PeeWee is BACK!
Supposedly....soon anyway....According to Variety, Judd Apatow has signed on to produce the next big Pee Wee film....it is untitled at the moment. Apparently Judd saw Paul Ruebens' stage show in LA, which was sold out every night and decided it was time to re-introduce Pee Wee back into the world and to a whole new generation. Here's what Apatow had to say about it, “"Let's face it, the world needs more Pee-wee Herman," he said. "I am so excited to be working with Paul Reubens—who is an extraordinary and groundbreaking actor and writer. It's so great to watch him return with such relevance." Now, I adore Judd Apatow and I love his work and the entire genre of films he has produced and/or directed, including his entry into Hollywood with Freaks & Geeks. So, I'm going to go out on a limb and trust him. However, I will say that while I LOVED the Saturday Morning Pee Wee's Playhouse....I HATED Pee Wee's Big Adventure...anyone remember the scene with the clown doctors and his bike that was stolen? #1 reason I have a fear of clowns. Scared the s**t out of me. We shall see what happens.
