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.
