Paramount Sets 2018 Release Date For BUMBLEBEE Spin-Off Movie
Gird your loins, because after Paramount set up a writers' room last year, the studio has enough Transformers story ideas to generate enough movies to last them for the next ten years. That's bad news for those of us who think this series is little more than a nightmarish gnashing of metal with terrible stereotypes and sad attempts at humor thrown in. The good news, though, is that next year's Transformers 5 is apparently the last of these movies that Michael Bay will direct, and with him out and a new batch of writers crafting stories around these characters, there's a chance the series could improve drastically in the coming years.
We knew that their next effort was going to be setting up a Bumblebee spin-off movie, and now Deadline reports that the studio has set a release date for it: June 8, 2018. And there's more positive news: this script was written by Christina Hodson, one of the two female writers the studio hired for its writers' room efforts. In a traditionally male-dominated area of filmmaking, it'll be fascinating to see how Hodson's script stacks up to her counterparts and if she can inject some much-needed quality into this cinematic universe.
