The Grease and Xanadu star will play the mother of a teen hockey phenomenon in Score: A Hockey Musical, which begins shooting in Toronto next week.

Director Michael McGowan, whose screen credits include One Week and Saint Ralph, said he managed to land the pop singer-turned-actress by sending her the script through a network of friends.

She was the one that he wanted, but McGowan said he never imagined Olivia would accept the role.

Olivia will co-write and perform a song for the film's final credits, along with Canadian singer-songwriter Marc Jordan, who plays the hockey dad.

The movie is set to be released on October 22.
