• Filmed on location in Vancouver; British Columbia, Canada
• Amy’s character was classed as a “nervous woman in a lab coat”
• The ‘monster’ and tagline had been kept under wraps
• Slated for release on February 5, 2010 (US & UK)
• Has now been put back a year for the 3-D treatment, so the release date has been changed to January 14, 2011
• Amy’s role has been confirmed (previously rumoured, but taken to be true) by none other than Dollhouse co-star, Fran Kranz, on his official Twitter
• Amy later confirmed her role in January 2010, which is a small part that took 3 weeks to film
• The movie has now been delayed indefinitely, so a release date is currently unknown [as of September 2010]
• During January 2011, it was confirmed that film studio MGM declared bankruptcy, thus once more shelving the film. The studio has since partnered with Sony, therefore increasing the chances of a film release. Fingers crossed!
• It was also confirmed that the film hadn’t completed the conversion to 3D so it is likely that the film will be released in 2D (i.e. normal standard) although it is not yet known whether it will be a theatrical or straight-to-DVD release
• Announced during Comic-Con 2011 that the USA release date was [Friday] April 13, 2012; ended up being the same date for both US & UK theatrical releases
