Warner Bros. has made a deal with Josh Gad (NBC’s 1600 Penn, FOX’s Back to You) to star in the upcoming movie based on 1960s sitcom Gilligan’s Island. There’s no word on which of the seven iconic castaways Gad will play but Gilligan seems likely.
Gad is also set to write the feature film with Benji Samit and Dan Hernandez.
The original Gilligan’s Island series stars Bob Denver, Alan Hale Jr, Jim Backus, Natalie Schafer, Tina Louise, Russell Johnson, and Dawn Wells. The sitcom ran for just three seasons.
