Report: The new Pee Wee movie to be aimed at kids? Paul Reubens explains the plot…

Now that Judd Apatow has been named producer, Paul Reubens explains the plot for the next Pee Wee movie. Yes, it will be a “Playhouse” movie, but most of the movie will be taken place outside of the playhouse, in the outside world. It won’t be the real world like how we are living right now like “Big Adventure” was, but this movie will have characters mostly being puppets. There will only be two scenes in the, Playhouse.

So sounds like this will be a family friendly version of Pee Wee for kids and family?

More on it here:


In my opinion, the movie shouldn’t be aimed at kids. It should be aimed for audiences in their 20’s – 30’s. That’s how the age range was at the Pee Wee live shows in Los Angeles, I believe. Maybe this movie will still be aimed for adults, could be. Reubens could write a lot of inappropriate Pee Wee jokes that kids shouldn’t be hearing. Pee Wee’s live shows is mostly like that.

From the sounds of things look like Pee Wee will be the only human in the film and the rest of the cast will be puppets being voiced by big name actors?


Report: The new Pee Wee movie moves forward and Judd Apatow is hired as producer!!!

Universal Pictures is moving the “Pee Wee’s Playhouse: The Movie” forward and they have hired a producer. That is no one other than Judd Apatow. If you don’t know who Judd Apatow is, he directed such movies like, “Superbad”, “Funny People”, and “The 40 Year Old Virgin”.

Paul Reubens already wrote the script to “Pee Wee’s Playhouse: The Movie” through Universal. Pee Wee Herman will be heading to Broadway in NYC in the Fall.

Hmmmmm, this got me thinking of something. Since Judd is hired as producer and not director, does that mean Universal is saving the director’s job for, Tim Burton? Oh man, that would be sweet if they got Tim Burton on board as director. I’m game for a Paul Reubens and Tim Burton reunion, yes please!

Yep, you betcha I will go see the new Pee Wee movie when it comes out. Hopefully Tim Burton will direct it and maybe Danny Elfman will score for Pee Wee again?

*Crosses fingers for Tim Burton/Danny Elfman*

Some of you may find it crazy and a little weird, but I fucking love the Pee Wee character, always did. I would go see this new film, definitely.

That would be cool to see Tim Burton direct this. Paul Reubens and Tim Burton reunite to do “Playhouse”. Yeah.
