Sort of like the comedic equivalent of Scott Rudin, getting Judd Apatow to produce your film is a stamp of approval most writers and filmmakers would kill for. This year, Apatow will find his named attached to a handful of highly anticipated comedies including "Bridesmaids," the Paul Rudd/Jennifer Aniston vehicle "Wanderlust" as well as the soon-to-be-lensing collaboration between Nicholas Stoller and Jason Segel, "Five Year Engagement." But the ever busy writer/director/producer has added another project to his growing slate.

Actor Wants To Use CGI To De-Age His FaceEver since it was revealed that comedy giant Judd Apatow would be producing and possibly directing a new, Pee Wee Herman movie, interviewers have been trying to squeeze details out of Apatow without much luck. Recently, all Apatow would confirm is that it wouldn't be a direct sequel and the film would exist very much in a world of it's own without necessarily reflecting to previous films. However, Paul Reubens has proven to be much more chatty about the gestating film and in a panel conversation this afternoon at SXSW, the actor revealed that as much as he wanted to spill the beans, Apatow's iron grip on story details is keeping him mum, for now.

Filmmaker/Writer Also Talks Pee-Wee Herman Film He's ProducingDoing the rounds of press for the recent Blu-ray release of the 1996 dark satire "The Cable Guy" (thanks for including us guys), triple threat writer/producer/director Judd Apatow naturally fielded questions about the currently untitled "Knocked Up" spin-off that isn't a spin-off, but well, actually kinda sort of is (sorry Universal protesting). As you've heard, the film focuses on the other (and married) couple from "Knocked Up," Pete and Debbie, otherwise known as Apatow's wife Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd, and it will catch up with their relationship four or five years since the events of the preceding film.

The answer is probably "No," but it's an intriguing prospect and you just never know what might happen. Last summer, it was revealed that Judd Apatow would be producing a brand new Pee Wee Herman movie but it appears as Apatow may consider the director's chair as well.
