Bumblebee, the Transformers spin-off, starring John Cena, is set for release on December 21, 2018. As the film began production on Monday in California, Cena has officially joined the cast. The WWE star has nabbed a lead role in the film which features a mostly young cast, including Jorge Lendeborg and Jason Drucker. Travis Knight is directing the film, from a script by Christina Hodson.
The film, also starring Hailee Steinfeld, will be up against Aquaman and other yet untitled films from Fox and James Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment. While the animated Spider-Man movie will also release a week before Bumblebee, Mary Poppins Returns will open in theatres five days after the film premieres.
