WWE Wrestler John Cena has revealed that he enjoyed filming for the Transformers spin-off Bumblebee.

The Wrestling icon has landed a major role in the movie and will star alongside Hailee Steinfeld.

The film is set in the year 1987 and features Steinfeld playing the character of Charlie, a young soon to be 18-year-old woman who discovers Bumblebee in a battered state.

However, she soon discovers what it is capable of.

The movie will be produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Michael Bay- the two men who directed the last five Transformers movies, along with executive producers Steven Spielberg, Brian Goldner, Mark Vahradian and Chris Brigham.

Cena said: “You have to be dramatic with a stick. In the WWE, we call it working with a broomstick. You can get in there and have a match with a broomstick. I think it’s just a different method to tell stories. That’s what I enjoy most. Do I love to laugh? Yes! But what I enjoy most is to be able to use your imagination to tell a story. So, it was a different challenge, but I loved it. I hope everybody sees that and they dig it.”
