Paul Reubens made an American Icon out of Pee Wee Herman, and is hoping to bring the character back to the big AND small screen in 2015. Reubens is planning an new television show, as well as a new movie! Reubens told The LA Times that a director for the film has been selected but refused to name who was chosen to carry the new film.

“Short of something unforeseen like the studio going out of business, I think it’s very likely both these projects will happen next year,” he said.

I’m a huge fan of Pee Wee’s Big Adventure and I think it would be pretty interesting if Tim Burton returned to direct the new feature. Reubens has been hinting at a return of Pee Wee for years now. Luckily, last year he brought back a stage show and it was brilliant and felt just like the old Pee Wee.

I can’t wait to hear more news on the Pee Wee front and we’ll keep you posted as more news comes here to DFAT!
