Chris Colfer's Struck By Lightning Gets Simultaneous Theatrical And OnDemand Release Date Through Tribeca Films!

| Filed under: Film FlickersGleeChris Colfer


You go, Chris Co! You go!!

Given the fact that it received a standing ovation after its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, we're not too surprised!

Chris Colfer's film debut - as an actor AND screenwriter - Struck By Lightning has been acquired by Tribeca Film for distribution, and plans to release the coming-of-age comedy to theaters in late 2012, as well as a simultaneous release via OnDemand, iTunes, Amazon Watch Instantly, VUDU, Xbox, and Samsung Media Hub!

Geoff Gilmore, Chief Creative Officer of Tribeca Enterprises, says:

“Showcasing his remarkable talents not only as an actor but as a writer and storyteller, Chris Colfer infuses this reinvention of the high school comic-drama with such spirit and joy that he almost makes us fondly nostalgic. Rousing, fresh, superbly acted by a strong ensemble, and wonderfully directed by Brian Dannelly, we are delighted to be partnering with Chris and his fellow filmmakers to share this new take on a classic genre for a new generation.”

And Brian Dannelly elaborates:

"I was hoping Struck by Lightning would end up somewhere like Tribeca Film, because I watch films all the time on demand. It’s exciting that an independent film like ours can now be seen by so many people—instantly—at the same time the film is premiering in theaters.”


Such a fantastic way for Glee and film fans alike to see this, especially when they wouldn't have been able to otherwise (if it was only debuting to a limited theatrical release)!

We couldn't be MORE thrilled for Chris, and everyone else involved!

Congrats, congrats!

We cannot WAIT to see this movie! How about U??

    Watch something with Colfer in it? No way. If I won't watch you, Perez, I'm not going to watch Colfer. I like NPH, but he doesn't scream GAY in everything he does. If I want to watch a flamer, I'll watch Carson Kressley, because he is utterly charming and funny. But Colfer? No. He has no charm; he has only ridiculously feminine mannerisms and a truly annoying voice. You and Colfer deserve each other.

    We all know that there's haters everywhere, and if you don't like Perez or Chris why would you be in this Site and specially reading this article. Chris colfer should has gone thru enough, and he deserves so much respect. I'm so happy for him and I'll know he's going to keep doing much more greater thing:-)

    You rock Chris! I wish you continued success in your career! :)

    Wow, most of these comments are extremely homophobic. Why don't you guys get with the 21st century and grow up? Whether he is gay or not should not have to do with the film. If you don't like him nor Perez, then why would you be reading an article about Chris Colfer's new film ON Perez Hilton's website?

    Re: Omniscient Gal – bro i think you're getting chris and kurt mixed up. go watch the trailer because idk about you, but i don't see any feminine mannerisms there.

    Re: Omniscient Gal – Why the heck are you on this site if you're so utterly homophobic? Nobody on here gives a fuck about your opinion because lets see YOU star in one of America's most famous TV shows, write a book, and manage to write a script, plot, etc for a movie while actually STARRING in it. It's bitches like you that will get absolutely nowhere by flaming and saying hateful things when you can't do any of this, and all that's going to earn you is a TON of feedback from supporting fans that are willing to take you down because of what you do. You're really going to write a comment on Perez's blog saying that you don't watch him, and you won't watch Chris Colfer? Nobody is forcing you to do anything! Grow up, and learn that Chris Colfer is Kurt Hummel, the CHARACTER that "screams gay" if you want to go that direction. So FUCK. OFF.

    Re: CaliCoyote – And if you were to release a film, who would watch it? Lesbians and bulimics? Why waste your time commenting if what you're going to say is a shitty flame?
