There’s no slowing down for Arrowverse star Stephen Amell between the premiere of his new sci-fi film Code 8 and the more recent news of a spinoff series based on the movie getting set up over at Quibi. Amell will soon be leaving the Arrowverse after starring on the CW series Arrowfor nearly a decade. As the final season of the show winds down, Amell is getting stuck into new projects, which currently includes Code 8 and the wrestling TV series Heels.
The Code 8 feature film is based on a short film of the same name starring the Amells. Both Amell and Robbie launched an Indiegogo campaign in 2016 to turn their short into a feature-length film, ultimately raising $2.4 million from 27 backers after initially seeking just $200,000. This upcoming Code 8 Quibi series will be produced by Colony Pictures (who are also behind the feature film) along with Chan, Pare, the Amells, and XYZ Film.
Code 8 arrives in theaters on December 13.
