Filming for Judd Apatow’s new adaptation of Pee-wee Herman began this week, and with it comes our first look at Paul Reubens reviving his iconic character. Either the film’s make-up team deserves an Academy Award nomination, or Reubens hasn’t aged a bit.
Entitled Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, the forthcoming film is the third in the franchise, following 1985’s Pee-wee’s Big Adventure and 1988’s Big Top Pee-wee. Reubens wrote the script with Paul Rust (Comedy Bang! Bang!, Arrested Development), with John Lee (Broad City, Inside Amy Schumer) making his directorial debut. It will premiere on Netflix at a date still to be announced.
