Hollywood actor Corey Feldman has been promising a major announcement for the past several weeks, and he finally delivered on his promise. The much-anticipated documentary that he has been working on about the sexual abuse he and his friend late actor Corey Haim experienced as child stars finally has a release date.
Called My Truth: The Rape of Two Coreys, the long-in-the-works film will be premiering on March 9, 2020 -- the tenth anniversary of the death of Corey Haim, who died of pneumonia in 2010. Feldman has yet to reveal how fans will be able to view the film, as it reportedly will not be shown in movie theaters. However, the actor says tickets will go on sale on February 22, 2020.
Extra reports that My Truth: The Rape of Two Coreys, directed by Brian Herzlinger, will feature interviews with Feldman and Haim's costars and friends, including Keith Coogan, Jamison Newlander, and the late Kristoff St. John (ex-Neil Winters, The Young and the Restless), the latter of whom starred with Feldman in the 1979 series The Bad News Bears.
As news of Feldman's forthcoming documentary began to circulate, Extra released its movie poster, which includes rolled-up posters from some of Haim and Feldman's films. The titles include License to Drive, Dream a Little Dream, Dream a Little Dream 2, and Last Resort. In front of the posters is a white box of money tied with a bow, sitting in a puddle of blood against the backdrop of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Feldman also released the poster via Twitter.
Feldman -- famous for films such as The Goonies, The Lost Boys, and Stand by Me -- has been promising for years that he would expose the Hollywood pedophiles responsible for some of the abuse that he claims he and Haim suffered while they were child stars. In a video posted to social media, he revealed that he and his wife Courtney Anne Feldman recently had to hire 24-hour security, as accusing powerful people of such shocking crimes means that he is living in fear for his life.
"There are things you have to do for insurance reasons when you're putting out something like this," he says in the video. "This is very, very dangerous stuff, and it's very risky stuff."

There have reportedly been two attempts on Feldman's life in recent months, but the actor is forging ahead with the documentary, saying he is honoring a promise he made to Corey Haim that he would tell his story.
Feldman and Kristoff St. John became friends after they both starred on the late 1970s television series The Bad News Bears, based on the 1976 film of the same name. St. John went on to become famous for his 1991 to 2019 role of Neil Winters on The Young and the Restless. He died of heart disease on February 3, 2019. Earlier this week, Y&R marked the one-year anniversary of his death on Twitter, writing, "Today and every day we remember the man behind Neil Winters. Kristoff St. John is a greatly missed member of the #YR family who will always be in our hearts."
Feldman's connection to the daytime world extends beyond his long-lasting friendship with St. John. He was also married to General Hospital actress Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda Barrett) from 1989 to 1993.
