Bumblebee: The Movie Bumblebee: The Movie

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.

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.

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!

Deadline 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. Adlon is presumed to be up for the role of the mother of the Hailee Steinfeld character, and hopefully we'll learn more about the film soon. Keep reading for an excerpt from the announcement.

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!

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.

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.

CBS station B96 has interviewed actress Hailee Steinfeld about her part in the upcoming Bumblebee movie as part of an interview held at their station's Pepsi Summer Bash. Steinfeld revealed that she's watching all the existing movies so she has a point of reference for the role, among other things. Our best guess is that, like the rest of us, she's going to be extremely confused after trying to binge-watch all five films. We've embedded the video below, so keep reading to see!

As one Transformers movie news cycle begins to wind down, the next one kicks in to gear. Screen Rant has already been talking about next year's Bumblebee prequel movie with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Perhaps the most interesting piece of this is a change of language, now addressing the 2019 release for "Transformers 6" as a "hope" more than a plan. Might this change of attitude be a response to the surely lower than anticipated performance of The Last Knight in its opening day? Keep reading for more!

Collider has posted information from an interview they had with Lorenzo di Bonaventura, where the producer talked about some of the directions and details of next year's Bumblebee-focused prequel movie. Perhaps the most noteworthy is the suggestion of having only a couple of robot character, and spending a lot more time with them, a concept he seems to link to a "departure" from the movies thus far. We've highlighted certain passes below, and you can find a link to the original article as well - keep reading...

Following the confirmation of Hailee Steinfeld as the female lead for the Transformers Universe Bumblebee 2018 movie, we not only have word that the production shooting is slated to begin soon, but also confirmation from numerous outlets that the sixth Transformers film to focus on the Bee will be set in the 1980s timeframe.

BBC Newsbeat has another interview with Hailee Steinfeld. Just recently she confirmed her involvement with the upcoming Transformers Universe: Bumblebee project in a brief remark. She talks in just a bit more detail here, though of course any real specifics are left out. But what it all boils down to is that production is getting ready to start any time now, which means it's likely the new cycle of set leaks leading up to the first official "behind the scenes" releases is likely right around the corner... Keep reading for quotes from the article.
