'Glee' Star Chris Colfer to Make Movie Debut With 'Struck by Lightning'


Chris Colfer


The 20-year-old actor writes the movie's script himself and will team up with 'Youth in Revolt' producer to bring the project to movie theaters.

"Glee" star Chris Colfer is set to be "Struck by Lightning" when he makes his movie debut in his own comedy. The Emmy-nominated actor wrote the script for the coming-of-age film himself and has teamed up with "Youth in Revolt" producer David Permut to bring the project to the big screen.

And Permut admits he was blown away by the quality of the screenplay, comparing Colfer's talents to that of late director John Hughes. He tells industry paper Daily Variety, "I was very impressed with how sophisticated (Colfer's) writing is. He may be only 20 but he's an old soul."

The movie will be shopped around studios in the New Year and production is scheduled to begin next summer.

Chris Colfer's "Glee" co-star Lea Michele reportedly will also make big screen debut with "New Year's Eve", a follow-up to romantic comedy "Valentine's Day".
