Lifetime is bring A Tale of Two Coreys to small screens everywhere in 2018. The biopic will follow the infamous and tumultuous childhoods of 80s superstars Corey Haim and Corey Feldman, two actors who shared a first name and a special bond after first appearing together in the classic 1987 vampire movie The Lost Boys.
Corey 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. It will also look at their drug addictions, and personal struggles with abuse both physical and sexual. A number of different actors have been cast as the two former teen heartthrobs. Elijah Marcano is playing the teenage Corey Feldman, with Scott Bosely playing him as an adult. Justin Ellings will play the younger Corey Haim, with Casey Leach portraying the troubled youth in his adult years.
The pair became best friends at a young age, and weathered various highs and lows in the world of Hollywood moviemaking. The pair starred in a number of movies together that include the previously mentioned Lost Boys, as well as License to Drive and Dream a Little Dream. Though they decided to work alone heading into the 90s, they would reunite for a number of low budget, straight to video movies that proved to be, for the most part, somewhat embarrassing. The pair would reunite once again in 2004 for the short-lived reality series The Two Coreys, which lasted two seasons due to Haim's erratic behavior at the time. A third season was supposed to happen. But Haim ultimately passed away.
