One of the most influential women in horror of all time, Debra Hill would have been 64 years old this year. As a perfect way to pay honor and respects, the filmmaking team Dpyx (Marcy Boyle and Rachel Holzman) have announced that they will write, direct, and produce The Debra Hill Documentary. Lotti Pharris Knowles of Weirdsmobile Productions will serve as executive producer. This will be the first film about Debra Hill, and by telling her story, the filmmakers hope to preserve an important piece of the empowering history of women in Hollywood. Debra Hill began her career as a script supervisor in the 1970s, including on John Carpenter’s Assault On Precinct 13. She teamed with Carpenter on his next feature, Halloween, as his co-writer and producer. After the extraordinary success of that film, Hill became a key player in a wave of trailblazing women who broke barriers in the male-dominated film industry. »

Paul Reubens was on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and announced there will be a new Pee-Wee Herman movie with Judd Apatow producing. Reubens says an official announcement is about a week away, but a director has been hired and they will begin filming in February for what will most likely end up being an early 2016 release. This is a film that's been discussed for some time now with Reubens discussing the project way back in 2011 with the Hollywood Reporter saying: Paul Rust ("Arrested Development") and I just turned in a draft to Judd last week. He's bringing such an interesting side to it. He's constantly having us talk about and address the emotional core of Pee-wee Herman. It's adding a dimension I never had before. Judd, if you're reading this, I think it's ready to green light! The last full-fledged Pee-Wee movie was 1988's Big Top Pee-wee, which »

Paul Reubens has confirmed that a new Pee-wee Herman movie will likely begin production in 2015.
Reubens announced that a new movie will soon go into production during an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
He added that a major director will soon be announced for the project, explaining: "I was hoping I could make this huge announcement tonight, but it's a week away, I think, from being announced."
The first reports of a new Pee-wee Herman film emerged back in 2010, when Apatow was first linked to the project.
Reubens revived the popular comedy character for a run on »
Big news from the world of '80s nostalgia: Pee-wee Herman himself, Paul Reubens, was a guest on The Tonight Show Wednesday, and he confirmed to host Jimmy Fallon that Pee-wee is once again headed to the big screen. "There is going to be one," Reubens told Fallon while coyly confirming movie buzz. "I was hoping I could make this huge announcement tonight, but it's a week away, I think, from being announced." He continued, saying that production is set to begin in February and that a director is indeed on board, although he wasn't allowed to comment further. Rumors »
Paul Reubens is dusting off his red bow-tie once more for a film revival of his iconic character Pee-wee Herman. The comedian confirmed the Judd Apatow-produced film was moving forward during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, but wasn't able to divulge too many details just yet. "There is going to be one," Reubens said. "And I was hoping I could make this huge announcement tonight, but it's a week away, I think, from being announced."
Reubens, however, did say that production on the »
"There's going to be a big announcement any minute now. Yes. It's been months and months of being right on the verge of being announced. I thought something was going to go public yesterday, actually, and that you'd be the first person I'd be talking about this with. But I'm thinking there will be something made public very soon. It's going to get made shortly after the new year. I wish I could tell you about it right now, because... I mean, it's amazing. It's going to be amazing. It think it first got leaked four years ago or so that the movie was going to be made, and ever since then it's just been stalling and stalling. So I'm really ready for this to happen. »
As long as this is closer to Pee Wee's Big Adventure and a decided departure from 1988's ill fated Big Top Pee-Wee I think we'll be in fairly decent shape. Paul Reubens is claiming that an official announcement regarding a new Pee-Wee Herman movie is almost incredibly f*cking nigh. This is excellent news considering the fact that it's been well over two years since our last update on the project. Given the fact that Reubens sounded optimistic then (though not quite this optimistic), let's hope there's a bit more going on than last time around. There's no word on if Judd Apatow is still involved or if they are using any of the script that he worked on, but I'm hoping there's a strong steward aboard either way because I don't want my Pee-Wee ship sailing rudderless. Hit the jump for more on the new Pee-Wee Herman movie. Reubens »

Remember Taneleer Tivan, The Collector? That David Bowie-looking guy who appeared at the end of Thor: The Dark World and made a similarly fleeting appearance in this week’s crazy sci-fi blockbuster Guardians Of The Galaxy? Well, beneath the eccentricities, the mincing and the hairpiece of the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe was multiple award winning, Puerto Rican character actor Benicio del Toro, in his first big screen role since…well, we’ll get to that soon enough. It’s a bit of a funny turn for a man with an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and a BAFTA Award to his name – for the same movie, no less – and it got us to thinking how he’d gotten here.
Born to a couple of lawyers, with an older brother who went into the medical profession, del Toro was something of »
