Gilligan’s Island: The Movies that You Haven’t Seen

January 6, 2009
Last week, the 'net was abuzz with the news that a new deal was made to finally make a Gilligan's Island movie. It'll be interesting to see what kind of storyline this new film will have and how it'll compare to the original cast movie ideas that never happened. Gilligan's Island follows a group of wacky castaways that have been shipwrecked on a deserted island. No matter how hard they try, their escape attempts always fail. The cast of the 1960s sitcom is made up of Bob Denver, Alan Hale Jr., Jim Backus, Natalie Schafer, Tina Louise, Russell Johnson, and Dawn Wells. In addition to multiple cameos over the years, the sitcom inspired two animated series (The New Adventures of Gilligan, Gilligan's Planet) and three reunion movies (Rescue from Gilligan's Island, The Castaways on Gilligan's Island, and The Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island). Louise is the only castmember who distanced her self from the sitcom and has never reprised her role as Ginger. The castaways were finally rescued in Rescue but found themselves stranded once again by the end. Despite a poor programming decision to air the reunion movie in two parts on consecutive Saturday nights, Rescue became the most-watched TV movie of the year. Over 50% of people watching television on October 14, 1978 tuned in to watch the castaways be rescued. It also inspired the slew of other TV show reunions that followed.

Yet another classic television show, Gilligan's Island, may be headed for the big-screen. There've been numerous movie plans in the past will this one actually be made? Gilligan's Island was created by Sherwood Schwartz (The Brady Bunch) and follows a diverse group of people who've been shipwrecked. Though there are only 98 episodes, the sitcom became incredibly popular in syndication and the characters have become a part of popular culture. The original castaways are Bob Denver, Alan Hale Jr., Jim Backus, Natalie Schafer, Tina Louise, Russell Johnson, and Dawn Wells. Most of the castaways reunited for different projects over the years, including three TV movies (Rescue from Gilligan's Island, The Castaways on Gilligan's Island, and The Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island), two animated series (The New Adventures of Gilligan and Gilligan's Planet), and guest-spots on shows like ALF, Baywatch, and Roseanne. There's been talk of doing a big screen movie version of Gilligan's Island on and off for many years. At one time, it looked like Jim Carrey was going to play Gilligan. Now, there are new plans in the works.
