HOLLYWOOD – Pee-wee Herman’s new film Pee-wees Big Holiday will be rated ‘hard R’ following the success of Deadpool.
The new Pee-wee Herman film Pee-wee’s Big Holiday will be released in a hard R cut in an attempt to follow up the success of Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool. An executive for Netflix told the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY:
Pee-wee has always been one of those characters who appeals to kids but also has a very adult and savvy sense of humor so it’s actually quite easy to turn it into a more adult orientated comedy. And when we told Paul he actually seemed very relaxed about the concept. I mean he was into it, really.
How does this link to Deadpool?
I’m not sure it does except that Pee-wee is kind of a superhero and there’s obviously the comedy aspect. Actually even the idea of it being hard R doesn’t mean much, what with this being a Netflix show, but still the point is we’re trying. And if voices in the industry are anything to go by I have the feeling that we’re going to be seeing a slew of hard R rated films for no other reason than money.
