Roger Corman stated that for each of the 350+ films he's produced, he has worked efficiently and planned them in advance. He told the Toronto Star that he hopes to premiere the film at Comic-Con in July. In a compliment he paid to the actress Sean Young, Corman told her, "Sean, you were great in the picture but you were miscast. You look too good to be the mother!" This will be Corman's first 3D production. Jena Sims was Miss Georgia Teen USA in 2007.
As of yet, there are no plans for the film to be released on Blu-ray or DVD.
