Corey Feldman Mourns Late Joel Schumacher, Says He 'Tried to Prevent My Descent' with Drugs
In a series of tweets, actor Corey Feldman mourned Joel Schumacher and remembered how the director tried to help him after working with the then young actor in The Lost Boys.
The 48-year-old Feldman played under Schumacher in the classic horror / comedy from 1987 together with Corey Haim and was the first time that the two legendary children's actors of the time worked together. The couple played in License to Drive (1988) and Dream a Little Dream (1989).
Schumacher died on Monday after a year-long cancer battle. He was 80 years old.
"JOEL WAS THE DIRECTOR OF #THELOSTBOYS, IT HAS BEEN MADE BY HIM # THE2COREYS OR HAS A MATTER! IT WAS ITS IDEA! 2 A FRIEND FROM THE CABINET THAT FITS HOW I MAKE THE 1st EDGARFROG COSTUME 4 THE FIRST TIME EVER ATTEMPTED! "Feldman wrote in capital letters.

Feldman further claimed that he first got cocaine from an adult on the set of the film, but Schumacher had no idea about the "corruption" on the set.
"Joel was sober at the time and immediately noticed that I was high! He fired me on the spot," Feldmand recalled. "Then he asked where my parents were! When I told him I didn't know, he realized that it wasn't my fault! So he hired me with a warning."
The actor then explained how Schumacher tried to "prevent my relegation" when the film ended, even though he "wasn't listening".
"I never did COCAINE again until a year later. ONCE I STARTED THE WRONG WAY JOEL ME 2 HAD AT HOME. We found that he tried to prevent my lineage HAD 2 BY", Feldmand continued. "However, JOEL SCHUMACHER sent me supportive messages until the end of his life, including a supportive email, because he was unable to attend the premiere of # MYTRUTHTHERAPEOF2COREYS W CONDOLENCES."
"NOW MY CONDOLENCES HAVE HIM! JOEL URA BEAUTIFUL SOUL AND YOU WILL MISS! PLEASE NOTE OUR DUDE THERE IN SKY! ETERNITY! GOD BLESS U MY FRIEND! YOUR ART WILL LIVE IN INFAMY!" Feldman concluded.
Schumacher himself fought much of his 20s with drugs and alcohol and told PEOPLE in 1997 that he was “one of the most promiscuous people on the planet. I was someone who went to a party when I was 11 and came home when I was 52. "
Still, the director managed to keep his addiction under control in time for his work, saying, "I would stop celebrating a month or two before the shoot and stay dry until the end." According to The Hollywood Reporter, he became sober in 1992.
Schumacher is best known for directing two films in the Batman franchise: Batman Forever (1995) and Batman and Robin (1997). After taking over Tim Burton, he coined the popular films.
Before Schumacher started his career as a director, he worked as a costume designer for Woody Allen's Sleeper (1973) and Paul Mazursky's Blume in Love (1973).
His third feature film, St. Elmo's Fire (1985), remains one of his most popular. The drama was played by Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez and Ally Sheedy, and a young Demi Moore as Georgetown graduates who explored life after college.
