Tribeca Film has acquired U.S. rights to STRUCK BY LIGHTNING, a film starring and written by GLEE breakout star Chris Colfer. The high school comedy had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival and also stars Allison Janney, Polly Bergen, Rebel Wilson, Christina Hendricks and Dermot Mulroney. In the film, a flashback tells the story of high school senior Carson Phillips (Chris Colfer), who was destined for bigger things than his close-minded small town could ever offer but was suddenly killed by a bolt of lightning in his school parking lot. The film remains an upbeat tale, which Tribeca Film will release in late 2012 with a theatrical release day and date with on-demand platforms.
