Acclaimed singer-songwriter Toni Braxton is set to star in a Lifetime movie about the 2013 shooting scare at McNair Discovery Learning Academy.
The film, called “Faith Under Fire,” will debut next year, according to Deadline Hollywood. It’s based on the book, “Prepared for a Purpose: The Inspiring True Story of How One Woman Saved an Atlanta School Under Siege.”
Antionette Tuff, a bookkeeper credited with talking down the gunman before he could harm anyone, co-wrote the book. Braxton is said to be starring as Tuff in the film.

Tuff was at work in the front office of McNair on Aug. 20, 2013, when Michael Brandon Hill, 20, came in the school with a rifle.
Thanks to Tuff’s efforts to talk him into surrendering, no one was hurt.
