Pee-Wee Is Officially Returning for Another Big Adventure

Pee-Wee's Big Adventure
He's "a loner." He's "a rebel." And he's coming back.

It’s been almost 30 years since Paul Reubens and Tim Burton teamed up for the one-of-a-kind comedy cult classic Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure (which, I can personally confirm, still plays great in 2014). A new sequel has been rumored for years now, and on the Tonight Show last night, Reubens confirmed that he’ll once again be donning his red bowtie.

As previously reported, Judd Apatow will produce the movie, and a director has been chosen, though Reubens said he can’t yet announce his name. (He said we should expect a “huge announcement” next week.) There’s no word yet on whether the movie will also see the return of his bicycle.
