Pee-wee to Lead World's Biggest "Tequila" Dance at Sturgis

In recognition of the 25th anniversary of Pee-wee's Big Adventure, Paul Reubens (a.k.a. Pee-wee Herman) will lead the world's biggest "Tequila" dance at the 70th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, S.D. Reubens is hoping to get the event in the Guinness Book of World Records. The Sturgis rally takes place on August 8th and 9th, but there's no word yet on when the mass dance will occur.

In related news, Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up) will be producing the new Pee-wee Herman film. The story will be inspired by Pee-wee's Big Adventure, but not a remake. Instead, this film will also be a road trip story, but it may also feature characters from Pee-wee's Playhouse.

Pee-wee's Big Adventure was Tim Burton's first feature film.

Hardcore fans ought to get ready for Sturgis and study the immortal dance:

Just thought you might want to know about this: Dark Shadows has a new screenwriter in the form of Seth Grahame-Smith, author of Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, which Burton is producing. He is replacing longtime Burton screenwriter John August.


I'm sorry, but my email address does not work for the time being, otherwise, I would contact you with this news that way.
