With Transformers: The Last Knight reaching cinemas worldwide (mostly, does not apply in Japan and other regions) this weekend, we delve into the other movie in the Paramount Universe: Bumblebee! Courtesy of Screenrant and producer Lorenzo diBonaventura, we know that the movie starring Hailee Steinfeld will start shooting this August - with plans for a sixth movie in the linear series to *maybe* happen in 2019.

Transformers News: Transformers: Bumblebee 2018 Starts Shooting in August, Maybe Sixth Film in 2019

In our exclusive interview with Transformers: The Last Knight producer Di Bonaventura, the premiere blockbuster filmmaker told us that filming on Bumblebee will begin this August, followed by an expected theatrical release later next summer. Exclusive:

“Well we’re going to shoot a prequel actually, a Bumblebee movie, which starts in August, so next summer we’ll see a Bumblebee movie. And then we hope to have another Transformers movie the following summer.“

[...]

“Look, I always wait for the audience, because there’s an arrogance to getting ahead of your audience. When you do, you get punched. So we’ll wait each time. We’re planning a lot of movies, but you’ve got to have the audience’s support, because these movies are very expensive.“


There is a possibility that the studio is waiting for more information on box office performance for The Last Knight, not off to a great start as of yet. Read the whole piece here!

Anyone else thinkin that this movie will just be as bad as all the other live action TF ones? coz Bay's still involved in it in some capacity
Re: Transformers: Bumblebee 2018 Starts Shooting in August, Maybe Sixth Film in 2019 (1892032)

After the previous confirmation of the movie being set in the 1980s, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura also teased Bumblebee's possible incarnation in the movie as the traditional G1 Volkswagen Beetle model - though obviously take it with as much salt as you can grab.

“You might even see a VW Bug,” Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura tells EW. “You never know.”


The producer also talked more about the story of the movie, and why now is the best time to work within the Paramount/Hasbro shared universe, name-dropping a couple of other toy franchises as he went.

“The interesting thing about doing a spin-off is it has to have some familiarity with the franchise, and then it has to have its own distinct qualities for it to stand on its own,” di Bonaventura says. After that, Paramount is trying to see if Transformers — and a few other Hasbro toy properties, like M.A.S.K. — can become part of an expanded universe.

Obviously, the Bumblebee film serves as a kind of prequel to the Bay movies.

“It’s the story of a 17-, 18-year-old girl who, through a series of events, she and Bumblebee find each other, and they make each other whole,” di Bonaventura said. “Bumblebee’s a very loving character. He’s got a lot of heart, so of course the idyllic life of these two is interrupted by the evil Decepticons. And how are they going to be able to deal with the problem without Optimus and without everybody else?”


The full piece can be found here, and is best served accompanied by this previous interview too!

In what way is Bay involved? There's a completely different director this time around and I doubt they'd get him for screenwriting or character design or anything. Even if he was there it's not like his presence poisons any chance of a movie being good -- the dude's not Pat Lee, he's just a director that has no new tricks up his sleeves.

Still, the movie could easily be as bad as the rest of them. But given that there is a new director and it's animated, it's the only one I have hope of being good.

If you haven't realised by now, people will blame Bay for anything he is even remotely associated with.

Look at the last two TMNT movies. They were panned by fans and he was blamed even though he was only a Producer. Not a Director, not a Writer, PRODUCER. But like always, the Bay-haters blamed him.

And with him lined up to be a Producer on the Bumblebee movie, he will once again shoulder the blame by those fanboys who need to seriously grow the hell up.

Well... he IS involved it to some degree, now I know he's the producer or in the running to be the producer of the movie.

Either way, Bay is actually the biggest problem I had with the movies. Were there other problems outside of his directing? Oh god yes. Terrible, overly-complex and messy plots filled with horrifically annoying unlikable obnoxious characters proved the screenwriters certainly weren't up to snuff, but you know what? Usually in an action movie I could at least come and away and say "well, at least the action is good". But... the action wasn't good after the first one. It quickly became apparent that Bay really had nothing new to show us and was just repeating his same tricks over and over -- it certainly didn't help that his directing style itself was as all-over-the-place and as messy as the screenwriting, making sure I had no idea what was going on and ensuring I couldn't even make out anything that was happening. It was very, very sloppy and lazy and showed he didn't have a good grasp on how to create a movie.

So, yeah, a new director is awesome news to me. Maybe it'll turn out terrible either way but it's the only time I've felt a smidgen of hope for this movie series.

Okay, that's enough of the Bay-bashing. Seriously. It's the same old shit over and over again. It's been going on for 10 years and he's still here. Enough. Talk about Bumblebee and the movie.

Honestly I hope Bee won't have a VW alt mode, or if he does it's at the beginning for a few minutes. I liked the 1977 Camaro from the 1st film so I would like to see it come back.

Either way, VW Bug sounds cute -- I'm surprised VW are letting them get away with it though.

I can't decide if it would be better to have the movie end in the 80s and leave room for a sequel or if it should end with Bee following Sam and his dad to Bolivia's car dealership.

Either way if the majority takes place in the 80s I hope the movie will have a kickass 80s soundtrack instead of the worthless garbage the movies have gotten since DoTM.

We have some new information about the soon to start shooting Bumblebee spin-off movie, courtesy of a number of appearances of its lead actor Hailee Steinfeld! Speaking to ET Canada, she mentioned that preparation and acceptance of the role came via her brother, an avid movieverse Transformers fan.

“My brother is to blame for introducing me to ‘Transformers’,” Steinfeld jokingly explains. “I’m like, ‘Finally, I get to make a movie for my brother!’ He loves ‘Pitch Perfect’, but he’s kind of like, ‘Where’s the action? Where’s the cars?’ So yeah, I’m really excited.”


While with B96, attending the Pepsi Summer Bash, Steinfeld talked about preparation and the beginning of the filming process - which is apparently ahead of schedule than what we initially heard about. See more about it below!

Bailee dished about her upcoming role in the movie Bumblebee, which is a spin-off to Transformers.

“So it is the spinoff to Transformers and we start shooting in a couple of weeks,” she said.

How is she preparing for the role? Binge-watching all the movies as a point of reference.

I have some hope but not high. This young lady at least has a little range in her acting ability. Take a look at True Grit (2010) and Edge of Seventeen (2016). As far as the story focusing on just a couple of bots...I'll believe it when I see it. I'm more hyped about the movie being set in 80s with 80s soundtrack and seeing Bee maybe in Volkswagen form before going 70s camaro on us. Let's see what Travis Knight can do with a most likely mediocre at best script. :POPCORN:

Bumblebee spin-off movie 2018. Let the rumour mill begin.

As previously seen in interviews reported here, the shooting for the next Paramount Transformers movie - the Bumblebee solo film - is indeed starting, as confirmed by lead actor Hailee Steinfeld on her Instagram account.

Image


But in more specifically rumour-ous news updates, Instagram users bi0z0_yt and arun09345 report what might be - though please note we don't actually know if any of this is confirmed - a first set of cars to be used in the movie production, in Virginia. The Bel Air (yellow) is not a Transformer, but a project car for Hailee Steinfeld's mechanic character, but the red car reportedly might be. Also rumoured were a director's chair with a Paramount logo and that the vehicles were shipped by trucks, as was also seen for The Last Knight. Check them out, grab your bags of salt, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub!

If these turn out to be real set pictures I'm absolutely loving the cars. I hope we get some really nice figures of these, it'd make a welcome change from the mostly modern cars we've been getting - maybe we can get Bee's original form in the first movie remade if we're especially lucky! That one and High Octane are honestly my favorite Bumblebee forms.

I'm curious if there's gonna be one! A week after The Last Knight I was thinking "huh...this movie didn't have a soundtrack...that's weird"

It probably will though. Hopefully if it does it does what Guardians of the Galaxy did which picked good music that matched scenes and tone and not Suicide Squad which just tossed songs in.

A Guardians of the Galaxy style soundtrack would actually be awesome if this movie is more character-based -- just a bunch of songs from the 80s which, as you said; reflect mood and tone. Usually I'd think this is asking too much of a Transformers movie but hey, new creative team; let's friggin' go.


And yeah, best not look at alt-modes and names and think we're gonna get an update of an old beloved character. The movies tend to just take those alt-modes and names and not care about who they were originally assigned to -- which I'd usually be annoyed about for an adaption but given that this franchise has been doing that since G2 even, it's just kind of something you get used to. Even characters who are supposed to be updates of their namesakes - Starscream, Bumblebee, Drift - aren't exactly like said namesakes beyond superficial traits.
So I'm fully expecting this red car to be Bumblebee's comic relief and tech expert friend Streetwise, with an uptight commanding officer who turns into a jet called Trailbreaker.

This, PLEASE!

I actually have very high hopes for this movie. The setting has a lot of potential, and doing something smaller and more character-driven in the time period the Transformers originally debuted in? So much potential. Just one thing: I thought this was going to be animated. Is that no longer the case?

Okay, so people are hoping the red Chevelle is Cliffjumper. Which I instantly want to reply, "HAVE YOU LEARNED NOTHING FROM THESE FILMS?? Bee, Optimus, and Megatron are the only G1 inspired Cybertronians. Soundwave is not a blue bank truck, Jazz is not a porsche 911 martini, and Ironhide is not a red SUV. GET USED TO IT!!"

Then I stop and think, "Wait, all of this is a spin off... that means, everything is starting new! Cliffjumper CAN be a red muscle car, and Sunstreaker CAN be a yellow Countach! Why should Marvel be the only Franchise allowed to have original inspired characters? Why CAN'T the Transformers look like the G1 style??"

Now some things are a little TOO Unrealistic, such as Hot Rod, but Cliffjumper? Mirage? Brawn? YESSSSSS!!!

I am getting really excited for this now! At least we don't have to wait another 3 years.

If the movies had a good design aesthetic (not wanting G1) I wouldn't mind. Instead we have designs that look like a cutlery drawer stood up. And, I'm not saying make it G1, I meant the style of actually making the robots easily recognisable instead of a mess of parts. Combine the real world look with the Transformers Prime aesthetic and it would be perfect. The Autobots are fairly easy to recognize in the movies but the Decepticons are just a mess on the screen. Look at Dark of the Moon, when Optimus does that run taking down Decepticons, besides Optimus, who was on the screen? Shockwave of course, but who else?

To throw the bayverse a bone, I actually did like Megatron in The Last Knight. He actually had a good design instead of the millions of shards look that he had in previous movies. Also version 1 Optimus Prime was good, but version 2 is just ugly.

If you fans think who do not like live action movies now you never will like live action movies with new director that does not have bay involved so give up on cartoon looking bots that you want them to look more cartoon and comic book and carrot it or move on bots will never change to look more cartoon style that trikeboy wants you want cartoon comic book looking bots stick with watching cartoons and reading comics accept change move on.

We should jump on it just because it isn't Michael Bay? Why? That logic is flawed. If Uwe Boll was making the Bumblebee movie would we all be expected to rally round and expect something fantastic? He isn't Michael Bay, lets give him support.

So don't criticise anything, just accept whatever we get no matter how bad it is even though we have constructive criticism and discussion on how the movies could make for a much better narrative experience. Got it. :roll:

*sigh* Can we PLEASE just keep it about the fucking Bumblebee movie and NOT another discussion about the pros/cons of Michael Bay?

FFS ... I don't know why after ten years this still continues to plague new threads.

Remember 90 percent of you fans wanted new director for transformers and bay not involved in any way so if 90 percent of you people don't like this solo movie that bay has no work with on this one who and will you fans blame if you don't like this solo movie that bay have no involvement in what so ever as I have been saying you don't like look of bots don't watch movie new director doesn't always mean movie will be better as also I have been saying for years new director for batman movie look batnippleson Robin costume Image .,


If you fans think who do not like live action movies now you never will like live action movies with new director that does not have bay involved so give up on cartoon looking bots that you want them to look more cartoon and comic book and carrot it or move on bots will never change to look more cartoon style that trikeboy wants you want cartoon comic book looking bots stick with watching cartoons and reading comics accept change move on.

Do we need to have a Seibertron-sponsored lesson in punctuation? Seriously, I'm no grammar nazi... but this took ten times longer than it should have to read, when you have to go back and read stuff again to understand it.

Maybe English isn't his first language or he is a kid.

You didn't have to be rude about it.

We have a new interview retreading some old ground concerning producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and a fairly spoiler-filled interview with Collider on Transformers: The Last Knight - but focusing even more so on the Bumblebee movie which has started shooting just recently.

If The Last Knight spoilers are your bread and butter, head here to our spoiler thread to discuss the movie itself, and keep watching the clip. If you'd rather avoid them, however, we've transcribed di Bonaventura's thoughts on Bumblebee below, once more repeating the Iron Giant parallels, and the 1985 setting and feel for the upcoming movie!


Check out what Lorenzo di Bonaventura had to say in the player above and below is exactly what we talked about followed by the official synopsis and a few images.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura:

How technology has advanced since the first film where the robots now look like they’ve gone from the Atari 2600 to a PlayStation 4
What 3D IMAX brings to the experience.
What was the most challenging part of making the film?
The film ends with [spoiler]. Where did the idea come from?
How much do they know about where the next film will go?
What can he say about the Bumblebee movie?


Image

“The objective of that movie is to develop more time with less robots, and to go back to 1985 and to go back to the original heritage, if you would, of the Transformers, G1.”

[...]

“So it has a very distinct idea in it, and whatever is going to happen with the chemistry is what’s going to happen. But it really is a young female lead [Hailee Steinfeld] opposite of Bumblebee, and I think that Optimus is going to be jealous that Bumblebee has his own movie.”


“There are less Transformers, dramatically less… We hired, purposely, Travis Knight who’s a very distinct filmmaker. You can’t compete with Michael [Bay], you’re going to lose. Also, the audience wants something different all the time, let’s keep them interested. So they’re going to get a very emotional, complex story. A very tight story, in terms of its location, in terms of its storytelling. In fact it reminds me a little bit of The Iron Giant when I did that movie at Warner Brothers. It just reminds me a little bit of that, where that it feels contained, but it doesn’t feel small.”

Should be interesting where this goes but if by some chance bumblebee does transform into volkswagon his size in bot mode would have to be altered little bit bee was normally Cameros which are big medium size cars and volkswagon are half size of cameros bumblebee tranform into volkswagon would be size of arcee or skids and mudflap we would have more bots if bay was still director but fans wanted new director told you so it came back get you with answer you wouldn't like bat nipples on batman costume in batman sequel with director for those sequels, we have new director we get less bots,.

I will hold out judgement until I see trailer like to see decpeticon in this movie instead fighting humans

So far, the only casting news we had of the Bumblebee spinoff film was Hailee Steinfeld as the female lead. Well now we know the male lead as well and it will be Jorge Lendeborg Jr. You can currently see this young actor in Spider-Man Homecoming as Jason. 2018 is a pretty busy year for him where you will also find him in Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and Alita: Battle Angel. This news broke through the Hollywood Reporter.
