Cory Monteith's 'McCanick' finds a distributor in Toronto


McCanick, Cory Monteith’s final film before his death in July, has found a distributor after premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday. Well Go USA acquired all U.S. distribution rights and plans to release the film theatrically in early 2014.

Monteith stars as Simon Weeks, a drug-addicted young criminal whose release from prison leads to violence and paranoia as narcotics detective Eugene “Mack” McCanick (David Morse) races to piece together Weeks’ story.

The police drama also stars Ciaran Hinds and Mike Vogel. Check out the trailer below:

One of Cory Monteith’s last two movies, McCanick, will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival on Sept. 9, the festival announced today.

Director Josh C. Waller previously told EW, “The character he plays is this drug-addicted street hustler, and he was wanting to tap into things from his youth — which he’s been very open about publicly. I think he saw the role as an opportunity for catharsis.”

The plot centers on narcotics detective Eugene “Mack” McCanick (David Morse, 16 Blocks,The Green Mile) who discovers a seemingly harmless young criminal, Simon Weeks (Monteith) has been released from prison. This triggers “a firestorm of paranoia and violence. Unbeknownst to the chief of police (Ciaran Hinds, There Will Be Blood), Mack and his partner, Floyd (Mike Vogel, Under the Dome,) 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.”

In addition to McCanick, Monteith’s other final movie, All the Wrong Reasons, will also premiere at Toronto.
