Transformers 6 is set to be a Bumblebee spin-off film.
Paramount Pictures chairman and CEO Brad Grey talked to The Hollywood Reporter about plans for the next three Transformers flicks, confirming the popular yellow Autobot will get his own lower-budget movie in 2018.
“There are characters in the Transformers universe that can be and should be made into their own movies,” he said. “We will make the first movie with Michael
and go right into a Bumblebee movie, which will be at a lower cost.”
There have been talks of a Bumblebee spinoff dating back to last May, but this is the first official announcement of the Transformers movie franchise branching off. Bay is returning to direct Transformers 5, but there’s no word on who will helm Transformers 6 and 7.
