Cory Monteith worked on McCanick, a crime drama where he plays a recovering drug addict pulled back into a life of crime, prior to his premature death this July, and now ETonline has a new trailer from McCanick, which will premiere at this year's Toronto International Film Festival.
Sporting long, unkept locks, early word on Monteith's performance as Simon Weeks is incredibly positive, with many saying the role could have broken him out in a big way.
Check out the synopsis for McCanick:
When narcotics detective Eugene "Mack" McCanick (David Morse) discovers that a seemingly harmless young criminal, Simon Weeks (Cory Monteith), has been released from prison, it triggers a firestorm of paranoia and violence. Unbeknownst to the chief of police (Ciaran Hinds), Mack and his partner, Floyd (Mike Vogel) mercilessly hunt down Weeks for unknown reasons over the course of one long, hot day. The closer Mack gets to his prey, the more we understand that his frenzy stems from a truth from the past, which only Weeks can expose.
