We cannot wait to see Struck by Lightning.

Not only will it be Chris Colfer's big-screen acting debut but...

The 21-year-old Glee star wrote and produced the flick.

"He plays a kid who refuses to go down," Allison Janney, who plays his mom, said earlier this week at the premiere of her latest flick, The Help. "He's a kid that gets tortured by all the kids at school—endlessly and mercilessly.

"But he refuses to disintegrate and it makes him stronger and he's sort of impenetrable," she continued. "And it's also sort of heartbreaking. It will make you cry."

Colfer doesn't sing in the movie, but no matter.

"He just so impressed me and so intimidated me with everything that he does," Janney gushed. "He writes children's books, he now writes movie and he acts in them—he's got a lot going on, that kid!"

And we couldn't be happier for him.
