Variety.com released an article about Cory’s new action drama movie ‘McCanick’ where he will play the role of a young criminal. Very different and exciting. Can’t wait to hear more about this new project!
David Morse, Brandon Routh and “Glee” thesp Cory Monteith are set to star in Bleiberg Entertainment’s action drama “McCanick,” which Josh C. Waller (“Raze”) will direct from a script by Daniel Noah (“Believers”).
Morse will star as narcotics detective Eugene “Mack” McCanick, who gets caught up in a firestorm of paranoia and violence upon learning that a seemingly harmless young criminal (Monteith) has been released from prison. Over the course of one long, hot day, Mack and his partner (Routh) mercilessly hunt down the perp, who holds the secret to a truth from Mack’s past.
Harkening back to classic cop films from the ’70s such “The French Connection” and “Serpico,” pic aims to be a rich character study featuring rousing action as it depicts a battle for one cop’s soul.
Bleiberg Entertainment CEO Ehud Bleiberg (“The Iceman”) will produce with Waller and Morse, while Nicholas Donnermeyer will exec produce with Noah. Bleiberg Entertainment will handle worldwide sales on the pic, which shoots in September in Philadelphia.
