Corey Feldman Is Raising Money to Release a Film That Names Hollywood's Pedophiles
In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, a number of Hollywood's secrets have come to the surface but a great deal of them remain under wraps. Corey Feldman is hoping to shed some light on the industry's pedophilia problem with a new documentary, and he plans to name names.

Last week, Feldman launched an Indiegogo campaign for a new film, wherein he plans to expose Hollywood's pedophiles. He seeks to raise $10 million USD.

Feldman stopped by The Today Show to discuss the project with Matt Lauer. "It's not a documentary. It's a film. I want to make a feature film, which is why I need the budget," Feldman said. "It will be a very true story. We will have every name… we're talking about a theatrical release."

In 2013, Feldman released a memoir called Coreyography, where he detailed the sexual abuse he had experienced in Hollywood. At the time, however, his publishers would not allow him to name names.

Because of a statute of limitations, Feldman said that he'd be sued if he went to police in 2017. He added that he already told police the names of his abusers in 1993 when he was involved with an investigation of Michael Jackson's alleged pedophilia.

"Michael is innocent. That's what the interview was about with the police in 1993," Feldman added. "I told them, 'He is not that guy. … I know the difference between pedophiles and somebody who is not a pedophile because I've been molested. Here's the names. Go investigate.'"

Feldman continued, "There are thousands of people in Hollywood who have this same information. Why is it all on me? I'm the victim here. I'm the one who's been abused. I'm the one who's trying to come forward and do something about it. There are thousands of people out there who have this information."

Still, not everyone is siding with Feldman. Judy Haim, mother of Feldman's late co-star Corey Haim, thinks the actor is trying to raise funds related to a recent drug bust.

"He's been talking about revealing the names of his and other abusers for seven years, since my son died," she told The Hollywood Reporter. "Now he wants $10 million to do it? Come on. It's a long con. He's a scam artist. If he was serious about this, he'd share the information he has with the police."

Naturally, Judy's response prompted some replies from Feldman as well. Read his tweets about her comments below.
