Pee-wee Herman returning to the big screen

Paul Reubens has finished a new script


Paul Reubens, the man behind Pee-wee Herman, has finished a new script that will see the character returning to cinemas.

Reubens played the character through two series of the TV show, and also starred in Pee-wee's Big Adventure, which was director Tim Burton's debut feature.

Reubens said of the new project: "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".

It'll be interesting to see how this plays, considering Big Adventure very much depended on Pee-wee's foray into the real world.

      Big Adventure was hilarious and well worth a watch just for the James Brolin movie at the end.

      Big Adventure is an ace film, as ChrisWootton says, the last 15 minutes are the best, pee-wee doing bad acting in the hotel with James Brolin is comedy gold! cant wait for a new one! Paul Reubens is an under appreciated actor
