Pee-Wee's Big Holiday starring Paul Reubens goes into production next month
We've been hearing about the return of Paul Reubens as Pee-wee Herman for some time now, and it looks like shit's finally getting real next month! The next Pee-Wee Herman film, PEE-WEE'S BIG HOLIDAY, goes into production in March and will premiere exclusively on Netflix. Judd Apatow, who has been working behind the scenes to bring this project to fruition, will be producing the flick. Reubens wrote the film with Paul Rust (Arrested Development) and John Lee will be making his directorial debut.
Paul Reubens had this to say of the film:
Judd and I dreamt up this movie four years ago. The world was much different back then — Netflix was waiting by the mailbox for red envelopes to arrive. I’ve changed all that. The future is here. Get used to it. Bowtie is the new black.
PEE-WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE was a staple of my youth and holds up surprisingly well today. If Reubens, Apatow and Co. can capture some of that lightning with BIG HOLIDAY, we could have a hell of a comedy on our hands. The fact that it's going straight to Netflix just means less waiting time. Sounds great to me! As always, Netflix seems to be on top of the original content game.
PEE-WEE'S BIG HOLIDAY goes into production this March.
