Deadline Hollywood has dropped a new post letting us know that even before Transformers 5: The Last Knight is in the can. The Transformers 6 Bumblebee spinoff is moving ahead with plans as the scirpt is reported to be complete, the search for a movie director begins.
With Transformers films having been handled exclusively by blockbuster titan, Michael Bay. Meeting expectations of the past, while hopefully lifting the franchise out of the Bayhem are high.
The Bumblebee script penned by writers room member, Christina Hodson, appears to aim the 6th installment at the lady fans of franchise.
The studio finally has a script it’s sweet on, and will shortly go out to directors. This comes after Paramount and Michael Bay assembled a “writers room” constructed of his scribes who fleshed out the Hasbro universe. A late addition to that program, Christina Hodson, is the scribe who cracked the spinoff and turned in a script that will make it possible for Paramount to mount the film for 2018. Hodson was one of three female writers (Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet were the others) who joined a group of male scribes in the writers room in summer 2015, as they set out to hatch ideas to expand the mythology of the universe. The next sequel, Transformers 5, is directed by Michael Bay and scripted by Ken Nolan and Iron Man scribes Art Marcum & Matt Holloway. It hits theaters June 23, 2017, while Bumblebee has been dated for June 8, 2018.
Hobson, who's had a good bit of experience as both an entertainment writer, and being part Asian is hoped to bring something new to the franchise that has been both blessed and cursed by the audacious style of director Michael Bay.
