LOS ANGELES – Pee-Wee Herman is coming back to the big screen in a Judd Apatow production.

Apatow’s publicist, Matt Labov, says the writer-director-producer is developing a movie with Pee-Wee’s creator, Paul Reubens.

Reubens is co-writing the film, which is described as an on-the-road movie built around a big adventure.

Pee-Wee’s first film, 1985’s ‘Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure,’ spawned a cult TV show featuring the kooky, overgrown boy. Reubens revived his character on stage this year, and that show is set for a 48-performance run on Broadway starting Oct. 26.

Apatow’s film credits include ‘Knocked Up‘ and ‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin.’
