A brand-new still from “McCanick,” which will premiere at the next Toronto International Film Festival, was just released. When narcotics detective Eugene “Mack” McCanick (David Morse, “16 Blocks,”The Green Mile”) discovers that a seemingly harmless young criminal, Simon Weeks (Monteith), has been released from prison, it triggers a firestorm of paranoia and violence.
Unbeknownst to the chief of police (Ciaran Hinds, “There Will Be Blood,” “Tinker Tailor Solider Spy”), Mack and his partner, Floyd (Mike Vogel, Under the Dome, “The Help”) hunt down Weeks for reasons only known to him 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.
This was Monteith’s last role before his untimely death last month.
