Corey Haim -- Demanded 'Clean' Set for Final Film

3/10/2010 7:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Corey Haim -- Demanded 'Clean' Set for Final FilmCorey Haim was so committed to winning the battle against his demons that he demanded a completely drug and alcohol-free environment on the set of the movie he was working on when he died.

In the days before Haim's death, Corey was working on a new film called "The Dead Sea" -- and according to one of the movie's producers, Rick Tucker, Haim made it clear that he didn't want temptation anywhere near him.

Tucker tells us that Haim had negotiated his contract to include a provision which required the set to be "clean" during the entire production. Tucker said, everybody affiliated with the movie was supportive of Haim's demand.

With Haim's untimely death, Tucker tells us they have lots of rewriting and reworking to do -- as Haim was one of the main stars of the film.

I still can't believe it. Very, very sad. I hope he is at peace now, and no longer battling his demons...

There is NO SUCH THING as an "untimely death."

When we die, that is the time we die. It might be untimely for others around that person, but for that person, that is his/her time.

You can say an early death or a young death, but it is not "untimely."

No one has a set schedule to die, folks. It is a stupid expression.

It is a sad day. I liked Corey since he was a child. He had lots of talent. He fought a hard battle against his demons and it is sad if he died over an accidental overdose. The comment by his agent about the response by rescue workers are surprising since there is a fire station a couple of blocks away on Cahuenga and one on the Universal Studio property. It should not have taken more than 5 minutes

Enough with the Corey Haim stories. I'd never even heard of this guy before today. Don't make him into Michael Jackson.

He's so skinny in this (current?)photo and in the others(older?) He's rather overweight.
It may lead one to conclude that there was some issue there with the weight loss.

Corey gets the aw shucks he was trying to get better treatment because he was a member of the tribe. If he were anybody else he would have just been reported as another tragically wasted hasbeen celeb who hit rock bottom like all the other child star druggie misfits.

Please wait to you see his friends interviewed you will see the pathetic company he was keeping and you will know even Corey was embarassed of some of those hangers on's that claimed him as a friend when he was using. He really never had a chance of getting clean.

Just wait till you see these fools it is sad and funny at the sametime.

Like he had any "pull" to tell the producers what to do.........Please! Don't get me wrong. it is sad that he has died, but he was not a huge actor by any stretch that would get anything he wanted.

This death sounds illness related. The LAPD should NOT be reporting a drug overdose when that is not known. And why is someone from the LAPD secretly telling TMZ that he nefariously overdosed when they do not have toxicology reports? The LAPD and media did this to Brittany Murphy before knowing any facts, too. You all need to stop denigrating the memory of people until you have facts when you report on these deaths. Seriously.
