Taking to Instagram, McCarthy posted an image with Moore by his side and added a frame of them from the classic '80s movie next to it. "So great to see (for the first time in years and years) my St Elmo’s Fire co-star, the wondrous Demi Moore, and catch up for my Brat Pack documentary," he wrote in the caption.
'St Elmo's Fire'
'St Elmo's Fire' was released in 1985 and went on to become a cult classic. The film starred Demi's then-boyfriend, Emilio Estevez, as well as Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, and Rob Lowe. The cast also included model-turned-actress Andie MacDowell and renowned stage actress Mare Winningham. Moore portrayed a privileged young woman who becomes distracted by drugs and heartbreak. The coming-of-age movie was co-written and directed by Joel Schumacher.
'Brat: An '80s Story'
In 2021, McCarthy revealed he was working on a documentary about the 'Brat Pack' movies based on his memoir 'Brat: An '80s Story'. The documentary version will follow the actor as he catches up with other Brat Pack members to discuss their experiences working on their classic films. McCarthy is best known for starring in '80s hit movies such as 'Pretty In Pink' and 'Less Than Zero'.
According to publishers, 'Brat: An '80s Story' is "a revealing look at coming of age in a maelstrom, reckoning with conflicted ambition, innocence, addiction, and masculinity." Meanwhile, the author said in a statement, "For years people have asked me, on a near daily basis, 'What was it like 'back in the day?' Routinely, I'd offer up any number of stock responses. Finally, I thought, 'Let's take a hard look under that rock.' What I found surprised me, at times scared me, and finally made sense of a lot of seemingly disparate parts of my life."
The term 'Brat Pack' was popularized by an unflattering New York magazine story that ran in 1985 and portrayed a group of young actors as shallow and self-absorbed, according to the Daily Mail. McCarthy has previously disputed he was part of any such group. In 1999, he told People magazine that he hadn't seen any of his famous co-stars since working on 'St Elmo's Fire'. The veteran actor has appeared in dozens of films and TV shows over the past three decades and starred in the acclaimed play 'Side Man'. Furthermore, he has also penned a travel memoir that author Cheryl Strayed described as a "good book about a good man."
McCarthy has also dabbed in directing, having helmed episodes of 'Orange Is The New Black' and 'Gossip Girl' among other shows. He has also been candid about his past struggles with drinking, which he started at age 12 and ultimately got sober in 1992. According to Grand Central, McCarthy will cover everything from "scoring loose joints in Washington Square Park" to "Hollywood with John Hughes and an iconic cast of characters," adding, "Brat is a surprising and intimate story of an outsider caught up in a most unwitting success."
