Puh-lease God, let it be so!
MTV caught up with Paul Reubens promoting his new stage version of The Pee-wee Herman Show where he spilled the beans about a new movie.
“I’m going to make a movie based on my kids show, based on ‘Pee Wee’s Playhouse.’ It’s already done, the script is already fully written. It’s ready to shoot. It’s ready to shoot tomorrow. Oh wait, not tomorrow! I’m not available tomorrow. I had a conflict, forgot.”
Asked if the movie would feature Pee-wee going out into the real world, Pee-Wee said, “It’s not really the real world, it’s Puppetland. 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. But I can’t really tell anything about the movie at this time; it’s pretty much top-secret in Hollywood.”
Pee-wee's Big Adventure is one of my favorite movies and like every other Pee-wee fan, I've been waiting for years on another film. This needs to shoot soon. Pee-wee is 57 years old now. That's right, everybody's favorite nerd is 57 years old. Sadder words have never been written.
Please Hollywood, make this happen! Let this be my Christmas miracle.
