Hailee Steinfeld To Join Bumblebee Movie?

Variety is reporting that Hailee Steinfeld is negotiating to lead the cast of the Transformers: Bumblebee movie. The actress from Pitch Perfect 2, Edge of Seventeen, Ender's Game was also nominated for an Oscar for True Grit and currently working on a singing career. Suffice it to say the casting would result in a movie focused on her character which The Hollywood Reporter said would be a "tomboy who also holds a job as a mechanic after school." The movie is rumored to be set in the 80s with a smaller budget (so probably around $100 million) then the main Transformers films (~$200 million each). The movie is set for a June 8, 2018 release date from a script by Christina Hodson (Shut In) with director Travis Knight (Kubo and the Two Strings).

  1. Since this one is NOT being directed by Bay, it has a chance to be good.

    After skipping the odious turd stank that "The Last Knight" is sure to be (even the title sounds stupid), I will finally get the non-Bay Transformers film I have been longing for. Hopefully, a better director (which isn't saying much because 95% of directors are better than Bay), will make all the difference.
