Actor Corey Feldman is continuing his campaign to expose what he says is a ring of pedophilia in Hollywood. The actor plans to make a feature film on the subject. Feldman is attempting to use crowd funding as a source to get his film off the ground. In speaking with Matt Lauer on Today, Feldman explained his reasoning for making a film and not just coming out with the names.
“It’s not a documentary. It’s a film. I want to make a feature film, which is why I need the budget. It will be a very true story. We will have every name … we’re talking about a theatrical release.”
I am not sure why Feldman would name names in the film, and not just come out and say them. I am no lawyer but it seems as if the legal ramifications would be the same — though perhaps he’s waiting for the money to come in for the doc so he can have ammunition to defend himself in court. Lauer also asked Feldman why he simply does not go to the police. Below is Feldman’s response.
“I’ve told the police. In fact, if anybody wants to go back to 1993 when I was interviewed by the Santa Barbara Police Department, I sat there and I gave them the names. They’re on record. They have all of this information, but they were scanning Michael Jackson. All they cared about was trying to find something on Michael Jackson. Michael is innocent. That’s what the interview was about with the police in 1993. … I told them, ‘He is not that guy. … I know the difference between pedophiles and somebody who is not a pedophile because I’ve been molested. Here’s the names. Go investigate.’”
Every attempt by Feldman to expose those he alleges as criminals, gets thwarted. I, like many others, have heard Feldman’s claims for years, but now it seems as if he is making one last push to bring what he thinks is justice. With accusations of sexual misconduct going around Hollywood, it seems there is no better time for Feldman’s plight.
