According to the Winnipeg Free Press, the musicians spent four days in New Orleans on set of the film directed by Jay Roach ('Austin Powers').
"It was really hard work, long days and about 200 people on set," the band's manager Gilles Paquin said. "But it's one of the biggest movies of the year and it's great positioning for the band."
The comedy will have the two lead actors portraying battling political candidates in North Carolina for a congressional seat. Bachman and Turner appear performing their classic 'Takin' Care of Business' as the winning candidate's victory tune. There's no confirmed release date but the film is expected to be out before the U.S. Presidential election vote in early November. Dan Aykroyd, John Lithgow and Dylan McDermott are also in the film.
The Roach-Bachman association isn't new as Roach used Lenny Kravitz's cover of 'American Woman' by the Guess Who (Bachman's former band) for 1999's 'Austin Powers 2, The Spy Who Shagged Me.'
Bachman and Turner released a self-titled album in 2010. Last fall, Bachman also released a book entitled 'Randy Bachman's Vinyl Tap Stories.'
