“Glee” star Chris Colfer’s bestselling book series “The Land of Stories” is set to hit the big screen – the actor is in talks with major movie executives about turning the tales into a new film.

The 24-year-old tells “Access Hollywood Live” he always vowed not to consider movie deals connected to his young adult books, but now he’s reconsidering.

Colfer says, “I’m starting to have those film conversations. I’m a little more open-minded to it. When I first started the series, I was completely against doing a movie… I always said I would rather it be a good book that a hundred people read, than an awful movie which a thousand people see.

“But the readers want to see the world come alive so much. Who am I to deny them of that?”
