Bumblebee: The Movie
Bumblebee Movie Gets 22 Million to Make Transformers Film in California
BaCon - Tuesday, July 11, 2017


According to the LA Times, the next foray into the Transformers Movie Universe will get a record $22 Million tax credit for shooting the movie entirely in California, USA. The money comes from what is being called a "state program aimed at curbing so-called runaway production."

Is it just me, or does it seem odd WE the people should foot the bill for productions that all the profit goes back to the studio? California is not alone, Michigan and other states have provided these incentive before. The idea being, these productions will bring jobs and income to the state.
The production, described only in state records as the “Untitled Paramount Project,” has received preliminary approval to receive a state tax credit of $22 million, according to the California Film Commission.

The amount exceeds the roughly $18 million in credits approved in August 2016 for Walt Disney Studio’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” which also shot in California.

Filmmakers can recoup as much as 25% of their spending (up to the first $100 million) on crew salaries and other qualified costs, such as building sets. Studios can then use such credits to offset state tax liabilities they have in California.

More Bumblebee: The Movie News
IGN spoke with "Bumblebee: The Movie" lead actress, Hailee Steinfeld, about her work on the new Transformers film. The interview covers much of what we know already, but does give give a few interesting bits of information. First is the approach the studio is taking with this film is confirmed as a "we'll see how the first one does" release. If people like it, there could be more. The other bit of news, we hope. Is a hint at more robots than meets the news with a promise of plenty for the fans, in a character and storyline driven movie.
In a warehouse far far away, a jedi... er uh, robot movie is finishing production. What we once knew as "Bumblebee: Brighton Falls" has been re-dubbed "Bumblebee: The Movie." Also revealed was the new film logo that is looks distinctly G1 until you gaze at the pink robot cartoon thing. Probably best to not say anything else but this, read on for the full look at the image by way of Comic Book Movie.
Transformers series Lorenzo di Bonaventura has spoken to Deadline Hollywood about the Transformers movies and the nature of the series' partnership with China. The article also drops a small piece of information about the number of robots we can expect to see in the film - and it's less than even 2007's Transformers, as we all expected. But also more than two! And also, an interesting tidbit about why, exactly, Transformers is so big in China to begin with. Keep reading to see!
The speculation, though hardly doubtful, over the Sector 7 role wrestler / actor John Cena would be playing in the new Transformers Bumblebee spin-off movie has been confirmed by John himself. Posting on Twitter about his working a "A full day in Sector 7" on the set that has kept him away from his Wrestling duties. So, yet another slice in the whatever-pie that the code named "Brighton Falls" may be. Part teen summer frenzy, part wanna-be sidekick robot coming into his own, part government anti-alien covert-operations, part why would anyone want to see this at Christmas time, with mostly everyone losing hope really fast.
Looks like actor John Cena may be playing a Sector 7 agent in the Bumblebee Brighton Fall movie that has recently began product in Los Angeles. Thanks to a new image from Yesterday of John on set with Hailee Steinfeld, from her Instagram News account #hsteinfeldnews. We see him in a familiar uniform with what appears to be a weapon we have seen before. Shown mounted lower left, it looks like what was used to subdue and capture Bumblebee in the Transformers (2007) movie, Hrmmmm!
