“There’s going to be a big announcement any minute now,” stated Reubens. “Yes. It’s been months and months of being right on the verge of being announced.”
More than a year ago, it was announced that Judd Apatow would be producing a new installment in the Pee-Wee series. Though Reubens revived the Pee-Wee Herman character in 2010 with a stage show, there hasn’t been a film since 1988’s Big Top Pee-Wee.
