'A Tale of Two Coreys': Corey Haim and Corey Feldman Are Getting a Lifetime Biopic
From Slashfilm - October 11, 2017

Lifetime biopics have become a dime a dozenespeciallythosesaturatedin 80sor 90s nostalgia. But rarely do they tackle such a heavy topic as that of Corey Haim and Corey Feldman, and with the blessing of Feldman, no less.

A Tale of Two Coreys will follow the dark and troubledlives of 80schild stars andbest friends Haim and Feldman, whose struggles with drug addiction and sexual abuse became one of Hollywoods more ominous cautionary tales. Haim lost his life at age 38 after decades of drug abuse,which reportedly stemmed from being raped at 11.

Haim and Feldman were rising stars when they starred inThe Lost Boys together. The teen vampire movie shot both of them to fame and started a lifelong partnership and friendship, with the duo following up with 80s hits likeLicense to DriveandDream a Little Dream. However, their lives soon descended into infamy, plagued by many of the issues that child stars face: drugs, parties, rehab. The two of them separately went on to star in a string of direct-to-video and low-budget movies in the 90s, before reuniting in 2004 for ashort-lived reality seriesThe Two Coreys.However, the series wasput on hold due to Haims erratic on-set behavior. Shortly after the second season, Haim passed away.

In an interview with Yahoo, Feldman offered more information on the upcoming Lifetime biopic about him and Corey Haim (via MovieWeb):

This is why my hands are tied. We actually have a Lifetime movie coming out that is about the two Coreys. Which I helped produce. To help lend some stuff to the story as well. I wouldnt say Im the writer or director. It was done with some friends of mine. And I helped with some stuff so that it didnt stray too far from the truth. That is coming out, and I have given my commitment and my word to Coreys mother that I steer away from conversations that are about him.
