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...

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.

Keep reading for quotes from the article.

There was also the hint that the 1980's might be the target time period for the story. You can find the image that was on display at the expo mirrored below.

After the recent trademarking of what's believed to be the Bumblebee Movie logo, Hasbro continues preparing for its 2018 cinematic outing with a new trademark reported by Transformers@TheMoon: Bee Vision. Really, what are the odds this isn't related to the Bumblebee Movie?
