Cousins Stephen and Robbie Amell, known for the Arrowverse, crowd-funded a science-fiction movie back in 2016 to the tune of around $2.5 million and got to make Code 8.
Among the perks, included that fans could be cast as extras and appear in the movie, in addition to various items like hats, shirts, hoodies and more.
I'm actually a backer of Code 8 as well, which recently saw the news that it will have a theatrical release.
A new teaser has been released that features Stephen Amell and Robbie Amell where the tweet offers a December 13 release. Watch below!
Code 8 is directed by Jeff Chan, written by Chris Pare, and stars both Stephen Amell and Robbie Amell, who are known for playing Green Arrow and Firestorm in the Arrowverse, respectively.
The film is set in a world where 4% of the population is born with some type of supernatural ability, but instead of being superheroes, they are heavily policed and live in poverty. Connor Reed (Robbie Amell) is a powerful young “electric” struggling to pay for his ailing mother’s medical treatment. To earn money, he joins a lucrative criminal world led by Garrett (Stephen Amell), who teaches him how to use his powers to pull off a series of increasingly dangerous crimes. Sung Kang (Fast & Furious) and Greg Bryk (Ad Astra) also star.
