The 22-year-old actor wrote the film about high school senior Carson Phillips who was destined for bigger things than his close-minded small town could ever offer. He was on a path to greatness, but destiny had a different plan when he was suddenly killed by a bolt of lightning in his school parking lot.
“I hope it inspires aspiration. I think there are many different elements people can relate to,” Chris recently shared with press. “I think Carson is unique because he lives his life in the future and unfortunately the future hasn’t happened. Seeing the potential that he’s robbed of will make people see the potential in themselves.”
Struck by Lightning is out on January 11th.
