A couple of weeks ago came a short teaser for “Code 8,” a mysterious project being made by actors Robbie and Stephen Amell from The CW’s “The Flash” and “Arrow” series.
Details have now been unveiled and it appears that the short was a teaser for a larger project which sought funding on IndieGoGo. The short was shot last summer and their campaign has already surpassed $320,000 in five days, which means they’re going to be shooting the full feature now. The synopsis 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 (Amell) struggling to find work as a day laborer. After a dispute over payment, he finds himself in a confrontation with a police officer (Kang) and the autonomous robots backing him up.
More details are up on IndieGoGo.
