We have an additional peek into the current state and direction of the upcoming Bumblebee The Movie, thanks to an interview from Billboard magazine! They stopped Hailey Steinfeld, the movie's star, on the red carpet of this year's Grammy's to ask her about her upcoming music and her upcoming Transformers project!

In addition to being an actress, she's a talented musician, with several chart-scaling hits, so obviously one of the questions asked was about if she had any intention to produce music for Bumblebee. She revealed she might be producing some and collaborating with...Bumblebee?!?!

Take a look at the full transcript of the interview below, speculate down in the Energon Pub Forums, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for any further updates on Bee's budding music career!

INT: You're working on some new music you told, you told Billboard about some new music that you're working on and how it's going to take kind of a different direction this time around; what can we say about it?

H: Well you know it's funny, I'm, I'm in the process, I mean I've been, I've been working on music for a while, um, and it's funny cause obviously a movie can come up and take me sort of out of the game for two, three months. Um, and so I do feel like, as much as I could say I'm sort of in "album mode" or the "next EP" mode, I'm still experimenting. Uh, and I'm still really figuring out what that sound is and what direction we might call it. So um, I'm working on it.

INT: I like the, that's a good answer. Cause you've had lots of hits already, like over the past four years you keep having hit after hit. So whatever you're doing, it's working. Um, you're going to be an advisor on The Voice this season, um, you're going to be giving great sage advice to a lot of folks. What is a great piece of advice that you yourself have gotten, maybe from another musician in the business?

H: Well I am very lucky, I feel like I've, I've gotten quite a lot of great advice, um, from some amazing people and amazing artists. Uh, but I just think, really just never losing sight of, of who you are and what makes you happy. I think there obviously are a lot of people that are going to have a lot of opinions, um, about who you are, what you do, how you do certain things, how you look. Um, and it's important that regardless, whatever you end up doing is for you.

INT: One last question: You're in the new Bumblebee movie-

H: Yes!

INT: It's coming, I think at the end of this year.

H: Yeah.

INT: Are you going to be singing with the car? I'm just wondering.

H: *Laughs* Uh, there may be a little, uh, plot twist [joking tone] Bumblebee actually may be singing. Um, I do hope the, uh - the movie takes place in the 80's and there are some incredible 80's references in terms of music. So, I'm hoping that maybe uh, y'know, post-production-wise I can jump in on a, on a little something.

INT: 80's covers, perhaps?

H: 80's covers perhaps.

INT: Thank you so much Hailee, have a great night.

Well, yeah, I'd say Bumblebee is the most badass Bayverse 'bot. He's kind of the only one from the 2007 flick that hasn't died in some way.

Would you look at that? Take away Bay and suddenly we're allowed to have supplementary material for the movies again in the U.S. :APPLAUSE:

Well, yeah, he's not involved in this movie. ;)

In all seriousness, he was the reason we didn't get any supplementary material in the U.S. for either AOE or TLK, as he stated that he didn't want anything like books or comics to spoil the things in the movies for people like how the DOTM books/comics gave away Sentinel Prime's betrayal in that movie.

Courtesy of German site bluray-disc.de, we have some new information about the upcoming Bumblebee movie, the first spin-off in the Transformers live-action movieverse - and possibly the only one if the alleged reboot is to happen as we have learned so far - including details of the home release of the movie, and a new synopsis for the plot, featuring Hailee Steinfeld (as Charlie Watson), John Cena (as Sector 7 agent Burns), and the Plymouth GTX as Bumblebee's antagonist.

Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion thread, but aware that the synopsis is fairly hefty in terms of spoiling the plot for fans who want to go in knowing as little as possible!

[quote]Bumblebee: The Movie (Blu-Ray + DVD + UV Copy) Blu-ray
Movie description:

1987, California: In her sleepy home town of Brighton Falls, 17-year-old Charlie Watson (H. Steinfeld) dreams of escaping the wastelands of her community. One day she discovers an old VW Beetle at the nearby junkyard and begins to get it started again in loving detail. But, as it turns out, behind the battered old-timer is an alien Autobot called Bumblebee, who many decades earlier had the assignment to protect humanity from invasion by the evil Decepticons. However, when a Sector 7 agent named Burns (J. Cena) starts asking questions in the little village that leaves little doubt as to his destination, Charlie realizes that she has to help Bumblebee escape as quickly as possible. But there is already a Plymouth GTX in their way, who has pursued the yellow Transformer for quite some time and leaves no stone unturned to turn him into a pile of scrap[/quote]

So, it's another Herbie movie crossed with a remake of the Texas scenes of AOE. :P

Hrmmmm...my spidey-sense is tingling.....I wonder if like some other movies, this could actually drop on Netflix in December instead of a World Wide theatrical release... :-?

The more I think about it, this plot actually kinda sounds a bit like what I imagined the plot of the 2007 movie (or at least, that movie's "Sam Witwicky gets his first car" plot) might have been like before that movie came out.

It is? You've seen the movie?

At least this is a proper synopsis, unlike what we got before. Considering that this will be aimed at kids, I wonder if Cena will play his Sector 7 agent straight serious or like John Turturro played Simmons.

"Straight to video" was the first thought that came to mind when I saw this news story.

That's what it sounds like to me too. Guess I can scratch that off my "to see in theaters list". I don't often go to theaters anyway, but I will go see Jurassic World 2. Bumblebee was the only other movie I had in mind to go see.

Yes. In this case it emphasizes your judgmental sarcasm. How about giving the movie and the story a chance before you shit all over it?

Why, thank you for telling me what my own use of a smiley means.

In all seriousness, it meant I was playfully kidding. This other smiley is sarcastic one: >:oP

You asked.[quote]In all seriousness, it meant I was playfully kidding. This other smiley is sarcastic one: >:oP[/quote]Well, the words had a definite condescending tone.

As for the film outperforming TLK at the box office? I doubt it, unless it gets a great marketing campaign and the movie is actually good which will generate good reviews and word of mouth. IMO it won't have a better opening weekend thanks to Aquaman opening on the same day but it might surpass TLK in total box office.

It's been a little while since we've heard any major news about the upcoming Bumblebee stand alone film, but we do have a couple stories to bring you today. First, we have one of the first outside opinions on the main plot of Bumblebee, from screenwriter Steven DeKnight. Coming as a snippet of an interview from entertainment website Uproxx for his upcoming film Pacific Rim: Uprising, he shares that the story they used for the Transformers spin off was his favorite to come out of the Transformers screenwriting room that was arranged last year by Michael Bay and Paramount. Check out the Transformers-related section of the interview below.

Our second Bumblebee story is a bit of a rumor in conjunction with a recent announcement from Paramount themselves. It's been said recently (notably by reviewer and journalist Manabyte (Or Jeremy Conrad) that Paramount is planning to do an early screening of the Bumblebee movie sometime very soon, and that info collides with the announcement that this year's Wondercon Anaheim will be the backdrop to the first screening of a secret Paramount film. There are several Paramount movies coming out this year, and nothing in particular points to the Bumblebee movie being the secret screening this Friday, but there is a chance. Either way, we'll find out this Friday!

[quote]Uproxx: You were part of the Transformers writers’ room. I’m so curious: What’s a Transformers writing room like?

Steven DeKnight: It was a blast.

Uproxx: I imagine.

Steven DeKnight: It was a room full of incredibly talented, interesting, really wonderful people. I’ve got to say, my time spent in there was just, more than anything, was just so much fun. Everyone was so much fun and interesting. And we actually wrote, I think it was, I want to say 12 different movies. Every one of us took a different idea and developed it into like a full 30-page outline, so there were like 12 movies. And also, in complete honesty, my absolute favorite movie of the bunch was the Bumblebee movie that they’re making right now.

Uproxx: I’ve heard good things about it.

Steven DeKnight: The idea was fantastic.[/quote]
