All Hail Jambi!
It looks like we'll be getting a new Pee Wee Herman movie soon...
Some 30 years after he first brought his bow-tied eternal boy character Pee-wee Herman to movie screens in the superb Tim Burton-directed Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, Paul Reubens will be reviving the character in a movie for Netflix.
The streaming service has announced it will release globally Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, a film that producer Judd Apatow has been cooking up with Reubens for some time. Reubens and Paul Rust wrote the script, and making his feature directing debut is John Lee, whose credits include Inside Amy Schumer (with whom Apatow teams on the upcoming comedy Trainwreck).
His recent Pee Wee Herman Show on Broadway was pretty entertaining and, surprisingly, it looked like he hadn't aged a day.
So...this could be entertaining.
