One of Cory Monteith's final two films will have its debut at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. Fest organizers announced on Wednesday that "All The Wrong Reasons," an ensemble drama which co-stars the late actor, will debut in Toronto.
Monteith, who died on July 13 in Vancouver, played a store manager in "All The Wrong Reasons," which focused on the lives of four people following a traumatic event.
"Cory saw the film a few weeks [before his death]," director Gia Milani said in an statement to EW.com. "He said he loved how layered it was and he thought it was intense. He loved Finn [his character on 'Glee'] and always talked about how blessed he felt to have been cast in 'Glee,' but like any artist, he wanted to play other roles too. I think he wanted to prove to himself he could do more. And he did prove it. When I last saw him at the screening, he looked super fit, had a lot of energy. I think that’s why this is such a tremendous shock. He seemed to be doing so well."
Kevin Zegers co-starred in the film with Monteith, and expressed his grief on Twitter following the actor's death:
I've never lost a friend this close. This feels like a mistake.
