We. Are. So. Excited. There is going to be another Pee Wee Herman movie made, which will be produced by Judd Apatow‘s production company! Oh, how our childhood was molded by Pee Wee’s first adventure, traveling across these great United States in search of his bicycle, all the while discovering the Alamo doesn’t have a basement and trying not to get clobbered by Simone’s boyfriend Andy at the Dino Park.
Paul Reubens revived the Pee Wee character for a stage show which has been performing to sold out audiences in L.A. this year (and will come to New York in the fall). Apatow took in one of the performances and got the idea for a new movie, saying “Let’s face it, the world needs more Pee-wee Herman. I am so excited to be working with Paul Reubens — who is an extraordinary and ground-breaking actor and writer. It’s so great to watch him return with such relevance.” The love is mutual, as Reubens seems equally thrilled to partner with Apatow, saying “There is no one like Judd in our business — he loves comedy with emotion and heart, and he sees what we do as art. I can’t believe I’m getting this opportunity to be working with him.” This can’t happen fast enough, in our opinion. The real question though is will evil bike thief Francis Buxton return??
