It seems that Paramount Pictures still continues with new projects for the franchise Transformers!
According to the producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, the studio really works in a sequence to Bumblebee, released at the end of last year, and a new film within the franchise Transformers that will take place after the events seen in Transformers: The Last Knight.
It is not known if director Michael Bay would return for the next film, after all, many critics and fans claim that the formula created by Bay during the more than 5 films has already sold out. Bumbleebee, as we said in our review at the time (read the link below), it has an air of novelty.
Di Bonaventura, in an interview for a Japanese website, says that the next Bumbleebee will have the presence of Optimus Prime.
“We already have two projects with scripts ready in development. One accompanies the general franchise and the other a sequel to Bumblebee. ” says the producer.
Much of the success of Bumblebee, mainly with criticism, happened to the fact of the direction of Travis Knight and the script Christina Hodson.
The plot takes place in 1987 where Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small coastal town in California. Charlie (Haille Steinfeld) has just turned 18 and tries to find his place in the world, when he discovers Bumblebee, broken and with marks of war. When Charlie revives him, she quickly discovers that the yellow VW Beetle has nothing in common.
In addition to Steinfeld are in the cast of the film John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Jason Drucker (diary of a Wimpy Kid), Ricardo Hoyos (The Belko Experiment), and Gracie Dzienny (Chasing Life).
