Via fellow Seibertronian SnoopDawg, we have some potential casting choices for the Paramount Bumblebee prequel, already starring Hailee Steinfeld and Jorge Lendenborg Jr, as featured in The Hollywood Reporter. This looks to be an extremely young cast indeed, and with Spielberg reportedly involved in the production again, it looks like Paramount is shifting its efforts on a more targeted audience. Check out more info below!

Paramount's Transformers spinoff Bumblebee is quickly rounding out its cast, adding a handful of young actors including Jason Drucker, Abby Quinn, Rachel Crow, Ricardo Hoyos and Gracie Dzienny, who are in various stages of negotiations.

[...]

The film will clearly feature a slew of young rising stars: Drucker was most recently seen in Fox’s reboot Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul. He’s repped by Coast to Coast and Industry Entertainment.

Hoyos starred on Degrassi: Next Class and also was seen in The Belko Experiment. He’s repped by Industry Entertainment.

Quinn starred opposite Jenny Slate in Gillian Robespierre's Landline, which played at Sundance and hits theaters on July 21. She also stars opposite Joey King in Radium Girls. She’s repped by CAA and Rebecca Kitt & Associates.

Crow has appeared on the TV shows BrainSurge, Big Time Rush and Figure It Out and voiced Carla in the animated film Rio 2. She’s repped by UTA and Untitled Entertainment.

Dzienny’s credits include TV series Zoo and Chasing Life. She’s repped by Innovative Artists and Inphenate.

He clearly is talking about every single human in this movie. On the bright side, if every one is an unknown nobody, maybe it will focus better on the robits than goofy parents or humping dogs. :michaelbay:

Should also mean a lower budget that should be put into more robot screen time since their not hiring a bunch of celebrities.

So this is gonna be very high-school. That's cool, Bumblebee is a kid-appeal character so it makes sense to have him hang with kids.

I'm hoping the new creative team can pull something good out. I have hopes for the film, Iron Giant style with a few robots and a new setting all included

Omega Underground has gotten word of some of the details of the Bumblebee film. The production title will be "Brighton Falls" according to Omega Underground. While this name does not give us many clues as to what the movie might be about, the article does give us some eye-opening hints.

From what we are told, Hailee Steinfeld will have a starring role as a tomboy who has a job as a mechanic after school. This may not tell us much by itself, but combined with what producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has hinted in the past about taking inspiration from the animated Iron Giant film we can ponder some ideas.

“There are dramatically less Transformers. We hired purposefully Travis Knight, who is a very distinct filmmaker. You can’t compete with Michael, you’re gonna lose. And also I think the audience wants something different all the time, let’s keep them interested. They’re gonna get a very emotionally complex story, a very tight story in terms of its location and in terms of its storytelling. In fact it reminds me a little bit of ‘Iron Giant’ years ago when I did that movie at Warner Bros. It just reminds me a little bit of that where it was very contained and yet it didn’t feel small.”

Thanks to Seibertronian SnoopDawg, we know that the Hollywood Reporter is, well, reporting that the upcoming Bumblebee Spinoff Film will have a extremely small budget of only $70 Million. This comes in at one third of the budget for The Last Knight, which strained Paramount's wallets at an estimated $217-$270 million. Here's the excerpt from the HW article, but read the full write up
here!

Now, Paramount is cutting costs. Its Bumblebee spin-off is pegged at $70 million-plus (according to sources), compared to Last Knight's $217 million.

A younger cast, headed by Hailee Steinfeld, 20, will be directed by Travis Knight when filming starts in August. The story, centered on the yellow bot, will be set in 1987.

The more I see about this movie the less it interests me.

Low-budget

A bunch of C-list actors

Very few actual transformers

Do the people at Paramount actual listen to ANY criticism at all? FOR AN ENTIRE DECADE, the fans have been saying, "more transformers, less humans", and after TLK underperformed BOTH critically and financially, they make this. Wouldn't be surprised if this ends up putting the final nail in the coffin for this franchise.

However, If we finally get Cliffjumper, I can be swayed. If they do this right, I want a hotrod-cliff-bee team against starscream, barricade, and maybe a few others. But if this is by the same "transformers universe writers room" it'll probably crash and burn. I'm of the few in the fanbase that actually likes these movies for what they are, but TLK crossed multiple lines.

According to online magazine Deadline, there is news for the Transformers Universe: Bumblebee movie set for 2018 in terms of casting: Pamela Adlon has been eyed for the role of Hailee Steinfeld's character's mother. Nothing has been confirmed as yet, but you can read more below!

Pamela Adlon, fresh off a Best Comedy Series Actress Emmy nomination for her FX series Better Things, is in negotiations to join the cast of Bumblebee, Paramount’s first spinoff of its Transformers franchise.

You don't even have to call a red Bumblebee by any other name, red Bumblebee's been a thing since 1984.
