The story of how 80s child actors Corey Feldman and Corey Haim became the best of friends is the subject of a new Lifetime original movie, which is also delving into their dark, abusive childhood experience in Hollywood.

Executive produced by Feldman himself, "A Tale of Two Coreys" is a tell-all biopic and cautionary tale about two teen heartthrobs who form a brotherly friendship while growing up in the harsh celebrity spotlight -- and who both secretly become the victims of repugnant Hollywood predators.

Directed by indie filmmaker Steven Huffaker (Love in Moreno Valley), the Lifetime movie stars Elijah Marcano (The Walking Dead) as a teenage Feldman and Justin Ellings (CSI, The Mick) as a teenage Haim while Ashley Scott (UnREAL, Jericho) plays Feldman's abusive, drug-addicted mother, Sheila.

"A Tale of Two Coreys" is set to premiere on Saturday, January 6th on Lifetime.

Corey Feldman (Elijah Marcano and Scott Bosely) and Corey Haim (Justin Ellings and Casey Leach) skyrocketed to fame after meeting on the set of the blockbuster movie The Lost Boys and quickly became young Hollywood heartthrobs. They collaborated on popular comedies including License to Drive and Dream a Little Dream and basked in being Tinseltown royalty in their early teens. But as their stars rose, their lives began to quickly spin out of control with endless partying and drugs. As their fame and fortune increased, dark secrets haunted them. Young and impressionable, the actors suffered through years of sexual abuse at the hands of industry insiders. With studio offers drying up and their reputations becoming tabloid fodder, Feldman eventually turned his life around by getting sober, getting married and having a son. Haim, however, continued his downward spiral and by the time the two starred in their own reality series, The Two Coreys, not even Feldman was able to save him.
