Cory Monteith’s final film McCanick will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) next month and it showcases a new side of the late Glee star.

In the film, Monteith plays a drug addict who was just released from jail. It also stars David Morse as the police officer who first put Monteith’s character behind bars and the two share a dark secret.

Watch the trailer below:

Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room on July 13. A coroner’s report found he died from the combined effects of heroin and alcohol. He was 31.

McCanick is one of two of Monteith’s films that will premier at TIFF.  All the Wrong Reasons, directed by Gia Milani and shot in Halifax in 2012, will also debut. The independent movie stars Monteith as the manager of a big box store coping, alongside other employees, with a traumatic incident.
