Apatow working with another 40 Year-Old Virgin!

Apatow working with another 40 Year-Old Virgin!

Paul ‘Pee Wee Herman’ Reubens has been talking about these two new movies (one similar in tone to Tim Burton’s “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”, the other essentially a big-screen version of “Pee Wee’s Playhouse” – that Laurence Fishburne would undoubtedly want to reprise his role as Cowboy Curtis, in) that he’s apparently doing, or was doing (keep reading), ever since a butcher was called in to cut the comic’s ass free from that sticky porno theater chair. Now as much as I love Reubens (his role as Amilyn in “Buffy, the Vampire Slayer” is a ‘Morris Family’ favourite), I’ve gotta say, I never expected the two projects to come to fruition. Look, I’m sure there’s an audience out there for Pee Wee still, but there’s also an audience out there for Stuart Little – and nobody’s wanting to cough up the coin to see he returns to the screen (pity, I’m so over “Stuart Little 2″). The only way Pee Wee was going to get his vistackular comeback is with a nice letter of intent from someone of note, interested in working with him on the project. Which, it seems, he now has.

Judd Apatow. Uber-producer. The guy they mistakenly call ‘Today’s John Hughes’ (please! I love Apatow’s films but his films as far from Hughes films. You might say Greg Mottola’s films are closer in tone to Hughes, actually). The one who swayed Ursula away from George. The man responsible for affording Seth Rogen a haircut. He’s interested in bringing back Pee Wee.

(Pity Judd’s already used the title “The 40 Year-Old Virgin”!).

According to Variety, it’s a new project (so seemingly not either of the ones Reubens has been pushing the past few years) that Reubens and Paul Rust (“I Love You Beth Cooper”) are writing together that Apatow wants to produce. They say it’s some kind of “road trip” movie – guessing they’re not remaking “Sesame Street Presents Follow that Bird” with Pee Wee substituting for Big Bird, right?! And if not, why not!? That’s a damn good idea!
