Chris Colfer won a Golden Globe last year for his role on Glee and has been busy, writing a pilot for Disney Channel and two children’s books as well as penning the screenplay for, co-producing and starring in Struck By Lightning. Brian Dannelly directed the high school comedy-drama that co-stars Christina Hendricks, Allison Janney, Dermot Mulroney and Rebel Wilson. David Permut is producing with Rob Aguire and Mia Chang, and the plan is for the film to come out sometime this year. ICM packaged the film and is repping rights. Here’s the trailer:
