Allie Grant, Ashley Rickards, Brad Henke, Robbie Amell and Carter Jenkins have all joined the cast of Brian Dannelly’s STRUCK BY LIGHTNING. Glee’s Chris Colfer is the wordsmith behind the tale, which follows an outcast high school student hell-bent on becoming a journalist tries to get his school to care more about the literary magazine he’s started by blackmailing them into contributing. The group of actors join Allison Janney, Dermot Mulroney, Polly Bergen, Sarah Hyland, Angela Kinsey and Christina Hendricks, who are already set for this film. Production is set to begin this week.
Producing the project is Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, David Permut, Mia Chang and Rob Aguire.
