Toni Braxton Movie Coming to Lifetime
Singer Toni Braxton is set to star in “Un-Break My Heart,” an original movie based on her memoir of the same name. The authorized movie begins production later this year.
The project follows “Braxton’s ups and downs through severe chronic illness, financial troubles and divorce while navigating her son’s autism and family struggles.”
What exactly would that look like? In a 2013 interview, Braxton recalled thinking about quitting the music business. “I was in a small place in my life and I was going to retire,” Braxton explains. “It’s not even a question. I said, ‘I’m tired of fighting.’ I was feeling sorry for myself. I was depressed over where my career was going. I was also down with my health,” she continues.
“I found out that I developed blood clots and I couldn’t get a grip on this lupus. I didn’t know what was going on with me. I was just in a very uncomfortable place in my life and where I wouldn’t wish my worst enemy to be.”
Braxton, who is currently on tour, will executive produce in the made-for-TV movie and Vondie Curtis-Hall will direct.
