Chris Colfer Talks New Script!

Colfer Doesnt Sleep

Does this guys EVER stop working??

On one hand, we hope he does! He deserves to relax!

On the other, we hope he never does — everything he does is so brilliant!

And luckily, we've gotten word about what his next script is about!

Here's what Chris said in an interview about it:

"This next one is definitely a genre change for me. It's not set in the high school world. For the first time, it's something I had to do a lot, a lot, a lot of research for before I started working. It's a period piece that takes place at an asylum in the early 30s. It's interesting because while I was doing my research I met with a UCLA professor to talk about different disorders and conditions of asylums back in the day and I got so many suggestive looks on the Glee set because I would have all my books with me. People kept asking, "Chris, why are you reading books on asylums and schizophrenia and dissociative identity disorder?" I think everyone thought I finally lost it when I was reading the Coping With Mental Illness book [laughs].

It's not horror. There's no ghosts or monsters popping out at you. It's almost like a movie about characters after they have an experience like characters do in a horror movie. Almost like the aftermath of what a traumatic experience, a la a horror movie, would do to someone."

He even wrote himself a small supporting role — and let us just say that that movie sounds SO GOOD!

The kid has talent, that's for sure!

Not only that, but he's on a big roll too… the world premiere of Chris' feature-writing debut Struck By Lightning hits screens at The Tribeca Film Festival in April, while his debut novel, Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell, hits shelves on July 17!

Congrats on everything, Chris! We'd love to read over your draft if you want!

Ha!
