John Cena Lands A Lead Role In TRANSFORMERS Spinoff BUMBLEBEE
According to The Hollywood Reporter, John Cena has landed a lead role in the Transformers spinoff film Bumblebee.
Cena joins Hailee Steinfeld who is leading the cast of Paramount’s new film, which will center on the yellow and black bot Bumblebee. The film will also star Jorge Lendeborg, Jason Drucker, Abby Quinn, Rachel Crow, Ricardo Hoyos and Gracie 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 most recent installment, Transformers: The Last Knight, has made $568.9 million globally.
The first Transformers spinoff film will hit theaters on December 21, 2018, which is interesting since that’s the same day DC Films Aquaman.
