Actress Hailee Steinfield has shared the very first picture of herself in costume on the set of the upcoming Bumblebee movie. Steinfeld will portray young Charlie Watson in the film, which began production this past weekend.
Set in 1987, the movie follows Charlie Watson, a 17 year old girl from a Californian beach town who is about to stumble upon the battle-scarred and broken Autobot known as Bumblebee - who's far from your average Volkswagen Beetle.
Travis Knight will direct from a script penned by Christina Hodson. Bumblebee is the first spinoff in what the studio hopes will be a Transformers Cinematic Universe that will include prequels and offshoots from a line of movies that have generated over 3.7-Billion across the globe.
Franchise veterans Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Michael Bay will produce, alongside executive producers Steven Spielberg, Brian Goldner, Chris Brigham and Mark Vahradian.
Starring Hailee Steinfield, Jorge Lendeborg, Jason Drucker, Abby Quinn, Rachel Crow, Ricardo Hoyos, Gracie Dzienny and John Cena, the Bumblebee movie opens on December 21st, 2018.
