Bumblebee: Brighton Falls
Jorge Lendeborg Jr. May Take Lead in New Bumblebee Movie
BaCon - Tuesday, July 11, 2017


According to Hollywood reporter, actor Jorge Lendeborg Jr. is currently in talks to play the male lead in the next Transformers movie that is tentatively referred to as the "Bumblebee Movie". Jorge has played roles in The Land (2016), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Brigsby Bear (2017).

Set sometime in the 1980s, the lead female role will be played by Hailee Steinfeld. The choice of the new lead role, will give us a better idea of what kind of movie this may be. As word has it, this one will feature less robots, and more human character development.
Rising star Jorge Lendeborg Jr. is in talks for another big project: He'll play the young male lead in Paramount's Transformers spinoff Bumblebee.

Hailee Steinfeld also will star in the film which Travis Knight, who directed the stop-motion movie Kubo and the Two Strings, is helming.

Bumblebee is the yellow and black striped Autobot that appears as one of the main characters in the Transformers film series. Plot details have not been released, but Steinfeld will play a tomboy who also holds a job as a mechanic after school. Sources say the tale is a prequel to the main film series, focused on Bumblebee's life in an earlier decade. Christina Hodson (Shut In) wrote the script.

More Bumblebee: Brighton Falls News
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!
Thanks to a video interview posted by Ramdeen Productions, we have word from Peter Cullen himself that he be taking the helm as the voice of Optimus Prime in the 2018 Transformers Bumblebee Brighton Falls film that is production now. While is has been said the film would not feature other robots, it seems impossible to do so with ol' Prime give the boy a talkin' to at some point in the film. And where there's Autobots, there's Decepticons. Surely more bots are meets the eyes in this teen-filled Transformers movie.
Returning home from his on-location coverage of the Bumblebee movie production location in Santa Cruz, our own BaCon discovered the entry signs for a second site just north of the city. He describes it as going up a remote mountain road toward the redwood forest, and he saw riding horses being brought in, though as one would expect, access beyond the security gate was not possible. We've got a photo of the entryway below, and we'll be keeping an eye out for more from this area!
LAIKA, the animation studio of Bumblebee director Travis Knight, has posted an image of Knight from the set of the film! He's leaning on the hood of a heavily-modified 1971 Plymouth GTX that can be seen to have a Decepticon emblem on its hood medallion. The identity of this character is not known at present, but we'll likely find out more as we closer to the release of the film next year. Keep reading for the photo!
