Rising star Jorge Lendeborg in talks for another big project: He'll play the young male lead in Paramount's Transformers spinoff Bumblebee. Lendeborg Jr. joins Steinfeld as a tomboy that holds a job as a mechanic after school who forms a connection with the lovable fan favorite Autobot. Christina Hodson (Shut In) wrote the script.

The movie project is the first spin-off 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 more than $3.7 billion worldwide.

Paramount needs Bumblebee to be a real hit for them as Transformers: The Last Knight - from the same group of writers that came up with the idea for the Bumblebee movie - has tanked pretty bad and is the worst performing Transformers movie ever.
