For those who may not know, "Glee" star Cory Monteith passed away last month due to a drug overdose following a stint in rehab. However, the actor still has two big screen performances (in addition to another "Glee" film concert at Radio City Music Hall) on the way. One is in a film called All the Wrong Reasons premiering at TIFF, and the other is called McCanick, and the trailer has just arrived online. Monteith takes the lead in the film as a drug addicted criminal whose release from prison triggers paranoia and violence in detective Eugene McCanick (David Morse), who has a secret in his past only Weeks can expose.
Here's the first trailer for Josh C. Waller's McCanick originally from Deadline:
McCanick is directed by Josh C. Waller (Raze) and written by Daniel Noah. In the film, a hothead cop (David Morse) learns a young man (Cory Monteith) he helped put away seven years ago is back out on the streets — and carries with him an uncomfortable secret. Ciaran Hinds, Mike Vogel, Rachel Nichols, Trevor Morgan, Aaron Yoo, and Tracie Thoms also star in the film which will premiere at TIFF next month. Good?
