Netflix has acquired the global rights to Canadian sci-fi sequel Code 8: Part II.
The film stars Robbie Amell (Upload) and Stephen Amell (Arrow), reprising their roles from the 2019 film, Code 8 (already available on Netflix UK). It follows a teenage girl with abnormal abilities who witnesses the murder of her brother and the subsequent cover-up. She seeks the help of an ex-con (Robbie Amell) and his former partner-in-crime (Stephen Amell). Together, they face a unit of corrupt police officers who deploy advanced robotic technology to prevent themselves from being exposed.
The film hails from Collective Pictures and XYX Films. Directed by Jeff Chan, and written by Chris Paré and Jeff Chan, Sherren Lee and Jesse LaVercombe, the film is produced by Robbie and Stephen Amell, along with Chan and Paré.
The film will film in Canada later this year and be released globally by Netflix.
