John Travolta coming to Hueytown to film movie

HUEYTOWN, AL (WBRC) - Actor John Travolta is coming to Hueytown to star in a new movie about dirt racing.

The movie is called "Trading Paint."

Production is expected to be completed in 2017, no word yet when the movie will be released.

A spokesperson for the Jefferson County School System says the production crew has entered into an agreement to use the old Hueytown High School as a central meeting location and for prop storage.

They will use the facility from July 10 through mid-September.

About 75 cast and crew members are expected for the movie production.

We're told they will stay in hotels around Hueytown and Bessemer and have most meals catered in the school cafeteria.

It's unclear exactly where Travolta will film in and around Hueytown.
