Set for big screen
The much-loved 1960s TV show Gilligan’s Island is set to make a comeback on the silver screen. Warner Bros has announced it aims to make a feature film based on the comedy series about a group of castaways shipwrecked on an uncharted island. It will be fashioned as a star vessel for Book Of Mormon’s Josh Gad, who will also co-write the script. The original series starred Bob Denver as Gilligan and featured a catchy theme song. Alan Hale Jr and Jim Backus also starred as The Skipper and millionaire Howell respectively.
