Bad news, Autobot fans. Paramount Pictures has officially dropped the seventh Transformers movie from its release schedule, a studio spokesperson has confirmed to SYFY WIRE.

Rumors had been circulating since February that Transformers 7 would not be seeing the light of screen next year. But now, it’s official. The film was originally set for release on June 28, 2019. Instead, the studio will release the Tiffany Haddish comedy Limited Partners on that date. (Separately, Paramount’s revised release schedule also shows that the Pet Sematary remake/re-adaptation, which was previously scheduled to open April 19, 2019, is now set to hit theatres two weeks earlier, on April 5, 2019.)

Now, chin up, Transformers fans. All is not lost. Paramount will still open the spinoff film Bumblebee (which we’re counting as the sixth Transformers film) this year on Dec. 21.

The Transformers film franchise has been up in the air recently. Michael Bay, who directed the first five films, has been eyeing an exit (he’s only producing the Bumblebee prequel spinoff; Travis Knight is directing). Last year’s installment, Transformers: The Last Knight, performed the weakest of the series, raking in only $605 million globally (only!). And rumors were floating around earlier this year that the Transformers film franchise was slated for a total reboot (which was later denied — sort of — by the Transformers brand manager).

A spokesperson from Paramount didn’t comment on what this means for the film or for the franchise beyond confirming the studio’s revised release schedule. So, we don’t know if this means the film has been scrapped altogether or merely postponed. (Information is scant on where the film is in terms of production.)

Niall Horan and Hailee Steinfeld are going strong.

The budding couple were spotted on a low-key date on Sunday at Los Angeles hot spot E.P. & L.P. and showed off some subtle P.D.A.

“Niall had his arm around Hailee and they were holding hands,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE exclusively. “They definitely looked like a couple.”

The entertainers sparked romance rumors in February when they were spotted singing and dancing together at a Backstreet Boys show, but a source told PEOPLE at the time the actress, 21, was newly single and not ready to jump into a new relationship.

“She’s not actively pursuing anything. Niall is really into her but she’s unsure if she wants to get into something new right away,” said the source.

The “Slow Hands” singer, 24, however, seems to have won her over.

In December, the former One Direction singer gushed about the star on Instagram for her birthday, calling her the “loveliest person on the planet and one of my best friends.”

YouTube Red is looking to add some teen angst to its lineup.

The streaming platform’s subscription service has handed out a pilot production commitment to a TV spinoff based on Hailee Steinfeld feature The Edge of Seventeen.

Based on the 2016 film from Robert Simonds’ STX Entertainment, Annabel Oakes (Amazon’s Transparent, Netflix’s Atypical) will pen the script for the potential series. Kelly Fremon Craig, who wrote, directed and produced the feature, is attached to exec produce the YouTube iteration.

Steinfeld, who earned a Golden Globe nomination, stars as Nadine, a teen outcast balancing strained relationships with her overly dramatic mother (Kyra Sedgwick) and her popular older brother (Blake Jenner), who begins dating Nadine’s best friend (Haley Lu Richardson). Woody Harrelson co-starred as a sympathizing high school teacher.

The YouTube comedy, while described as a spinoff, will feature an entirely new cast and follow a high school student and her best friend as they navigate the relationships, feelings and realities of being a teenage girl. YouTube says the series will “subvert standard teen show tropes.”

“Kelly Fremon Craig created an honest, hilarious and heartbreaking film with The Edge of Seventeen. It went beyond most teen movies, and was able to captivate an audience beyond those in high school,” YouTube head of comedy Dustin Davis said. “We’re excited to work with the entire team at STXtv and have Annabel and Kelly create a series for YouTube Red using themes from the film as inspiration.”

Released in November 2016 after premiering at the Toronto Film Festival, Edge of Seventeen went on to gross $18 million worldwide on a budget of $9 million. The film has a 95 percent rating among critics and an 83 percent score among moviegoers on RottenTomatoes.com. (THR’s Jon Frosch called it a “warm, winning teen-com.”

“At STX, an infrastructure was built that encourages all divisions to create engaging content that can live on any platform,” said Jada Miranda, STXtv exec vp and head of scripted television. “So when critics and audiences fell in love with the Edge of Seventeen film in 2016, we knew there was more story to tell and new ideas to explore, and from there the possibility of creating a TV version came to light. We worked closely with Kelly Fremon Craig to find a special writer like Annabel who could do just that. The YouTube audience is exactly who the original film was made for, which is why they’re the perfect fit to bring this incredibly funny and smart franchise to life.”

YouTube’s Edge of Seventeen is STXtv’s second scripted foray in the past six months, joining National Geographic’s miniseries Valley of the Boom, starring Bradley Whitford and Steve Zahn.

For YouTube Red, Edge of Seventeen marks the latest high-profile reboot to join the subscription service after Karate Kid sequel Cobra Kai, co-starring Ralph Macchio and William Zabka.

Hailee Steinfeld always knew that she wanted to sing. “I have been singing for as long as I can remember. I’m sure my parents would tell you the same,” she shares.

Her parents nurtured their daughter’s passion when she was seven and they bought her an amplifier and microphone. “Once they brought it home I believe they regretted that instantly,” says Steinfeld But I would set it up in front of the mirror at the bottom of our staircase. Every day I sang into this amplifier. The speaker would run throughout the house. And I would do it for hours and wouldn’t stop.”

Her repertoire was a medley of the last ten songs she had heard that day. She graduated to recording songs in a studio. One of the first songs she ever covered in the studio was “Count On Me” by Bruno Mars. “It was my first real introduction to being in a recording studio,” she says.

While Steinfeld was singing and recording cover songs, she had a parallel career. At same time, she was auditioning every day for acting gigs. Since she was eight she worked in commercials and on television. By the time she was 13, Steinfeld was cast as Mattie Ross in the Coen brothers western True Grit. She starred opposite Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and Barry Pepper. The role was a total breakthrough and Steinfeld was nominated for an Academy Award. “Acting became my full-time focus for a couple of years,” she explains. But the music muse never left her. “I realized, I really wanted to get into music,” she says.

As much as she wanted share her musical voice with the world, she was also mindful of the timing. “I wanted it to feel right. Obviously timing is everything. I thought, I would really love for it to happen through a film. I didn’t want it to be, here I am, a movie came out last week and now I’m dropping an album. I wanted it to make sense. It all ended up coming together,” says Steinfeld who starred in Pitch Perfect II and then released a cover version of the song Flashlight that she sang in the film. “I’m so glad that it came when it did because I couldn’t have been more ready. The music journey has been a whole crazy ride.”

The crazy ride continues as Steinfeld’s proverbial candle is burning from every possible end. She attributes her success to having fierce mentors. “I started my career with some of the most incredible people and I’ve had my parents to guide me the whole way,” she explains. “My mom is probably the best advice-giver.” (more…)
