When the series finally wraps up later this spring, fans of "Lost" can gravitate back to the original TV desert-island fantasy: "Gilligan's Island."
Because they're finally making a movie out of it. Can you believe it's taken this long?
Variety reports today that a "Gilligan's Island" movie is under way now at Warner Bros.
Plans are for a contempo take on the well-known premise and characters, with the studio and the Schwartzes' blessing Copeland's initial idea for the screenplay. ...
"The characters are so good," Roven added. "We think it's going to be a great story to transport these cultural icons to the modern day."
The castaways, after all, are still on the island. The series ended in 1967 after not being renewed for a fourth season.
So, Shiny Objectors, now the question is up to you: Who should be cast in the movie?
The roles, remember:
- Gilligan ("Lil' Buddy")
- Captain Jonas Grumby ("Skipper")
- Thurston Howell III
- Eunice "Lovey" Wentworth Howell
- Ginger Grant
- Roy Hinkley ("The Professor")
- Mary Ann Summers
