A full blown two and a half decades since his last cinematic outing it sounds like Pee-Wee Herman will soon be chewing up screen time all over again. ComingSoon.net caught up with Paul Ruebens (the characters slightly less obnoxious alter-ego) and squeezed out some details on the project.
“…It’s going great. We have a meeting this coming week. We just did a very quick little rewrite on it. As far as I know it’s getting shot very soon.”
A little over two years ago, news floated out that that a third Pee-Wee movie would be made, with Ruebens writing the the screenplay with Paul Rust and Judd Apatow producing. So, why the 2 year silence on the project?
“I actually wasn’t supposed to talk about it initially, I was talking about it in this very veiled, secret way going, ‘Oh, I wish I could talk about it.’ …It got leaked about six months to a year before it was supposed to.”
Which… is probably about 20 years to late. Now, before you start with the hate let me explain. I have nothing against Pee-Wee Herman, his playhouse, or the fact that he has a talking chair. Hell, I want a talking chair. I just question if this is a good idea. Do we need a new Pee-Wee movie? Do we have loose ends to tie up? Is this just another nostalgia based cash grab? Can they get Laurence Fishburne to come back as Cowboy Curtis?

In this months Playboy Pee Wee got the Huge interview spread and finally opened up after all these years.
On his public masturbation charge: In the event of a trial (which never happened), an expert researcher was going to testify he’d never seen a person masturbate with a nondominant hand. “I’m right-handed, and the police report said I was jerking off with my left hand. That would have been the end of the case right there, proof it couldn’t have been me.”
The most disturbing thing about this entire article is the pics of him as his a nearly 60 year old man!! He has remained almost entirely the same for all these years, he was born in 1952! The article is astounding for anyone who was a fan of Pee-Wee. Right here is all the info on his return to the stage! For only a 10-week run, I gotta be the first in line!! Here’ some show info, click on the Link in the paragraph to find tickets!!!;
Big, bold and uniquely fabulous, The Pee-wee Herman Show is a stage play with music that reunites Pee-wee (the one-and-only Paul Reubens) with the beloved Playhouse gang – Miss Yvonne, Mailman Mike, Cowboy Curtis, Jambi the Genie, Pterri, Conky, Chairry and many more! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Pee-wee’s Playhouse come to wacky, unpredictable life!
