One of the most buzzed-about films that will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival next month is Josh C. Waller‘s McCanick, which features recently deceased Glee star Cory Monteith in one of his last roles. Monteith plays a drug addict who took a secret with him about Detective Eugene McCanick (David Morse) when he was locked up. Now that he’s back on the streets, McCanick is overcome with paranoia and will do anything to stop the information from being exposed by the man he helped put away.

The role is especially poignant because Monteith died from a heroin overdose after a lifetime stuggle with substance abuse and addiction. But morbid fascination aside, he seems to be holding his own in a genre that strays far, far away from his usual fare of “sing about our feelings” – which was his intention. Monteith was 31, and couldn’t keep playing a teenager forever. As for Morse, playing a deranged, paranoid cop sure does look like fun. Check out the latest trailer after the break.

McCanick also stars Mike Vogel, Rachel Nichols, Ciaran Hinds, Aaron Yoo, and Tracie Thoms.
