Everyone’s favorite Transformers character (or at least our favorite Autobot) is getting its own starring role come 2018. That’s right, Paramount Pictures has confirmed a spin-off film featuring Bumblebee the Camaro as the main role.
CarScoops first reported on the news, stating the film focusing solely on Bumblebee will be released following Transformers 5 in 2017. Paramount stated a June 8, 2018 release for the spin-off film.
That means, Chevrolet and the film team are likely well underway in creating a new iteration of Bumblebee for the Autobot’s close-up. Bumblebee has taken the form of a custom fifth-generation Camaro, a classic first-generation Camaro and the most recent, modern interpretation of the classic pony car.
The report states no human cast has been announced thus far for the spin-off, but it will be interesting to see how the film transpires. After all, there’s likely more than meets the eye.
