Sonoma News is reporting that Paramount Pictures is casting local talent for the new Transformers Bumblebee: Brighton Falls film that has begun shooting in San Rafael, California recently.
The report says production will continue along the North Coast with shooting scheduled for additional locations such as the Marin Headlands, Mare Island and Vallejo and a possible wrap in September at Santa Cruz, California.
The casting call is looking for mostly younger talent as well as other roles and extras. Read the full details on the casting call below.
The Marin Independent Journal is reporting today that production for Transformers Universe: Bumblebee
has begun in the Peacock Gap area, in San Rafael, California. The movie caught attention recently by taking a sizeable incentive from the state of California to film the entire movie within its borders. This leg of production is reportedly codenamed Brighton Falls, though whether that will relate to the content of the movie, such as the location it takes place in, is unknown. A photo from just outside the closed filming was posted with the article. You can find that mirrored below.
The new release of 2007's Leader Class movie Optimus Prime under the Transformers Tribute subline is now available for purchase in the US via Amazon. Like the Orion/Optimus Evolution 2 pack before it, this is apparently an Amazon exclusive. But, unlike the very unexpectedly reasonable price point of the 2 pack, Leader Optimus is currently listed at $79.99. But of course that does mean it qualifies for free shipping whether or not you're an Amazon Prime member. Is the very first movie Optimus with a fancy updated deco worth that to you? If so, hit the link in the full post below, and keep reading for a set of new stock photos of the toy.
Hailee Steinfeld, the first confirmed cast member and lead character in the upcoming Transformers Universe: Bumblebee
, has shared on social media a quick behind the scenes photo of herself in wardrobe. On the instagram post, the photo has the caption, "Meet Charlie Watson", revealing to us the name of her character. Bumblebee
recently boasted the addition of John Cena in a starring role, on the same day it was made known the movie's debut had been pushed back to December of 2018 from its original June premiere. Click through for the full size photo!
Confirming a job listing by Boulder Media earlier this week and long-ago reports of plans stemming from the fables TFCU Writers' Room, Hasbro announced in today's investor meeting that a CGI Transformers
movie is in the works! Set in the current film continuity but with no firm release date, it is part of a larger commitment by Hasbro to release one animated movie a year. Keep reading for details!
They say truth is stranger than fiction, and when word comes down the pipe from Variety that the "Bumblebee" movie will be going head to head with "Aquaman" in the theaters, it is not hard to hear the echo from Big Bang Theory: "Aquaman Sucks!"
Sure, good for a laugh. But there's a certain irony here that is more than Meets the Eye. Arguably, these franchise characters both share a sort of disdain from the fandom, followed by an intense puzzlement as to why they are being forced into the spotlight, regardless of the uproar from fans.
WWE pro wrestler and occasional meme John Cena has been cast in a lead role in the Bumblebee movie, per Hollywood Reporter.
Cena's part is unspecified, but we do have a synopsis of the film, which begins shooting today! So, are your hopes for the film increased, decreased or unchanged with this addition? Keep reading for more details and then let us know in the forums!

Thanks to Oscar Fung's FB page we have a look at the Universal Studios exclusive Black Snarl figure. This figure's a redeco of the Age of Extinction mold in a very attractive mix of silver-gray and clear white plastic armor plating. No details on when, or even where this fellow will land but it appears to be a possible follow up to the new Bumblebee exclusive. Check out the full gallery mirrored below for more on the Universal Studios Black Snarl.
Boulder Media has posted a job listing a 3D CG Supervisor for an unspecified animated movie. A subsidiary of Hasbro Entertainment, up to now Boulder has largely worked in the television field. But it appears they're gearing up for a movie, which they say will be the first produced entirely in Ireland. So, what's the property? They don't say, but it's listed as a "very well-known Hasbro property." There's quite a few of those... but about two years ago we did get some news that may tie into this. Keep reading for details!
From the same round of leaks as the big Power of the Primes
news comes a series of other miscellaneous leaks! First up seems to be a series of movie reissue toys which, given by the dates involved, seems to have been cancelled with the first wave to have occurred in April of this year. We also have some other movie-related figures on display as well as some budget-minded figures such as Cyber Battalion Sideswipe and Shockwave! Keep reading to see it all!
reports that actress Pamela Adlon - recent Emmy winner for her show Better Things,
and voice of Bobby Hill on King Of The Hill
among many others- is in talks to join the cast of Transformers Universe: Bumblebee.

Typically Transformers movies have had budgets around the 200 million dollar level, which includes The Last Knight
with an estimated budget of $217 million - which according to Box Office Mojo, it still has not made back in its domestic ticket sales* as of July 20th. With this in mind, it's perhaps little surprise that the next movie up, the prequel focused on Bumblebee is being run much more lean. Screenrant has reported on the situation and given us a surprisingly low budget projection for the movie. Keep reading to find out what the film will be working with!
With production having just begun on next year's Bumblebee-focused movie, one would hope that assembling a cast has been on someone's mind. The Hollywood Reporter brings word of a number of young actors currently in talks for parts in the film, following behind leads Hailee Steinfeld and Jorge Lendeborg, Jr. No one involved has given any specifics yet towards the story, only sticking to the rundown of Lorenzo di Bonaventura that it'll be smaller, less robots, and more character development focused. Keep reading to find out more about the newest round of casting!
