    Corey Feldman Says His New Doc Will Identify Hollywood Men Who Sexually Abused Him as Child Star

    Corey Feldman says he will finally name his sexual abusers from when he was a child actor in a new documentary he’s releasing called “(My) Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys.”Feldman will use the real names of the people he says abused him when he was a young actor, something he did not do when he published his 2013 memoir and revealed that he had been abused. And Feldman will also reveal who he believes abused his frequent co-star Corey Haim, who died in 2010 of pneumonia.“The last two years have been insurmountable, but I believe that with great risk comes great reward,” Feldman said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “And I believe the reward in all of this, if nothing else, will be that these guys are finally exposed. I’m hoping that what happened to [Harvey] Weinstein [will happen], that multiple victims will come forward. And as a result, these guys will finally get indictments and we can put them out of business.”Also Read: Corey Feldman 'Can No Longer' Defend Michael Jackson After 'Leaving Neverland' (Video)Feldman is working to start a movement known as KidsToo to call attention to the abuse of children, especially in entertainment, and he’s a supporter of California’s Assembly Bill 218, which grants victims of childhood abuse more time to report cases and was signed into law by governor Gavin Newsom in October.“And we’re hoping it kind of clears the pathway for more justice and for more voices to be heard, because this is really about enabling the voice of the survivor and empowering the survivor and turning the tables. All of these years, it’s been about protecting the bad guys, and that’s the way the laws were written, unfortunately,” Feldman said. “This law sets me up for the opportunity to go after these guys, but it also sets up anybody else who has been a victim of sexual assault from any abuser in the state of California in the last 50 years,” Feldman says. “I watched what happened with the other cases, obviously I’ve been following everything very closely.”Feldman in the interview also took a swipe at “Leaving Neverland,” the HBO documentary featuring two men who accused Michael Jackson of sexual abuse when they were both children. Feldman said that documentary came across as “one-sided,” and he hopes that “(My) Truth,” which he made along with director Brian Herzlinger, provides more evidence of his claims.Also Read: Harvey Weinstein Juror Says Annabella Sciorra's Testimony Was 'Convincing to a Lot of the Jurors' (Video)“What we did is line up several witnesses who had all heard firsthand from the victim himself,” Feldman said. “We think we’ve done a really good job of being even-handed in showing what the argument is and what both sides have to say, but also showing the weaknesses in their argument.”Feldman is hopeful that the documentary can change the perception people have of him and also help spur a larger conversation.“I hope that people can finally go back and appreciate my work as an actor,” Feldman said. “That would be nice if people would start recognizing me as a real actor as opposed to this kind of joke that people have made my name into for the last few decades.”He continued: “We’ll see if any of this works. Look, there’s a distinct possibility that none of this works and that people can continue just trashing my name and abusing me and saying I’m just a terrible guy…But I don’t think so, because I think we’ve really started a movement here. That’s what makes me proud. That’s what makes me feel like I’ve actually accomplished something in my life.”“(My) Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys,” will air as a pay-per-view documentary on March 9 and 10 only via the film’s website.

    ‘1917’ Named Top Film at Producers Guild Awards

    “1917” has won the Producers Guild of America’s award as the best-produced feature film of 2019, giving it an important victory at an awards show that usually honors the film that goes on to win the Oscar for Best Picture.The film, an immersive drama about World War I that was fashioned to look like a single shot, triumphed in a field that also included top Academy Award contenders “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood,” “The Irishman,” “Parasite” and “Joker.” While the PGA win makes it a de facto frontrunner of sorts in that race, this is a year in which the Oscar race still feels unsettled.“Apollo 11” won the award for documentary feature, while “Toy Story 4” won for animated feature.Also Read: '1917': How Sam Mendes & Co. Re-Created World War I in a Single TakeTelevision winners included “Succession,” “Fleabag,” “Chernobyl,” “Apollo: Missions to the Moon” and “Leaving Neverland.”As the only other major award to use the same ranked-choice voting system as the Academy to determine its top film prize, the Producers Guild Awards are one of the most reliable predictors of Oscar success. The PGA winner has gone on to win the Best Picture Oscar 21 times in 30 years, and eight times in the 10 years since both groups expanded to 10 nominees and instituted ranked-choice voting.But in one of those eight years, the Oscar winner, “12 Years a Slave,” tied with “Gravity” at the PGA – and in 2015 and 2016, the guild went for “The Big Short” and “La La Land” while the Oscars chose “Spotlight” and “Moonlight.”So while the win gives “1917” some valuable momentum in what has seemed to be a wide-open year, the compressed schedule leaves less time for any momentum to take hold before Oscar voting begins on Jan. 30 (but also less time to momentum to change). The film is not nominated for any Screen Actors Guild Awards, which will be handed out on Sunday.Also Read: Taika Waititi Joins Scorsese, Tarantino, Mendes and Bong With Directors Guild Nomination for 'Jojo Rabbit'Special awards were given to Netflix’s Ted Sarandos (Milestone Award), Plan B’s Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner (David O.
