Corey Feldman's much-anticipated exposé on a pedophilia ring in Hollywood is just weeks away from its release. The actor, however, had a hard time finding distributors  for his documentary '(My) Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys.' The musician and one-time teen idol revealed he had also approached Netflix for his film, but the streaming giant turned him down because they were too "scared" to show it. 

Feldman, a longtime children's rights crusader in Hollywood, has vowed to make some big revelations linked to Hollywood insiders responsible for his and his late friend actor Corey Haim's sexual abuse when they were child actors in the industry. Feldman's film, set to debut on March 9, will only be aired once as the actor wants the world to see the film uncensored. 

Feldman, while talking about his film, said he is not attempting to profit from the endeavor and that he nearly did not go through with it. Citing Netflix's position on the documentary, he added that the streaming platform felt that the film's contents were too dangerous to be associated with. 

After nearly a decade of finding ways to get the truth out, Feldman decided to use his own money in the past three years to finance a film so that he could tell his story exactly the way he intended to -- without any censorship.

"I had to do this because I'm making a documentary that is the most important work that I've ever done, which is chronicling the abuse, the sexual abuse... of children in the industry," Feldman said of his upcoming film. 

The actor claimed that his friend Haim's sexual abuser is a famous personality in the entertainment industry. He has not yet revealed what particular line of work the celebrity is involved in out of fear of his life. Feldman, however, has claimed his film documents the name of the abuser and all the evidence to back his claims. "I'm doing this so Corey can finally Rest In Peace," the actor said.

Haim and Feldman first opened up about the sexual abuse they endured in the entertainment industry in a 2007 show called 'The 2 Corey's Haim & Feldman'. Feldman, shortly after the show's finale, made a promise off-camera that if Haim were to die first, he would find a way to get his story out and would try to bring their abusers to justice. Feldman, in an attempt to honor the promise, wrote a book called 'Coreyography.' It became a New York Times Best Seller, however, the publisher demanded the names in the book be changed to protect the alleged abusers. 

Feldman's documentary, however, promises to be a tell-all.  Directed by Brian Herzlinger, the film will include first time interviews of many people who grew up with the two Coreys and witnessed the pain and pressure they endured in the industry. The film features interviews with co-stars Keith Coogan, Jamison Newlander, Susie Feldman, and the late Kristoff St. John in his final words, speaking openly about child abuse in Hollywood. The film also includes a rare interview with former Disney TV Star Ricky Garcia who recently filed charges against his manager and his former agent from APA in Hollywood.
