According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Pitch Perfect star is interested in staring in Bumblebee, the Transformers spin-off. It looks like the actress is looking to expand her horizons. If Optimus Prime isn’t your favorite Transformers, chances are, Bumblebee is. In case you don’t know, Bumblebee is, of course, a yellow and black stripped transformer that only recently got it’s voice back. Bumblebee will be directed by Travis Knight, instead of Michael Bay. Bay will be a producer on the movie. Knight previously directed Kubo and the Two Strings.
Nothing has been confirmed yet. The writer for Bumblebee is Christina Hodson. Hodson co-wrote Unforgettable and Shut In. There currently isn’t a plot of the movie yet, but I’ll be on the lookout for it. Bumblebee is the first of many spin-offs in the Transformers Cinematic Universe. Bumblebee is set to come out June 8, 2018.
Hailee is repped by CAA.
