Josh Gad to Star in a Movie Remake of ‘Gilligan’s Island’
Warner Bros is preparing to turn 1960s sitcom Gilligan’s Island into a movie, and Josh Gad (1600 Penn, The Book of Mormon) is attached to play a major role, Deadline reports. Gad will write the script with Benji Samit and Dan Hernandez. There’s no word on what part Gad will be playing, although it’ll probably be either Gilligan or the Skipper. It’s pretty hard to imagine Gilligan’s Island warranting enough material for a full-on movie, given that it’s a pretty flimsy premise even for a 22-minute show, but we’ll see how this goes.
