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.”
Dannelly, who also wrote and directed the 2004 Mandy Moore comedy, Saved!, explained that they managed to pull off the film, despite low budget constraints and scheduling issues!
Colfer’s movie was made in just over TWO weeks and filmed when he was on hiatus from Glee!!!
We can’t wait to see how it all turned out…especially since hearing it got a standing O during its world premiere!
