On November 22, 2010, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Warner Bros. had acquired the rights to the film.  Estimated year of release of the film is 2012 .  Meanwhile, the company 20th Century Fox still has the rights to release various products with the themes of the series Buffy and Angel.
In December 2010, it became known that the star of the series “ Chorus ”, Heather Morris, was in talks about the main role in the film. However, the film’s screenwriter, Whit Anderson, stated that the casting had not yet begun. In an interview for Access Hollywood, the actress confirmed that she knew about these rumors, but she did not give a definitive answer regarding their veracity, noting that filming in the film would not be a problem for her work schedule in The Choir. Actress Candice Accola from the series “ The Vampire Diaries ” also noted her interest in participating in the project in an interview for “E! Online ”, noting that she is a fan of the film and has never watched its television version.
- The main shooting of the picture took place in Los Angeles .
- The director of the film, Fran Rubil Kuzuy, having the rights to the franchise, was considered one of the producers of the television series of the same name, which shot seven seasons, but at the same time he never appeared on the set and had nothing to do with his success.

- Although the film’s events are mentioned in the series, in many ways the two versions of the story diverge, and Joss Whedon considers the series a spin-off rather than a sequel to the film.
