A second Cory Monteith pic will play the 2013 Toronto Film Festival, organizers revealed today while announcing their World Cinema lineup. The late Glee star, who died from a drug overdose last month, plays a drug-addicted criminal who’s released from prison only to be hunted down by a police chief over the course of a day in McCanick. In one of his final roles Monteith stars opposite David Morse, Ciaran Hinds, and Mike Vogel. The film is directed by Josh C. Waller and produced by Waller, Morse, and Ehud Bleiberg. Nicholas Donnermeyer, Donald Kugelman and Daniel Noah are exec producers. McCanick will have its world premiere at the festival September 9; another of Monteith’s last films, Gia Milani’s Canadian entry All The Wrong Reasons, is world-premiering in the fest’s Discovery program.
