Corey Feldman has been a staple of Hollywood since the 80’s. He burst on the screen a child actor, starring in dozens of commercials and later gaining fame with hits such as Stand By Me, The Gremlins, Goonies, and The Lost Boys.

He and Corey Haim became known as ‘The Two Corey’s’ and became Hollywood heartthrobs. Even starring together in License to Drive. Unfortunately, due to whatever derailments Feldman’s career softened. But, we have the biopic casting idea of the year to recharge Corey’s career. A project which could make help make a serious comeback for Corey Feldman.

Corey Feldman MUST play Roy Orbison in a biopic. Orbison is best known for his hit song, ‘Pretty Woman’. The song was so popular it inspired a film, starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. Well, maybe the song may not have inspired the film, but it was readily played in the film.

Orbison died at the age of 52. Feldman is 48 and has an uncanny to Orbison, not just to Skrillex. There is a screenplay in The Blacklist about Roy Orbison. The only actor who should play him in a biopic is a Corey Feldman. In fact we are in touch with several producers to get this film greenlit. It will be easy to produce this film and Feldman must be cast in it.
