Paul Reubens Discusses Pee-Wee's Big Return

Paul Reubens Discusses Pee-Wee's Big Return - Movie News Story | MTV Movie News: "It's been nearly 20 years since Pee-wee appeared in a feature film all his own. No one could have guessed that 1988's 'Big Top Pee-wee' would be the cinematic swan song for Reubens' baby — not after the character had taken the country by storm, thanks to the groundbreaking children's show 'Pee-wee's Playhouse' and the instantly quotable 1985 film 'Pee-wee's Big Adventure' from a rookie director by the name of Tim Burton. Of course, life — in the form of a notorious 1991 arrest in an adult theater — had other plans. Now, if Reubens has his way, we may be on the cusp of the return of Pee-wee in the form of two feature films starring the wide-eyed perennial man-child. 'I feel like the time is really ripe right now,' Reubens said. 'A lot of the kids who grew up with the show are young adults. The college kids are middle-aged adults. I feel like I have enough of a built-in audience to make back an investment.'"
