Deidra & Laney Rob a Train star Rachel Crow is in talks for Bumblebee
Deidra & Laney Rob a Train star Rachel Crow is in talks for a key role in the Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, according to Tracking Board. Jorge Lendeborg Jr. (Spider-Man: Homecoming, the upcoming Brigsby Bear) was recently cast opposite Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit, The Edge of Seventeen) in the upcoming Paramount Pictures film.
Bumblebee has been a fan favorite since he was first introduced. He transforms from a Volkswagen Beetle in the earlier versions of the character. In the Transformers Cinematic Universe, he transforms into a Chevrolet Camaro. The character most recently appeared in Transformers: The Last Knight, starring Mark Wahlberg, Jerrod Carmichael, Isabela Moner, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins, Laura Haddock, Santiago Cabrera, Liam Garrigan and Stanley Tucci. The Bumblebee movie is reportedly a prequel to the Bay franchise, however, and will tell the story of the fan-favorite Autobot in the 1980s.
