Arrow star Stephen Amell released a teaser trailer for a mystery sci-fi project called Code 8, starring his cousin Robbie Amell and Fast & Furious actor Sung Kang.
“I’ve been working on something. So has Robbie Amell & Sung Kang,” Stephen wrote on Facebook. The footage shows glimpses of Lincoln City, a place where people with “abnormal abilities” make up 60 percent of all arrests. Robbie seems to play one of these superhumans, while Kang is seen driving a cop car before robotic reinforcements descend from a ship.
Very little is known about Code 8, but the Amells first debuted the teaser at the Heroes & Villains Fan Fest in Chicago. “Stephen and I have been trying to work together for a long time,” Robbie said. “We got a little taste of it on the Flash, Arrow crossover, and we’ve been putting this together since August with a bunch of friends and family, and calling in favors.”
The official website features a clock counting down to a reveal on March 22, and an adjoining Facebook page lists Aaron Abrams (Hannibal), Chad Donella (Taken 3), and Alfred Rubin Thompson (Club Dead) among the cast. In a live Facebook video posted back in November, Stephen described the reveal as a “teaser trailer that will eventually become a film.”
Code 8 is directed by Jeff Chan and written by Chris Pare, both also producing with the Amells, Geoff Mclean, and Tommy Dingwall. Fans interested in more information can go to Code8.com and sign up for exclusive email updates.
W A R N I N G: Contains spoilers!
During a panel at Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in New Jersey this weekend, The Flash recurring guest star Robbie Amell dropped what seems to be a huge spoiler.
For those who don’t remember, his character — Ronnie Raymond — died in the Season Two premiere, but recently The CW confirmed we’ll see an evil, Earth-2 version of Ronnie as Deathstorm in an upcoming episode.
“In episode 13, so in a couple weeks, you’ll see me as Deathstorm, and Caitlin as Killer Frost. So I get to come back, and I kill a series regular. So there’s that, I’m probably going to get in trouble for saying that,” Robbie Amell said at the Flash panel at Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in New Jersey.
Of course, it’s generally assumed that the episode actually takes place on Earth-2, so the question then becomes whether it will be an “actual” series regular or whether he’ll get to kill an actor who is also a series regular, because he takes out the Earth-2 version of somebody.
In the “A little of each” column, of course, he could kill Harrison Wells — but that would be a curious move, since everyone is assuming that Deathstorm and Killer Frost are in league with Zoom, who currently is using Wells for his own ends.
The Flash airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
When Barry Allen & Co. head to Earth-2 after The Flash returns, they’ll be facing some very familiar foes: Killer Frost and Deathstorm.
EW has your exclusive first look at the dynamic villainous duo, the Earth-2 versions of Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell), who will appear in an upcoming episode fittingly titled “Welcome to Earth-2.”
“Some of these people are beyond different,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says of the group coming face-to-face with their doppelgängers. The Flash boss points to Wells (Tom Cavanagh) as a prime example of differing personalities across universes. “[Wells] seems so different until you start seeing the crazy differences between all of our other cast members. Then he’s the one who doesn’t seem quite so different and crazy anymore.” Beyond Ronnie and Caitlin’s doppelgängers, Kreisberg teases, “There’s a couple of surprises that we’ve got in store that we’re really excited about.”
