The Christian Post is reporting that "I'm Not Ashamed," a film about Rachel Joy Scott, the first student killed in Columbine High School and a girl who was targeted for her Christian faith, will be released October 21.

Columbine killers and students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, knew that Scott, 17, was Christian. Moments before her death, they asked her, "Do you still believe in your God?"

With a gun at her head Scott replied, "You know that I do."

Sadie Robertson from "Duck Dynasty" will playing Scott's cousin, Charity, who converted Scott to Christianity. Sadie's younger sister, Bella, will also be in the film, as well as their mother, Korie, who will portray Scott's aunt.

Scott was the first of 12 students and one teacher who were gunned down at Columbine on April 20, 1999, "I'm Not Ashamed" is based on her journals. It is being released by the Christian film company Pure Flix.

In one of her journal entries, Scott wrote: "I've always been drawn to hands. I think it's because it's the way we touch people. If one person could go out of their way to show compassion, it could start a chain reaction."

Benny Proffitt, executive producer and founder of the youth organization First Priority, told The Christian Post, "Rachel wrote that she would one day touch the lives of millions, and we're honored to help make this dream a reality."

"I'm Not Ashamed" was filmed in and around Nashville, Tennessee. The cast includes newcomer Masey McLain as Rachel, Ben Davies ("Courageous"), Jennifer O'Neill ("Summer of '42") and Jaci Velasquez ("Let The Lion Roar"). The film was directed by Brian Baugh ("The Comeback Kids").
