Cory Monteith's flick All The Wrong Reasons will have a world premiere
Cory Monteith’s final film, All The Wrong Reasons, will debut at the 38th Toronto Film Festival in September, it has been revealed.
The flick will join movies starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Daniel Radcliffe and Hugh Jackman on the international event’s line-up.
According to movie website Deadline, Cory’s ensemble drama stint tells the story of a store manager whose wife struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder brought on by a family tragedy.
Director Gia Milani revealed that the actor saw the film just weeks before his death, and ‘loved’ the result.
‘Cory saw the film a few weeks [before his death],’ she said in a 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.’
Yesterday, Lea Michele shared a photo of her first day back at work on the Glee set, as she prepares to film a tribute episode after Cory Monteith’s tragic death.
Taking to Twitter as she prepared to step back into Rachel Berry’s shoes, the actress shared a forlorn photo of her first day filming.
The snap shows Lea sitting at the end of the bed in an empty room. It was captioned: ‘Feels so good to be home… #GleeSeason5’.
As the rest of the cast returned to begin work on the delayed Glee Series 5, a source close to the show told Hollywood life the feel on set was ‘very somber,’ but added: ‘everyone is happy to be with one another.’
It’s thought there were grief counsellors on hand during the day.
