Bumblebee: The Movie
WWE Superstar John Cena Joins Cast Of Bumblebee Movie
RAC - Monday, July 31, 2017


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!
John Cena has nabbed a lead role in the Transformers spinoff Bumblebee.

Hailee Steinfeld is leading the cast of Paramount's new film, which will center on the yellow and black bot Bumblebee. The film will feature a young cast including Jorge Lendeborg, Jason Drucker, Abby Quinn, Rachel Crow, Ricardo Hoyos and Gracie Dzienny.

The story is set in the year 1987, where Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.

Travis Knight, who directed the stop-motion movie Kubo and the Two Strings, is helming the new film from a script by Christina Hodson (Shut In). The movie project is the first spinoff in what the studio hopes will be a Transformers Cinematic Universe that will include prequels and offshoots from a line of movies that have generated more than $3.7 billion worldwide. The most recent film, Transformers: The Last Knight, hit theaters June 23, and has earned $568.9 million worldwide so far.

The film is produced by franchise veterans Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Michael Bay, along with executive producers Steven Spielberg, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian. Chris Brigham will also executive produce.


If we had to guess - and we feel like we do! - we'd peg Cena as either Charlie's dad, or as a Sector 7 agent tracking down Bumblebee on Earth, which would fit in with the Iron Giant comparisons that have been made.

More Bumblebee: The Movie News
2005 forums member catz has posted a set of product listings for Hasbro's 2018 offerings! Among the more expected things like the Power of the Primes Titan Class figure (Predaking) are a number of new items, including a new Movie Masterpiece figure, and as-yet unknown items like the previously rumored "Energon Igniters" as well as some Generations item referred to as "Project Storm" - which is said to be a very small item such as perhaps a blind-bag series. Fingers crossed for blind-bagged Titan Masters at least, but meanwhile keep reading for the list!
Paramount has sent out a press release for Bumblebee: The Movie giving a synopsis of the plot and a higher-quality version of the image that circulated the other day of Hailee Steinfeld's Charlie character and Volkswagen Beetle Bumblebee. It's a fairly barebones description of the movie, but we have final confirmation that Bumblebee is indeed a VW Bug in the film. (Toys? Hopefully?) Keep reading to see!
A year from now, Bumblebee: the Movie will be rolling out in cinemas to what will be an unexpected response to the next chapter in the Transformers Cinematic Universe. Those paying attention may have noticed, few are paying attention to what appears to be the "Transformers" (2007) all over again, sans the bratty Shia Lebouf and copious amounts of potty humor that are the signature elements of director's "The Bayhem."
Yahoo! sat down with lead actress Hailee Steinfeld to talk about her recent movie roles. Of course the Transformers "Bubmblebee: The Movie" took up most of her time. Talking about her lead role and working with the director Travis Knight. She does give us some more information about her character Charlie Watson. Who is said to be heavy into music of the 1980s. Read on to watch the video with more details.
IGN spoke with "Bumblebee: The Movie" lead actress, Hailee Steinfeld, about her work on the new Transformers film. The interview covers much of what we know already, but does give give a few interesting bits of information. First is the approach the studio is taking with this film is confirmed as a "we'll see how the first one does" release. If people like it, there could be more. The other bit of news, we hope. Is a hint at more robots than meets the news with a promise of plenty for the fans, in a character and storyline driven movie.
