Paul Reubens Gives PEE WEE HERMAN Movie Update and Teases New Projects
Thanks to Collider, we have an update on the upcoming Pee Wee Herman movie straight from Pee Wee himself, Paul Reubens. The film is being produced by Judd Apatow, and when Reuben was asked about the status of it he had this to say:
It’s going great! We have a meeting this coming week, and we just did a very quick little rewrite on it. As far as I know, it’s getting shot very soon. I actually wasn’t supposed to talk about it, initially. I was talking about it in this very veiled, secretive way, saying, “Oh, I wish I could talk about it.” A journalist figured out that it was Judd Apatow that I was talking about because my writing partner was in the audience and he’s written so much with Judd. So, it got leaked about six months to a year before it was supposed to. I’ve been warned not to talk about any of my new projects, but that I can talk about because I blew it and it’s out. It’s even on IMDB now. So, that’s supposedly any minute. Right after that, I’m following that up with two incredibly exciting projects. I would give anything to be able to just brag to you right now and drop some names, but I can’t.
So I guess we can expect something to happen soon! It sounds like Reubens is going to make a big comeback, which must be very exciting for him. I'm looking forward to seeing how this new Pee Wee movie turns out, as well as the other projects he has lined up. Reuben has recently worked on the new Disney animated series Tron: Uprising in which he voices a character named Pavel, General Tesler’s untrustworthy base commander.
How excited are you to see Pee Wee Herman back up on the big screen?
