Its all looking good for Glee star Chris Colfer and we are also so excited for his film debut, Struck By Lightning. But that’s not the only good thing he writ the script too!!
The film will be about a high school senior Carson Phillips, played by Chris, who gets killed when lightning strikes…leading to a bunch of flashbacks throughout the film!
While Struck By Lightning had its world premiere in April in NYC, it’s recently been reported that it’ll officially hit theaters by late 2012!
The film’s director, Brian Dannelly recently said:
“I really love the material and when I met [Colfer], I thought he was amazing. I thought I could bring something to the film. I like films about underdogs. I like the character that he had written; someone who is strong and trying to figure out his place in the world.”
Brian Dannelly also wrote and directed the 2004 Mandy Moorecomedy, Saved!.
Chrises new film only took two weeks to film and the production was also able to tie down some pretty big actors,including Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks and Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland!
