Variety reports that Emmy-nominated Glee star Chris Colfer will make his movie debut with the comedy Struck By Lightning.

Chris Colfer also wrote the screenplay, which was described as a coming-of-age comedy in the vein of John Hughes' classic 1980s movies.

David Permut is producing and he will find a director and other cast members before taking the project to financiers later next year.

Struck By Lightning will go before cameras next year during Chris Colfer's hiatus from Glee.
