Open Thread: Just Say ‘No’-Warner Bros. To Make ‘Gilligan’s Island’ Movie
December 17, 2013 - 11:26 pm
Warner Bros. is about to go on a fateful trip.
The studio is putting into motion a big-screen version of Gilligan’s Island, the classic 1960s television comedy, that will serve as a vehicle for Josh Gad, the Broadway star who is one of the voices in Disney Animation’s hit Frozen, THR has confirmed.
Gad will write the script with Benji Samit and Dan Hernandez, who were both writers on the Gad-starring NBC sitcom 1600 Penn.
Well, at least it’s got three people from a heavily hyped and promoted sitcom that lasted all of thirteen episodes last year.
Soon they will be making movies based on shows that even the people who starred in them don’t remember.
