(CBS/AP) “Glee” star Chris Colfer has created a children’s novel called “The Land of Stories” that is now in stores.
The 22-year-old’s initial book is about twins Connor and Alex, who find themselves sucked into their favorite book of angel tales, unexpected face-to-face with a characters they grew adult reading about.
Colfer pronounced he came adult with a thought as an scientific child who questioned a angel tales his mom would review to him.
“I used to ask, ‘Mommy, who’s a male in a mirror? Why’s he articulate to a immorality queen? Why’s she so evil? Why does she hatred Snow White so much?’
“I only attempted to explain a questions that we had as a kid,” he said.
If a book were blending into a film he would adore for Meryl Streep to play a several fairy-tale characters.
“I consider eventually we would adore to see Meryl Streep play each purpose only since we think. ‘Who would not wish to go see that movie? Who would not wish to go see Meryl Streep personification The Big Bad Wolf or Red Riding Hood?’ we meant it would be great.”
Colfer pronounced he wrote a book final summer during a “Glee” universe tour.
“I was essay constantly in my hotel room and underneath a theatre during performances even, and I’d be singing, ‘I Want to Hold Your Hand’ and I’d consider of something unequivocally smart for Connor to say. Had to run downstairs to a changing booth, form it into my computer, run off and do ‘Single Ladies’ in leotard. It was an engaging summer. we don’t consider I’ve mentally recovered from that time.”
There’s already a understanding to write a supplement to “The Land of Stories” in that Alex and Connor will be older.
He also has created a screenplay for a psychological play that he hopes to star in, and he’s blending a commander for a Disney Channel formed on Florence Laughlin’s children’s book “The Little Leftover Witch.”
A film he wrote and starred in, called “Struck by Lightning,” debuted during this year’s Tribeca Film Festival and will strike theaters in December.
