Based on the plans shared by both Hasbro and Paramount, a solo Bumblebee spin-off movie was slated to release in 2018 following the 2017 Transformers: The Last Knight. 2019 was to treat fans with Transformers 6 for a total 3-Year Back-To-Back Transformers Movies.
… and we have new info!
Deadline Hollywood, known for its exclusive (and accurate) scoops, is revealing that the Bumblebee Spinoff Movie Script is finalized and ready to be made into a movie. Paramount is now looking for new directors to work on the project.
“Paramount Pictures is getting closer to liftoff on Bumblebee, the first spinoff of its billion dollar Transformers franchise, this one based on a popular character in the series. The studio finally has a script it’s sweet on, and will shortly go out to directors. This comes after Paramount and Michael Bay assembled a “writers room” constructed of his scribes who fleshed out the Hasbro universe. A late addition to that program, Christina Hodson, is the scribe who cracked the spinoff and turned in a script that will make it possible for Paramount to mount the film for 2018. Hodson was one of two female writers (Lindsey Beer was the other) who joined a group of male scribes in the writers room in summer 2015, as they set out to hatch ideas to expand the mythology of the universe.”
