We heard the rumors that a new Pee-wee Herman movie was coming and now we know it’s real and, even better, when it will start shooting and who will be behind it. Yup, Pee-wee’s Big Holiday starts shooting in three weeks and will be produced by Reubens and the man behind those Anchorman quotes, Judd Apatow!
John Lee will make his directorial debut with Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, which follows our hero as he decides to take his first holiday after meeting a “mysterious stranger” that will set him on an adventure involving “friendship and destiny.”
The film, which will premiere on Netflix, has Apatow excited to finally work with Reubens and his alter ego -- two comedy titans, one hilarious movie!
“As a fan of Pee-wee Herman since he first appeared on The Dating Game, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the brilliant Paul Reubens on this film. It is a dream come true,” said Judd Apatow.
Pee-wee (through his real life alter ego Reubens) also added his two cents.
“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,” said Pee-wee Herman. “I’ve changed all that. The future is here. Get used to it. Bowtie is the new black.”
Apatow has quite a few great comedies, and many are on the below slideshow of comedies we could watch again and again and again!
