That image has nothing to do with the movie. That van is a fan-owned customized van.

According to the Times Herald Online, who were able to talk to Jonathan JJ Hook - the supervising location manager a co-producer for Transformers Universe: Bumblebee - about what goes into finding the right location to shoot a movie, and some more details about his approach to movie-making in general. Find out some snippets below, and the whole piece here!

For “Bumblebee,” a spin-off of the Michael Bay franchise “Transformer” movies, plenty of it is in Vallejo. This week on Mare Island, count on evenings with helicopters, special effects and pyrotechnics, followed by two days of downtown action.

The supervising location manager and co-producer oversees around 15 people on his team, though he’s handled movies orchestrated as many as 50 others working simultaneously in numerous states and countries.

It’s not a job for the timid, said Hook, a Los Angeles resident and native of England.

“You are dealing with change and pressure,” he said. “But if you’re creative and have a good imagination, you can climb the ranks quickly.”

Hook started as a personal assistant in England doing a period piece that included a shipwreck.

“My job was running out with blankets, tea and coffee,” Hook said.

[...]

It wasn’t difficult to create exactly what was needed in town here, Hook said.

“Vallejo has got great bones,” he said of the town’s infrastructure. “It’s an Anywhere America, Back-to-the-Future type vibe. The great thing about Vallejo is there aren’t these huge chain stores. There a few other cities in California like it, but not that many. The city hasn’t been turned into a strip mall.”

Mare Island’s drydocks have been perfect for “Bumblebee,” said Hook.

So good, he noted, “the ending of the movie was re-written after finding the location.”

Given that Sector 7 knew of Megatron and he had been in the Hoover dam since 1933 or something like that, it makes sense they would be involved. Wonder if we'll see a little Simmons, like as a kid or something, and Bee is what convinces him to go crazy and join S7

Why would anyone think that he wouldn't keep his normal head in this movie?

KSBW Action News 8 ran a piece on the upcoming Bumblebee movie headed to Santa-Cruz for principle filming. The extras that were previously sought have all been cast and you can see the video below for interviews with these extras. As said in the casting call, these extras will be wearing 80s themed clothes mainly as surfers, skaters and hippies.

Instagram has plenty of on set images of the upcoming Bumblebee film currently being filmed in Vallejo, California. The town has been turned into an 80s setting with shop fronts being changed. We also see the name of this town being called Brighton Falls, which explains why this is the code name for this film's shoot. And most interesting of all is our first shot of a yellow Volkswagon Beetle showing us what we all hope is Mmvie Bumblebee finally getting his G1 alt mode in the movie verse.

Enjoy!

A mural in Vallejo California has been painted over during the filming of he upcoming live-action Bumblebee movie. This mural called Vallejo Rising was painted over due to a miscommunication between Paramount and the building manager. Lorenzo di Bonaventura, a producer on this film, had the following to say: “I’m sorry about this, we will do as much as we can do to replace the mural — this was really unfortunate".

With them using a VW, I wonder if he'll use his standard movie transformation scheme, which the early IDW comics used as the basis for his design
