The Arrowverse veteran Amell cousins, who co-starred in director Jeff Chan's 2018 crowdfunded independent sci-fi thriller Code 8, are reteaming for a Quibi series spinoff of the film. Chan will helm the Quibi series, which will be written by Code 8 screenwriter Chris Paré. As Deadline notes, Code 8 "is set in a world where 4% of the population is born with supernatural abilities — but instead of being treated as heroes, they are feared and heavily policed. The series will take place years after the events of the movie, centering around an ex-con (Robbie Amell) and telekinetic drug dealer (Stephen Amell) who are forced to work together to bring down a dangerous trafficking ring run by corrupt cops and the city’s elite." Stephen Amell and Robbie Amell funded the movie, which originated as a short, via an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign in 2016.
