“Glee” star Chris Colfer will make his film directorial debut with “The Wishing Spell” for FOX, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps company will produce the big-screen film.
“The Wishing Spell” will be an adaptation of the first book in Colfer’s fantasy children’s book series, “The Land of Stories.” The six-part series focuses on twins, who after the loss of their father, find themselves magically transported into a world where fairy tale characters are real.
The out actor will also pen the script and executive produce alongside Rob Weisbach.
