The trailer for "McCannick," starring Chestnut Hill's David Morse, Warmnister's Mike Vogel ("Under the Dome") and "Glee" star Cory Monteith, who died last month from a combination of heroin and alcohol hit the internet today.

The film, shot last year, is clearly features Philadelphia prominently. Morse plays a cop on the hunt for hustler and drug addict Simon Weeks (Monteith).

Director Josh C. Waller fondly remembered his time in Philadelphia with Monteith shortly after the star's death. Monteith would run through the streets of Philadelphia and SEPTA tunnels for two or three days before heading back on red eye to L.A. to shoot "Glee" week after week.

"[The film] connected us all with this childhood side of ourselves because you're like, 'I'm only doing it for the art, not for the money,' " Waller told me last month.

"McCannick," which did not have distribution when I talked to Waller last month, will now get its premiere at the acclaimed Toronto International Film Festival, generally thought of as the launching pad for many Best Picture nomineess.
