Monteith's film set for Toronto

Cory Monteith's new film All The Wrong Reasons will premiere at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.

Daniel Radcliffe's romantic comedy The F Word and Jake Gyllenhaal's Enemies will also have their world premieres in Toronto as part of the Canadian line-up.

Glee star Cory, who died from an alcohol and heroin overdose on July 13, plays an ambitious store manager in his big screen role, whose wife (Karine Vanasse) has to cope with a loss, in the drama by first-time filmmaker Gia Milani.

Former Harry Potter star Daniel, who will also be premiering Alexandre Aja's supernatural thriller Horns at the event, is tipped to step out on the red carpet alongside F Word co-stars Zoe Kazan and Girls' Adam Driver.

The comedy, directed by Michael Dowse, focuses on a young man, played by Daniel, who resigns himself to being "just friends" with a stranger (Zoe) when he discovers she lives with her long-term boyfriend (Adam).

In Denis Villeneuve's Enemies, the big-screen adaptation of Jose Saramago's book The Double, Jake stars as a man with dual personalities torn between his mistress and his wife.

The festival's programmer Steve Gravestock said: "The scope of this year's feature films is as broad as Canada's filmmaking community and demonstrates the deep versatility of our filmmakers. From clever, biting satire to intimate social commentary, powerful dramas and even a truly magical comedy, the settings and themes vary, but the perspectives are always uniquely Canadian."

The Toronto International Film Festival, now in its 38th year, runs from September 5 to 15.
