Robbie Amell and Stephen Amell to Star & Produce Sci-Fi Movie ‘CODE 8’

June 9, 2017


After raising $1,722,409 from 20,201 backers last year through crowdfunding site Indiegogo last year, production has officially begun in Toronto on the sci-fi thriller CODE 8, starring cousins Robie Amell and Stephen Amell.


Jeff Chan directs from a script he co-wrote with Chris Pare.  Sung Kang, Kari Matchett, Greg Bryk and Aaron Abrams joins the cousins.

Code 8 is set in a world where 4% of the population is born with varying supernatural abilities, but instead of being billionaires of superheroes, most “special” face discrimination and live in poverty, often resorting to crime in a world now carefully monitored by drones, guardians and the police. Robbie’s character is struggling to pay for his ailing mother’s health treatment and lured into a lucrative criminal world by Stephen’s character, who works for a drug lord (Bryk).

Robbie and Stephen said:

“We’re thrilled to be starting production with such an extraordinary cast and creative team led by Jeff, and  excited to bring a full-length CODE 8 to the world.”

Chan is producing under his Colony Pictures banner. Joining the Amell’s are Resolute Films’s Lee Kim, Blue Ice Picture’s Mary Anne Waterhouse and Thick Water Entertainment as executive producers.
