Continuing to be a smashing hit on Indiegogo, Robbie and Stephen Amell’s action-packed film Code 8 has secured nearly $400,000 in less than two weeks on the global crowdfunding platform.
The Arrow stars took to the funding platform for the movie. Its description reads:
“The film takes place in a world where 4% of the population are born with some type of supernatural ability. Instead of being billionaire superheroes, most ‘specials’ live in poverty and resort to crime, forcing the police to become more militarized. The story follows a young man with special powers (Robbie Amell) struggling to find work as a day laborer. After a dispute over payment, he finds himself in a confrontation with a police officer (Sung Kang) and the autonomous robots backing him up.”
Code 8 will be shot in Los Angeles and will also star Aaron Abrams (Hannibal, Blindspot, Chad Donella (Scandal), and Alfred Rubin Thompson (Club Dead). Unfortunately due to scheduling issues, Stephen will not be in the film, but will act as an executive producer.
During a recent update, the Code 8 crew answered a few frequent questions that they have received during the past 10 days:
- All Premiere perks including the VIP Premiere, are for you and a friend, which means you get two tickets! Bring your significant other, your mom, your friend, anyone! That’s up to you.
- The shooting location for the movie is not locked down, but if you are interested in being an extra you will be given plenty of notice as to the exact city and location as details firm up.
- T-shirts/Hoodies: We will be sending out a short survey after the campaign to confirm shipping details and obtain sizing information. We will be supplying sizes S – XXL.
The team also revealed a few fan art.
Code 8’s campaign is set to close at the end of the month.
