Just shortly after she became a bonafide movie star in the role of a lifetime alongside the one and only John Travolta, this country music princess is back on set – getting ready for her second major movie role!
Released in February 2019, Shania Twain‘s very first major movie role as an actress came when she was cast as “Becca” – the love interest of Sam Munroe (John Travolta) for his film about a family divided by racing and competition, Trading Paint.
The movie was a unique one, for certain. And it told a story about a veteran racer and his son. Between personal and business conflicts, the two end up going separate ways – and out of it comes a bitter competition between the two…until they realize the truth and come out stronger on the other end.
Twain’s role is as a supporting actress and highlights her own ability to put on a performance – one that she’s shown us many times on stage. It’s clear that her time spent as an entertainer has prepared her for acting in a unique way…and now she’s taking on a whole new role.
This time, in a Christian film.
Based on the life of Christian superstar Jeremy Camp, this new biopic looks to speak his truth about a journey of love, loss, and ultimately – faith.
Lionsgate Studios who will be producing the film announced on Monday, May 13th, 2019 that Shania Twain would be joining this all-star cast of actors for the upcoming film – set to be released in March 2020.
Titled after his song “I Still Believe,” the biographical movie will be directed by brothers Jon and Andrew Erwin and will star “Riverdale” actor KJ Apa as Camp, Gary Sinise as his father, and Twain as his mother.
We are excited about the first trailers to come out from this incredible story and talented stars – and we will be sure to let you know when they do!
