With the new trailer hitting the Nets, there's a number of interesting news stories to go along with it. For those not paying attention to the title, the Transformers 6: Bumblebee spin-off definitely begins with Transformers 5 The Last Knight. According to Colliger by way of co-Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. This film will be "laying a pipe" for the Bumblebee movie. He goes on to say we won't notice the "pipe", but it may be too late for that. There is also some word of an alternate, R-rated Bumblebee script idea. Read on for more.
Some of the things will have a very direct relationship. You’ll see some things in here that are laying a pipe. You won’t necessarily know that it’s laying a pipe for another movie, but it’s there.
So there’s probably, in a really meaningful way, two or three things in this movie that really have a meaningful aspect in terms of it, and then there’s a bunch of little things. But we’re not making this movie to set up the other movies. That’s what I’m trying to say. If you get too carried away with that, you stop thinking about this movie.
And this movie, the two lines of mythology in a sense give you freedom to go a lot of different places later on that may or may not directly relate to another movie, but it’s opening up the universe in a way that, I think, it’s probably the most provocative, in terms of the movie. It’s opening a really large universe of what Transformers is, and where they’ve come from, and how we relate to them, and how they relate to themselves.
Another thing you may not have noticed about the Bumblebee movie, is its very likely going to be aimed at women with Writer's Room Christina Hodson (Shut In, Unforgettable) writing the script. This is only makes it more interesting that Bay's running joke of an R-Rated Transformers movie. WAS an idea floated by the writers.
You know, yeah, that would be fun. There’s actually one idea that would be really fun R rated, with Bumblebee. I don’t wanna say, but it would be really fun. Very Quentin [Tarantino], you know.
