Judd Apatow (“The 40-Year-Old Virgin”, “Funny People”) is developing is developing an untitled Pee-wee Herman feature film for Universal Pictures that Paul Reubens will write with Paul Rust (“Inglourious Basterds”, “I Love You, Beth Cooper”).
“Let’s face it, the world needs more Pee-wee Herman,” Apatow told Daily Variety. “I am so excited to be working with Paul Reubens — who is an extraordinary and ground-breaking actor and writer. It’s so great to watch him return with such relevance.”
“There is no one like Judd in our business — he loves comedy with emotion and heart, and he sees what we do as art,” Reubens said. “I can’t believe I’m getting this opportunity to be working with him.”
