This is really really old though. The website has had this same information posted since summer 2011.
Sorry, but don’t get too excited by this. As this August 2012 Wall Street Journal article said of The Little Leftover Witch: Disney Channel, “for the moment, has decided not to produce a pilot.”
According to this Wall Street Journal article, Disney has decided not to produce a pilot for The Little Leftover Witch at this time. It’s television though, pilots are pitched, picked up, and discarded constantly. It may still happen eventually, it may not.
— Chris Colfer - What was it like getting notes from executives on your Disney pilot? (x)
Almost overnight, Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel on “Glee,” is turning into a one-man cottage industry. Whereas several of his cast mates have recorded albums or pursued jobs on stage, Mr. Colfer has turned to writing books and movies.
The 22-year-old actor wrote, stars in and executive produced an independent feature, “Struck By Lightning,” that Tribeca Films will release this fall. Meanwhile, his first young adult novel, “The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell,” entered the New York Times Bestseller Children’s Books list at No. 1 over the weekend, where it remains this Sunday.
Besides shooting the fourth season of “Glee,” Mr. Colfer said he is at work on a sequel to “The Land of Stories,” several other screenplays and recently adapted the children’s book “The Little Leftover Witch” for the Disney Channel, which, for the moment has decided not to produce a pilot.
Sitting there with his Tintin quiff, all skinny and tall, digging into the chips and guac in an otherwise empty Mexican café in West Hollywood, Mr Chris Colfer looks perfectly calm on the face of it. But here’s the thing - he has no right to be. Because Mr Colfer has a lot more on his plate right now than tortilla chips.
“Yeah, by the end of next week - well, a bit after that - I have to write a novel,” he says, in his trademark high-pitched voice. “I haven’t started yet. I’m not even joking.”
He’s best known as the actor who plays Kurt Hummel, the gay countertenor inGlee, one of the most talked-about shows on television. When its creator Mr Ryan Murphy arranged for Kurt to be bullied at school, Mr Colfer’s portrayal was so rapturously received that he received a Golden Globe, was invited to the White House and declared one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world. That’s the Mr Chris Colfer that people know.
And yet, it turns out, the 22 year old is also this insanely prolific writer.
Chris Colfer is really impressive. No really, that isn’t just the Golden Globe or countless platinum records that he’s part of with the success of Glee. No, Chris isn’t just impressive because of that- it’s the fact that he’s actually a good writer as well (something that gains super cool points in my book). Ology sat down with Chris to discuss his film Struck By Lightning that premiered during the Tribeca Film Festival. His magnetism was instant; this kid is no diva (even though he totally could be).
ComingSoon.net is thrilled to have gotten the able aid of Jeremy Wein, host of This My Show, to help us cover this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, having met him when he won our Tribeca Film Festival contest last year.
Jeremy’s coverage begins with an exclusive interview with “Glee” star Chris Colfer who came to Tribeca with his first movie based on his own screenplay, a high school comedy called Struck By Lightning. Jeremy (who is the same age as Colfer!) got him to talk about that and upcoming episodes of “Glee,” his children’s book and even the next movie he’s writing!
