The next Pee-Wee film

The beloved man-child with a red bowtie and funny laugh, Pee-Wee Herman is coming back to the big screen. “Boy, I sure hope [it gets made]. Yeah, we’re going to [dot it]. “I’m going to make a movie based on my kids show. Based on ‘Pee Wee’s Playhouse.’” ,said Paul Reubens energetically in character as Pee-Wee.

If you were a little one in the 80's like myself, your Saturday morning was not complete without PEE-WEE'S PLAYHOUSE. While I'm still bitching to my Mom that I never got my own Chairy, I am pleased to hear about another Pee-Wee movie. There are lot of fans who loved the first movie, PEE-WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE which was directed by Tim Burton and released in 1985. As for the second movie in 1988 that was directed by Randal Kleiser, BIG TOP PEE-WEE wasn't as popular. I loved it. It had Kris Kristofferson, which didn't mean a lot then when I was four but now it's pretty f*cking sweet.

While the movie will have Playhouse in the title, it actually takes place outside of the playhouse in Puppetland. What an acid trip that could possibly be. The question is, will Tim Burton come back to direct? Or will they let someone knew take the reigns? Watch the video below to hear more from Reubens on the project.
