Brian Dannelly ("Saved!," "Pushing Daisies") is onboard to direct Golden Globe-winning "Glee" star Chris Colfer in the high school comedy "Struck by Lightning" reports Variety.

The film will be shot in the spirit of pics penned by the late John Hughes, but specific plot details are being kept under wraps.

Colfer, who will make his big screen debut, also penned the script. David Permut ("Youth in Revolt") is producing and the film will be shot during the "Glee" star's summer hiatus.
