The film is based on the true story of the rise and fall of iconic 80s actors Corey Feldman and Corey Haim, with Feldman as executive producer. It will premiere on January 6 at 8 p.m. ET / PT on Lifetime. Watch the previous trailer.
Feldman (Elijah Marcano and Scott Bosely) and Haim (Justin Ellings and Casey Leach) shot to fame after working together on the hit movie "The Lost Boys" and quickly became Hollywood's young heroes. He collaborated in popular comedies such as "License to Drive" and "Dream a Little Dream" and delighted to be Hollywood royalty in his early teenage years.
But as their stars increased, their lives quickly began to lose control with endless parties and drugs. As their fame and fortune increased, dark secrets pursued them. Young and impressionable, the actors suffered during years of sexual abuse at the hands of industry experts. As the studio offerings are drying up and his reputation is turning into tabloid meat, Feldman eventually changed his life by becoming sober, getting married and having a child. Tragically, Haim's attempt to return to Hollywood ended abruptly when he died suddenly in 2010.
"A Tale of Two Coreys" is produced by the executive produced by Feldman, Phil Shapiro, Jeffrey Schenck and Barry Barnholtz. Steven Huffaker directed the story of Feldman, Schenck, Peter Sullivan, Hanz Wasserburger and Tejal Desai. The script is by Sullivan, Wasserburger and Jessica Dube.
Feldman has reappeared in the news lately due to the recent wave of sexual harassment and assault accusations that have shaken Hollywood. He has repeatedly stated that both he and Haim were victims of sexual abuse in his youth, and recently launched a campaign last month to fund a documentary that would expose alleged pedophiles in Hollywood.
