This project is being produced under the working title of “Brighton Falls”. “Bumblebee” will shoot entirely in California due to a $22-million tax credit.

Also joining the cast in a lead role is Jorge Lendeborg Jr., who recently starred in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie “Spider-Man: Homecoming”. Additional cast members include Pamela Adlon,
Gracie Dzienny, Ricardo Hoyos, Abby Quinn, Jason Drucker, and Stephen Schneider.

Producers are Directors Guild of America DGA Award winner Michael Bay, Daytime Emmy Award winner Stephen Davis, and Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America Nebula Award nominee Tom DeSanto.
