What's most surprising -- it's coming via Judd Apatow.
Variety reports that Apatow is developing a feature for Universal, which Reubens is currently writing with the help of Paul Rust (star of I Love You, Beth Cooper and scribe for shows like Jimmy Fallon). The still-untitled project will be a road pic centered around "a gigantic adventure," and considering the title of his last feature in '85, I'll go out on a limb and say there's a good chance this puppy will be called Pee-wee's Gigantic Adventure. Apatow doesn't plan to direct the film himself, but he is eager to get it made: "Let's face it, the world needs more Pee-wee Herman. 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."
I have to say, while Hollywood is currently drowning us in 1984 remakes, it's nice to see one where the star returns. Viva la Pee-wee!
But how about you? Are you ready for a gigantic adventure with Monsieur Herman?
