In an interview today with MTV Movies Blog, Pee-Wee Herman (aka Paul Reubens) confirmed that he’s finished a script for Pee-Wee’s Playhouse: The Movie and is hoping to get it made. I’m sure that the millions of fans of Tim Burton’s Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure as well as the TV series of Pee-Wee’s Playhouse are hoping for the same thing. To help get it made, Pee-Wee is about to debut a live multimedia stage production and if it goes well he’s hoping that moviegoers will want to go back to the Playhouse.
The PG-movie has Pee-Wee and his friends, including Jambi the Genie and Magic Screening, venturing out into the world when one of their own goes missing (if it’s his bike I’m going to say Pee-Wee should consider getting a car or at least a Vespa). However, unlike Big Adventure, this isn’t Pee-Wee in the real world.
“It’s not really the real world, it’s Puppetland. On ‘Pee Wee’s Playhouse,’ on the television series we never left the playhouse, we were always inside the playhouse. The movie is all out of the playhouse,” he revealed. “There are two scenes in the playhouse, but the rest is out of the playhouse.”
So the script is done, the premise sounds solid, they want to get it made, so in the immortal words of Mr. Pee-Wee Herman, “Fork it over.”
