Golden Rule Bar-B-Q at 1571 Montgomery Highway, told the Hoover Sun the film crew for the movie is supposed to arrive at his restaurant at about 7:30 or 8 a.m., followed by extras at 9:30 a.m. and actors at 10 a.m.
The Hoover shoot is at least the second Alabama location in which production has filmed since principal photography launched in the state last week. Shooting is scheduled to continue through mid-September at several Alabama locations, particularly the Bessemer/Hueytown area outside of Birmingham.
The film tells the story of a veteran race car driver (Travolta) and his son (Tony Sebastian), a fellow driver as they overcome family and professional conflicts, and try to balance competition, ego, resentment and a racing nemesis in order to come out stronger on the other side.
The movie is scheduled for a June 2018 release, according to IMDB.
