I really hope this pre-production comes to fruition because it has been confirmed that Judd Apatow is working with Paul Reubens to bring a new Pee-Wee movie to the big screen.
The confirmation of the partnership was announced today by Apatow’s publicist, noting that he’s working directly with Pee Wee Herman (Reubens).
Reuben’s who is co-writing the movie says it’s “an on-the-road movie built around a big adventure.” Yeah we know it sounds like Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure and apparently that’s the vibe Reubens is going for.
I’ve always liked the slightly darker aspects of Pee-Wee movies and with the comedic director of Superbad, The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up at the helm, hopefully some of those themes will be presented in a more in your face fashion.
Welcome back Pee-Wee!
