It’s been a long time since we heard anything new regarding the long-rumored feature film that will bring Paul Reubens back to the big screen as iconic man-child Pee-Wee Herman. Apparently, things have been moving along behind the scenes, as Reubens offered an update on the still-untitled project during a recent press event for the “TRON: Uprising” animated series.

“That’s any minute, supposedly,” Reubens told of film’s status. “…It’s going great. We have a meeting this coming week. We just did a very quick little rewrite on it. As far as I know it’s getting shot very soon.”

Originally announced way back in 2010, Reubens is teaming up with Judd Apatow to bring Pee-Wee Herman back to the screen with a film co-written by Reubens and Paul Rust (“The Pee-Wee Herman Show on Broadway”). Apatow will produce the movie.

According to Reubens, word on the project wasn’t supposed to get out as early as it did, but things are progressing rapidly now.

“I actually wasn’t supposed to talk about it initially,” said Reubens. “I was talking about it in this very veiled, secret way going, ‘Oh, I wish I could talk about it.’ …It got leaked about six months to a year before it was supposed to.”

When (and if) the film does end up hitting the screen, it will be the third film in a franchise that kicked off with 1985’s “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure” (directed by Tim Burton) and continued with 1988’s “Big Top Pee-Wee.”

Before Pee-Wee Herman returns to the screen, however, Reubens will provide the voice of a character named Pavel in the upcoming “TRON: Uprising” animated series, which premieres June 7.

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
