Tonight, Lifetime will air their latest biopic, A Tale of Two Coreys, which examines the impact of fame and show business on teen heartthrobs Corey Feldman and Corey Haim in the 80s.
Although Feldman doesn’t appear in the movie, he did come on board as an executive producer. In the words of IMDB, “Feldman is helping to oversee the project, and has given his insight into some of the shadier things that went down on various movie sets and at parties attended to by Haim and Feldman.” Corey Haim passed away in 2010 of pneumonia.
The movie transitions from the Coreys as teens to the Coreys as adults, with two sets of actors playing the roles.
