Illustration for article titled Paul Reubens says the new Pee-wee Herman film could start shooting any minute

It's been nearly two years since Paul Reubens let it slip that he and Judd Apatow were combining childish-man forces to bring Pee-wee Herman back to the big screen. This weekend, Reubens finally offered a very slight, nominal update: "As far as I know, it's getting shot very soon," Reubens said, adding that it had just been through a quick rewrite and that a meeting on it is scheduled for this coming week, so he believes it will become a real thing "any minute, supposedly"—though it is still not, as of this minute. Or this one. What about now? No? Well, we'll keep checking back. He also explained that the seemingly long delay is a result of his accidentally revealing too many details too soon, which marks the first instance of Reubens getting in trouble for ill-timed exposure. Anyway, aside from the opportunity for cheap jokes, Reubens still mostly provided vague promises, including those for two more "incredible" projects to follow the film—one of which could have something to do with reality TV, according to Coming Soon—but it does seem as though more details on the third Pee-wee adventure will be coming forthwith. But first: There are thousands and thousands of uses for corn, all of which I'm going to tell you about right now!
