Production for the film began in the fall of 2009. According to Bloody Disgusting in April 2011 CBS Films hired director and actor Chris Denham to do some rewrites on Area 51. Peli filmed re-shoots in 2013. In August 2013, Jason Blum stated that film had finished production and that Peli was "tinkering" with the film in post production. On March 14, 2015, Blum confirmed that the film was officially done and would perhaps be released on VOD.  On April 6, 2015, Bloody Disgusting reported that Blum had responded to a twitter user by the handle of @nathantexyocum who asked if he had any news on Area 51 by stating, "very very very soon. -JB".  Finally, on April 23, 2015 it was announced the film would open exclusively in Alamo Drafthouse theaters and through video on demand platforms on May 15, 2015.
