Principal Photography Begins on Bumblebee

Principal Photography Begins on Bumblebee
Paramount Pictures has announced that they have begun principal photography on "Bumblebee", which is being directed by Travis Knight.

"Bumblebee" takes place in 1987, where we find the bot hiding out in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee 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. 

Aside from Steinfeld, the film stars Pamela Adlon ("BETTER THINGS,""LOUIE"), John Cena ("DADDY'S HOME 2," "TRAINWRECK"), Stephen Schneider (Comedy Central's "BROAD CITY"), Jorge Lendeborg Jr. ("SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING"), Jason Drucker ("DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE LONG HAUL"), Kenneth Choi ("AMERICAN CRIME STORY"), Ricardo Hoyos ("DEGRASSI: NEXT CLASS"), Abby Quinn ("LANDLINE," "THE SISTERHOOD OF THE NIGHT"), Rachel Crow ("DEIDRA & LANEY ROB A TRAIN"), and Grace Dzienny ("ZOO"). 

Michael Bay and Lorenzo di Bonaventura ("TRANSFORMERS" Franchise) will be producing the film with  Steven Spielberg, Brian Goldner, Mark Vahradian and Chris Brigham.  The screenplay is written by Christina Hodson ("UNFORGETTABLE").

"Bumblebee" is slated for a December 21, 2018 release.
