Wish come true: Colfer will not only write the script adapting ‘The Wishing Spell,’ the first book of the best-selling series, but will direct the movie.

Twentieth Century Fox and Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps are teaming up with Chris Colfer to adapt actor-turned-author’s best-selling fantasy series The Land of Stories for the big-screen.

Fox has picked up the rights to the book series with 21 Laps’s Levy and Dan Levine on board to produce.

In a striking move, the 27-year-old Colfer will not only write the script adapting The Wishing Spell, the first book of the multi-million copy-selling series, but will also make his directorial debut by sitting behind the camera.

Launched with Wishing Spell in 2012, when Colfer was in the middle of his six season award-winning turn on Glee, the Land of Stories universe has grown to include novels, illustrated picture books, audiobooks, in-world chapter books, and an upcoming graphic novel. The sixth and final novel in the series, Worlds Collide, will be published July 11, with Colfer embarking on a twenty-city author tour celebrating the series’ finale.

Wishing Spell follows twins Alex and Conner Bailey who, after the loss of their father, are transported into a magic book in which the classic fairy tales have come to life. Thrust into a world where they come face-to-face with the characters they’ve only read about in stories, the kids must fight dark forces in order to return home.

Colfer and Rob Weisbach will executive produce. Fox’s Kira Goldberg will oversee development for the studio.

21 Laps, which is flying high thanks to the eight Oscar nominations and hit status of its sci-fi drama Arrival, is currently in production on season 2 of their its pop culture-making Netflix series Stranger Things. It is also in post on Fox’s adaptation of the Alexandra Bracken novel The Darkest Minds, and has Jonathan Tropper-penned drama Kodachrome, starring Ed Harris and Jason Sudeikis, in the can.

Colfer first made a name for himself playing Kurt Hummel on the ground-breaking Glee, a role that garnered him a Golden Globe award and multiple People’s Choice Awards and Emmy nominations. It was as the show was ending that his career as an author began taking off, with the Land of Stories books becoming New York Times best-sellers (Wishing Spell was number one for two weeks) and translated into twenty languages.

Colfer has worked as a screenwriter before, penning the 2014 Glee episode Old Dog, New Tricks, and the 2012 original movie Struck by Lightning, in which he also starred. He is repped by ICM Partners, Rob Weisbach Creative Management and Myman Greenspan.
