>> Reubens Offers Pee Wee Role to Depp

>> Ruebens Offers Pee Wee Role to DeppSome completely made-up sounding bunk from Daily Stab today:

“Paul Reubens, who played Pee-Wee in TV shows and films until 1990, has completed two scripts he hopes to bring to the big screen in 2009. Until now, Reubens planned to reprise the role himself, but admits he has spoken to Johnny Depp about taking on the part instead. Reubens says, “(He said) Let me think about it.”

Maybe, while we’re at it, we can get Orlando Bloom to don the Ernest P. Worrell vest and cap and bring us that Pee Wee Versus Ernest film we’ve been dreaming about for decades? Ok, that I’VE been dreaming about for decades.

Will this new Pee Wee film ever get made? I have no idea, but I can tell you that you have as much chance of seeing Depp playing Pee Wee as you have of seeing Paul Ruebens headline a mega-budget pirate trilogy for Disney. Take that as you will.

  1. Ernest vs. PeeWee…. at camp! in jail! in a steel cage!

    One can dream…

  2. Interesting, because I had hoped that when I heard Burton was making CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY that he would (or could) have thought about Reubens for Willy Wonka. I’m sure WB never would’ve let it happen, but I wished it would.
