  It's not going away!

There could be more revelations of child molestation if Corey Feldman has his way.

 The Goonies actor, who claims a paedophile ring molested him and other child stars, is trying to raise $10 million to make a movie about it in which he promises to name names.

 Feldman has talked for years about being a victim of pedophiles in Hollywood, but after during an appearance on the Dr. Oz show he was encouraged to make a formal report to police. Feldman has long contended that investigators failed to look into the allegations over the decades.

 In his 2013 autobiography, Feldman talked about being molested as a child actor. He also claimed his friend, the late Corey Haim, was also molested as a child. He has become more outspoken in recent weeks in light of sexual harassment and abuse allegations made against celebrities such as Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.

 Feldman, now 46, is trying to generate funding for the movie he wants to produce about paedophilia in Hollywood, a film that would expose alleged offenders. He has said he gave the LAPD specific names, but he has not identified any alleged offenders publicly.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department the allegations are beyond the statute of limitations.

The LAPD issued a statement saying the agency is "committed to protecting victims of sexual assault and will thoroughly investigate any report of a sex-related crime."

  "In the case of Corey Feldman, unfortunately according to California law the alleged occurrence is out of statute and Robbery Homicide detectives have no other avenues to pursue this case," according to the LAPD. "However, the LAPD applauds Mr. Feldman for coming forward, as an out-of-statute assault report could potentially bolster any current and forthcoming case as it creates a pattern of behavior.

 "The latest rash of sexual assault reports are particularly troubling and the LAPD encourages and will gladly take a report from anyone who feels they may be a victim."

Feldman responded on his Twitter page, writing, "Maybe now u will believe me when I say I need 2 do it my way."

Feldman is best known for such 1980s movies as "The Goonies," "Stand By Me" and "The Lost Boys."
