Rumors have been flying for quite some time that Paul Reubens was hard at work on two new Pee-Wee films for Universal. One was said to be a kids movie, the other a movie for older audiences. Reports are now making the rounds that Judd Apatow, he of Freaks and Geeks and 40 Year Old Virgin fame, is aboard to at least produce one of these. The question is, which one? In an interview with MTV Films last year Reubens spoke about one possibility being ready to go. “It’s not really the real world, it’s Puppetland,” he says. “On Pee Wee’s Playhouse, on the television series, we never left the playhouse, we were always inside the playhouse. The movie is all out of the playhouse. There are two scenes in the playhouse, but the rest is out of the playhouse.” Could this be what Apatow is on board for? Who knows. All I know is that Pee-Wee’s Playhouse was brilliant and if I can get some new stories in my life, there’s nothing wrong with that.
