Oh good! We've been waiting to hear some news on this project! We're glad to hear that this is still happening!

For those Gleeks who aren't in the know (and we venture to guess there aren't many of you), Chris Colfer wrote a screenplay for a movie called Struck By Lightening that was picked up last year and was in the midst of preproduction the last we heard. Of course, Chris has been SUPER busy the last few months with Glee, so not much headway has been made with the flick. However, in a recent interview, he did give an update that revealed when production will get underway. He explained:

"It’s the most exciting and the most terrifying thing I’ve ever done. It’s very strange to be so active behind the camera (taking meetings, making calls, etc.). I held a meeting in my trailer once during the Rocky Horror episode, so I was in complete Riff-Raff make-up. I don’t think anyone took me seriously. We have an amazing team working on the movie. David Permut is producing (Youth in Revolt, Charlie Bartlett) and Brian Dannelly is directing (Saved!). We’re casting my character’s parents right now (which feels like reverse adoption) and we start filming the day after my last stop on the Glee 2011 tour. I wrote it for the kids in high school who are overachieving in their own right and underappreciated for it, just like I was."

Excellent! We're so please to hear its all coming together!

But no break? Poor thing, you'll be exhausted from touring the world over! At least take a day or two to sleep before jumping into this! You deserve that much!

    *Struck by Lightning

    WASHINGTON — A Pentagon document classifies homosexuality as a mental disorder, decades after mental health experts abandoned that position.
    The document outlines retirement or other discharge policies for service members with physical disabilities, and in a section on defects lists homosexuality alongside mental retardation and personality disorders.
    You are a sad sad human being, colfer!
    True shame!!!

    Um, lightning? Or was he bleached?

    Sounds boring

    Re: Bibety Bobety Boo – um no. Your ignorance is unbelievable and why did you even come here to bash on him. He's a perfectly nice and wonderful human being and you've no right to hate on him. I've no idea what made you decide to come to this website and comment just spread unworthy hate to chris colfer, who is more perfect than you'll ever be. please, just go away. And i, personally, can't wait for his movie.
    true shame, on you.

    Re: Bibety Bobety Boo – - If you believe it's a mental disorder, why are you blaming him for it?

    Re: klainebows-everywhere
    Chris Colfer is a disturbed little boy who has used a serious mental sickness to get where he is.
    He is promoting this terrible sickness to young unsecure children.
    A nasty virus that are spreding and he must be stopped.
    He is absolutely not a nice human being….he is a disgrace to everything good and common sense!
    He is a liar and his days in the spotlight are thank god numbered.
    If you do a little background checking on homosexuality you will find it is a disorder created after birth by weak, unsecure children who had no friends when they grew up and when puberty kicked in they went horribly wrong.
    They wanted sex and a little playfriend and ended up wit a dick in their ass!Re: oh_dear
    Because it is a choice!!

    Far too early to judge this yet-to-be-done project. Who would have thought Damon/Affleck would have had the hit that made them big names a while back?

    I have a friend who went to high school. She was a director for a play and mentions that he was really high strung about acting and would often would get pissy, I guess he put one of his fingers to her face and she punched him, not even lesbians liked him it seems.

    Re: ArmaAngelus – He does strike me as a pissy little bitch.



  11. 11

    i wish he was.



  12. 12

    Sounds good. I hope it'll be good anyway, the plot is something I and a number of people I know could relate to and I don't know if it's been done before, so you go Chris! :)

    Re: ArmaAngelus – You have a friend who went to high school? Amazing.

    Re: Bibety Bobety Boo – If you really believe it's a mental illness, then mental illnesses are not a choice. I would get angry about your posts, except I realize that YOU actually do have a mental illness and I just feel sorry for you.

    Re: oh_dear
    Homosexuality becomes a mental illness the second you take that choice!
    Chris colfer is a scam artist….a snake!!



  16. 16

    It'll be interesting to see where Chris, "I am God" Colfer ends up after Glee is over. The little turd is so full of himself.

    Re: Bibety Bobety Boo – hmmm, nothing better to do today than to come on a gay mans blog to try to get reactions from your silly comments. weirdo.

    Re: tearaivu
    Hey! Just out spreading the truth again :)
    I am bi polar…..or bi-winning!
    I am starting to like you!

    Re: Bibety Bobety Boo – By the way, before you changed your account i asked, why do you blame your dads when it's the other people who abuse you. Why do you change your account every so often



  22. 22

    Re: tearaivu
    Because my dads knew what kind of hell they would put an innocent child thru but did not care as of their selfish ugly souls.
    And as you already know : homosexuality is a mental disorder.
    Nobody want to be forced to live with insane people!



  23. 23

    Re: Bibety Bobety Boo – I know lots of gay people and not one of them is insane, have you considered going to talk to a councilor



  24. 24

    Re: tearaivu
    Huuuuuh , homosexuality is a mental sickness, my friend!!

    I have been in therapy my whole life but my only problem is that i want to get the hell away from the anal intruders!!
    Next year, next year will be wonderful!!

    Re: Bibety Bobety Boo – I wonder if you can live yourself if you say these things to a gay person and they end up killing themselves, how would you feel then



  26. 26

    I think he´s overhyped at this point. I would like to see him acting someone besides himself for once. It´s like Adam Brody.

    Re: Bibety Bobety Boo – what i find to be so hilarious is that the male in glee who bullied kurt/ chris colfer's character so much turned out to actually be gay himself. ironic… is that your issue bibety?
