Myriad Pictures released two photos of the deceased star from the independent drama
Indie movie company Myriad Pictures released two new stills of Cory Monteith from its film "All the Wrong Reasons" on Tuesday, along with a statement about the actor's death.
Said Myriad President Kirk D’Amico: “We were extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Cory. He was incredibly talented and giving to everyone he worked with. It is truly tragic to see his life and career cut so short. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends, and fans around the world.”
The Gia Milani-written and directed drama is an ensemble film about four everyday people: a store manager (Monteith), a security guard, a fire fighter and a clerk who struggle in the aftermath of trauma.
The "Glee" star was found dead Saturday in his Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel room in downtown Vancouver. He was 31.
On Tuesday, the BC Cornoners Office announced that Monteith died due to mixed drug toxicity involving heroin and alcohol. Monteith entered rehab on his own volition earlier in 2013.
Monteith checked into the Fairmont on July 6. According to the Vancouver Police Department, there were other people with Monteith in his hotel room on Friday night, but video and fob key entries indicate that he returned to his room by himself early Saturday morning.
