Olivia Newton-John to Star in 'Score: A Hockey Musical' Flick

Four-time Grammy Award winner Olivia Newton-John is set to co-star in a new movie musical called "Score: A Hockey Musical," according to the Associated Press.

Newton-John, star of the 1978 film adaptation of the Broadway musical GREASE, will play the mother of a teen hockey star. Michael McGowan, director and writer of the award-wining "Saint Ralph," will direct.

Aside from acting in the film, Newton-John will co-write and perform a song for the movie's credits with co-star and singer-songwriter from Canada Marc Jordan. Jordan plays her husband in the film.

The film begins shooting in Toronto next week and is set to be released on October 22.

Newton-John also starred in the movie musicals Xanadu and is one of the world's top-selling recording artists with popular songs like "I Honestly Love You," "Please Mr. Please," and "Come on Over." When the FOX series "Glee" starts again this spring, she will sing her hit song, "Let's Get Physical."
