VIDEO: Final Trailer for MCCANICK, Featuring GLEE's Cory Monteith
McCanick, Cory Monteith
The second Cory Monteith-led film to make its world premiere at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, MCCANICK has just released its final trailer. Check it out below!
The cop drama from director Josh C. Waller joins previously announced Canadian indie 'All The Wrong Reasons', in which the late actor portrays a department store manager, at the festival.
In the crime drama MCCANICK, Monteith plays Simon Weeks, described as "a violent and drug-addicted street hustler." The film also stars David Morse as Eugene "Mack" McCanick, a detective who is in pursuit of his nemesis.
Last month, Waller shared his memories of Monteith with the L.A. Times, revealing that he initially had hesitations about casting Monteith in the role. "In my mind, I was envisioning a teeny little drug guy [for Weeks], but Cory Monteith is this tall, strapping man. But when I met with him, he wanted to do it so badly. He was very vocal about his past, and said he wanted to tap into things from his youth that he hadn't been able to use as an actor yet."
The Toronto International Film Festival is set to run from Sept. 5 to 15.
