Pee-wee Herman Movie 'Going Great' and Happening 'Any Minute' (Supposedly)

Providing an update on the Pee-wee movie he last danced across our bars almost two years ago, Paul Reubens recently teased the Judd Apatow-produced film is going to happen "any minute, supposedly."

Speaking to ComingSoon, Reubens spoke of his progress on turning the Pee-wee films into the least likely trilogy ever, saying:

"That's any minute, supposedly. It's going great. We have a meeting this coming week. We just did a very quick little rewrite on it. As far as I know it's getting shot very soon."

Apparently the reason for the long time with no update is that news initially leaked earlier than it was meant to:

"I actually wasn't supposed to talk about it initially," Reubens explained of the long delay since word of the project broke. "I was talking about it in this very veiled, secret way going, 'Oh, I wish I could talk about it.' ...It got leaked about six months to a year before it was supposed to."

Exciting news for the Tonight Show writers' room, where an unused joke about Pee-wee's "public release management" has now suddenly become relevant again! But also pretty exciting news for we Pee-wee fans, as recently-renewed goodwill toward the character and Judd Apatow's involvement virtually guarantee this film will be a fun and cameo-filled adventure to rival The Muppets. Plus, with the movie hypothetically wrapping up an extended, disjointed trilogy, perhaps it will at least reveal what the fuck Pee-wee is, anyway.
