Johnny Depp is in talks to star in two forthcoming Pee-Wee Herman movies, playing the legendary kids' character.

Paul Reubens, who played 'Pee-Wee' in TV shows and films until 1990, has completed two scripts which he hopes to bring to the big screen in 2009.

Reubens hopes to reprise the role himself, however he admitted that he had also spoken to his 'Blow' co-star Depp about taking on the role.

"(He said) Let me think about it." Contactmusic quoted Reubens, as telling MTV.

In addition to 'Blow' the duo is also linked through director Tim Burton, who is Depp's good pal.

Burton directed the first 'Pee-Wee Herman' movie in 1985, which was titled 'Pee-Wee Herman's Big Adventure'. (ANI)
