Principal photography has commenced this week on Paramount Pictures' Transformers first spin-off, Bumblebee. The film’s shoot will take place entirely in California, including in Southern and Northern California.
 
Directed by Travis Knight (Coraline), the film stars Hailee Steinfeld, Pamela Adlon, John Cena, Stephen Schneider, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Jason Drucker, Kenneth Choi, Ricardo Hoyos, Abby Quinn, Rachel Crow, and Grace Dzienny.
 
On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge 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.
 
The film is produced by Transformersfranchise veterans Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Michael Bay, along with executive producers Steven Spielberg, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian. The screenplay is written by Christina Hodson (Unforgettable).

Bumblebee is slated to hit theaters on December 18, 2018 (up against Aquaman).
