Actor Corey Feldman has launched a fundraising drive for a documentary he claims will spotlight a network of Hollywood pedophiles.

Recent revelations in a New York Times exposé against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein appears to have motivated one of the ‘80s biggest child celebrities to bring his story of sexual abuse to the big screen. A YouTube video posted Wednesday by Mr. Feldman, who starred in such hits as “Stand by Me” and “The Goonies,” outlined a plan to “bring down potentially a pedophile ring that I’ve been aware of since I was a child.”

“What I’m proposing is a plan that I believe can literally change the entertainment system as we know it,” Mr. Feldman said. “I’ve been living in fear and living with this my entire life. As most victims have, I’ve been made to feel awkward, misunderstood and I’ve been degraded at great levels.”

The 46-year-old actor has maintained for years that he industry peer Corey Haim were abused in the 1980s by powerful Hollywood men who are still active within the industry.

“I am using this to draw a line in the sand, to say to the Hollywood community, we are better than this,” he added. “I know that we can stand together as one, we can be united and we can create an affront. Those good people out there, there’s plenty of them, they’ve helped me over the years. You guys can take my side and we can stand together. … Our children are the most sacred things we have.” 

The actor’s wife, Courtney Anne Mitchell, created an Indiegogo fundraising account with the goal of raising $10 million for the project.

“This is much bigger than raising finance for a film. This is about the balance of Good and Evil in very real terms,” she wrote. “Corey and I fear for our safety, and we need protection to get this truth out.”

The couple plans to oversee the film’s production, editing, marketing and distribution on their own.
