Pee-Wee’s Next Adventure Has Found A Home At Netflix

Paul Reubens, Pee wee Herman

Pee-Wee Herman made a welcome return to the stage in The Peewee Herman Show on Broadwaywinning over critics and fans alike. This reignited plans to make the long-gestating feature length follow-up to 1988s Big-Top Pee-wee, with Judd Apatow producing. Since initially announced a year ago, the script has underwent numerous revisions and now it seems they are ready to start shooting soon (although we have been hearing that they have been ready to start shooting throughout the year, so we remain slightly skeptical). One thing is a dead certain however – the Pee-Wee Herman movie will be a Netflix production; with exclusivity most likely being confined to the streaming service. (more…)

Pee-Wee-Herman

The Nerd Bastards site and Facebook page blew up last week when Paul Reubens announced that another Pee Wee Herman movie was in the works. Fans have been waiting a long time and the talk of another movie was beginning to take on a Ghostbuster 3 vibe, meaning that we’d hear a lot of sporadic talk for the last three years, but nothing would ever happen. Reubens made an appearance on the The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night to talk more about the movie and drop a couple more important details. (more…)

USE FIRST

People who know me well say that I spend too much time living in the past. I’m discerning about today’s music, but if anything from the 80’s pops up on the radio, I’m blasting it. My favorite TV show of all time is ‘Tales Of The Gold Monkey,’ so the recent troubles of Stephen Collins kinda put me in a weird place. That’s a serious mistake that he’ll never recover from. Other folks are luckier than that. Time heals a lot of wounds, and when some people are done paying, they get another chance to shine above regretful choices. It’s usually several years later, but the beauty in that gives overly nostalgic idiots like myself a chance to relive treasured times. Paul Reubens aka Pee-wee Herman is one of the lucky ones. And sometimes luck is better than a time machine. (more…)

New Pee-wee Herman Flick Closer to Reality?

It’s been quite a long time since childhood icon, Pee-wee Herman last made an appearance on the big screen. It’s been 25 years, in fact, with Big-Top Pee-wee being the last installment back in 1988. So what’s a Paul Reubens to do? Well, the rumors have been circulating and the pot boiling for a couple of years now about a return to the franchise and now Judd Apatow, the producer linked to the film, has something new (if not completely astounding) to say.

If there’s one series that should never have stopped, it’s the Pee-Wee Herman franchise.  Okay, I speak with a slight bit of sarcasm, but there are seriously people that loved that shit.  It’s been quite a while since Pee-Wee has reared his head in the media world and Paul Reubens, having little else to do with himself these days, has been working hard to get something going.  Now, it looks like the Pee-Wee madness is about to start.

Reubens made the official announcement that the new Pee-Wee Herman movie is ready to go.  The script is done, the money is secured and the director is signed.  Unfortunately, he hasn’t said anything about who that director is.  Or pretty much anything else at all, really, aside from the fact that we should expect the new flick to begin filming next year.

That would make 2014 a booming year for the mega-fans of Pee-Wee, since it looks like they’re also putting together a new Pee-Wee TV show and that one is slotted to begin airing next year.

The Return of the Reubens is upon us folks, so prepare thyselves.

 

Thanks to /Film for the heads-up.

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?
