'Gilligan's Island' Three-Season Tour To Be Extended into Josh Gad Movie

December 17, 2013


Looking back at 2005's Bewitched and 2009's Land of the Lost with a sense of fondness not even felt by Will Ferrell's bank accounts, Warner Bros. has decided it's time to again go rooting through Nick at Nite's dumpster for film ideas. According to Deadline, the studio has now started planning a feature take on Gilligan's Island, and they've attached 1600 Penn and Jobs co-star Josh Gad to take a role and co-write with Benji Samit and Dan Hernandez. Gad's part isn't known, but it's said "the title character seems a possibility, though he could conceivably play The Skipper." You know, because he's goofy, but also kind of overweight. The bigger casting conundrum to me is, do they get Katherine Heigl to be the "movie star" or save her for Green Acres?
