As long as this is closer to Pee Wee’s Big Adventure and a decided departure from 1988′s ill fated Big Top Pee-Wee I think we’ll be in fairly decent shape. Paul Reubens is claiming that an official announcement regarding a new Pee-Wee Herman movie is almost incredibly f*cking nigh. This is excellent news considering the fact that it’s been well over two years since our last update on the project. Given the fact that Reubens sounded optimistic then (though not quite this optimistic), let’s hope there’s a bit more going on than last time around.
There’s no word on if Judd Apatow is still involved or if they are using any of the script that he worked on, but I’m hoping there’s a strong steward aboard either way because I don’t want my Pee-Wee ship sailing rudderless. Hit the jump for more on the new Pee-Wee Herman movie.
