Netflix is reportedly nearing a deal to distribute the new “Pee-Wee Herman” movie which Judd Apatow is producing says The Wrap.
A Netflix spokesperson cautions that there’s no deal in place yet, but other sources tell the outlet this deal has been in the works for months. Paul Reubens, who co-wrote the script with Paul Rust, reprises his iconic role in the project which aims to begin shooting next year.
The project had previously been set up at Universal, but that is confirmed to no longer be the case. It also hasn’t been revealed who will be serving as the film’s director, though one is said to be in place.
