Paramount is slated to release Bumblebee on June 8, 2018.
Quinn co-stars alongside Jenny Slate, Edie Falco and John Turturro in Gillian Robespierre’s Landline, which will be released on July 21 after premiering at Sundance earlier this year. Between that film and Bumblebee, she’s quickly becoming a young actress to watch.
