TotalFilm cites Struck by Lightning at one of 50 Original Properties for 2012Saturday, January 14, 2012
19. Struck By Lighting:
The Film: Saved! director Brian Dannelly makes a welcome return to movies after spending the last eight years directing (quality) TV shows like Weeds, Pushing Daisies and The United States Of Tara.
It seems to have been worth the wait, as he’s assembled the likes of Christina Hendricks (Drive, Mad Men) and Dermot Mulroney for a tale about a man who dies after being hit by lightning.
If It Was Based On Something: It'd be a best-selling novel.
