NASHVILLE, July 31, 2015 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Visible Pictures, LLC and Big Film Factory announce that principal photography has commenced on I'M NOT ASHAMED, a faith-based biopic about the first student killed in the Columbine High School massacre, directed by Brian Baugh ("The Comeback Kids"). The film began shooting in and around Nashville, Tenn. on July 13 and will wrap on August 10th. Mother/daughter reality stars Korie Robertson (A&E's "Duck Dynasty," GOD'S NOT DEAD), Sadie Robertson (A&E's "Duck Dynasty," "Dancing with the Stars") and Bella Robertson, will join Ben Davies (COURAGEOUS), Nancy Stafford ("Matlock"), Jennifer O'Neill (SUMMER OF '42), Matthew Schuler ("The Voice"), Jaci Velasquez (LET THE LION ROAR), and newcomer Masey McLain, who plays "Rachel Scott."
I'M NOT ASHAMED will release April 20, 2016, the 17th anniversary of the Columbine massacre. Rachel Scott was 17 when she died.
"Rachel's story will break your heart and lift you up all in the same teardrop," says Brad Allen, producer. "Her truly unique relationship with God as revealed in her writings is an amazing display of truth and honesty that is every bit as relevant today as it was 16 years ago."
Based on Rachel Joy Scott's personal journals, the film tells the story of the young girl's search for acceptance, her journey of faith and her desire to show kindness and compassion to everyone--from the in-crowd to the outcasts. I'M NOT ASHAMED follows Rachel's life leading up to the Columbine shootings, and illustrates what it truly means to have a faith in Jesus strong enough to die for.
"Rachel wrote that she would one day touch the lives of millions," says Benny Proffitt, executive producer. "We are honored to help make this dream a reality."
