“I guarantee you that there were other kids that had these experiences. They need to stand up and use their voice,” he explains. “There are producers that know about things that happened on their sets, or agents who know things about their clients, and actresses and actors themselves—it’s time to use our voices.”
With an intimate TV movie about the sexual abuse he experienced as a child actor set to premiere on Jan. 6 on Lifetime, Corey Feldman is hoping to raise awareness about what he and his late best friend, Corey Haim, experienced as young movie stars at the mercy of powerful entertainment executives.
The 46-year-old has been outspoken about the trauma he and Haim faced during their rise as heartthrobs in the late 1980s, penning a 2013 memoir, Coreyography, and helping to produce the Lifetime movie, A Tale of Two Coreys. But Feldman says there is still more to the story, and he is currently raising money to fund his own documentary to shed light on alleged sexual abusers in Hollywood.
“People are finally listening and there’s a movement happening,” Feldman tells PEOPLE. “This is your chance for redemption, but also a chance to have justice served not only for Corey and I, but for the rest of the world. There are still kids out there who are being victimized.”
