Apatow told Variety:

Let’s face it, the world needs more Pee-wee Herman. I am so excited to be working with Paul Reubens – who is an extraordinary and ground-breaking actor and writer. It’s so great to watch him return with such relevance.

The news about the movie comes after the announcement that The Pee-wee Herman Show will be heading to Broadway.
