Glee’s Chris Colfer is Heading to the Big Screen!
It’s not a surprise if Chris Colfer is Glee-ing right now, he’s heading to the big screen!
As confirmed by his rep, the Emmy-nominated “Glee” star is set to make his feature film debut. He will star in “Struck by Lightning,” a coming-of-age comedy that was based on his own script.
The movie was planned to be shot next summer, during Glee’s hiatus. Colfer’s manager Glenn Rigberg (You Don’t Know Jack) will executive produce and Steve Longi (Prayers for Bobby) will co-produce.
Youth in Revolt’s David Permut is currently looking for a director for the project. And although this is a first experience for 20-year-old Colfer, Permut praised him by saying that the script is reminiscent of the work of late writer-director John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles).
There’s no word yet on when the film would actually hit theaters, but we definitely excited to see it. Way to go, Chris!
