Pee-wee Herman & Judd Apatow: Movie In The Works!

Pee-wee Herman will be back on the big screen again in a Judd Apatow produced new film.

According to Variety, Paul Reubens, who plays Pee-wee, is writing the new script with Inglourious Basterds writer Paul Rust.

The new film will be produced under Judd‘s production company Apatow Prods. Previously, Judd helped produce comedy films such as Knocked Up, Superbad, and Get Him To the Greek.

The pair reportedly teamed up after Judd saw Paul‘s live The Pee-wee Herman Show earlier in the year.

“Let’s face it, the world needs more Pee-wee Herman,” Judd told Variety. “I am so excited to be working with Paul Reubens — who is an extraordinary and ground-breaking actor and writer. It’s so great to watch him return with such relevance.”
