“Kubo” Helmer To Direct “Bumblebee” Movie

“Kubo and the Two Strings” helmer and LAIKA Studios CEO Travis Knight is set to make his live-action directorial debut on the “Transformers” spin-off “Bumblebee”.

The story will focus on the popular character who has appeared in all of Michael Bay’s “Transformers” films, but further plot specifics are unknown.

Knight beat out contenders such as Chris McKay, Jaume Collet-Sera, Rick Famuyiwa, Seth Gordon, and the Nee Brothers for the gig says Borys Kit.

Christina Hudson penned the script while Bay, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, and Steven Spielberg are producing.

Understandably this raises the obvious question of what this means, if anything, for LAIKA? It’s wait and see for the moment.
