Gilligan’s Island: The Movie

posted by Nell Minow

Apparently, a new version of “Gilligan’s Island” is coming to the big screen. My regular readers already know the reason for my special attachment to the show. I’m a bit concerned as the writer is the same guy who gave us the horrible Wild Hogs, but I am intrigued by original producer Sherwood Schwartz’s suggested casting of Michael Cera as Gilligan and Beyonce as Ginger. Watch the original pilot for “Gilligan’s Island” on the Warner’s website.

The New York Times, People and Entertainment Weekly have their dream casts in the current issues.

What do you think? Will it be any good? Who will be in it?

    I fear it will not be good, and I like Michael Cera, but I’d go with Owen Wilson as Gilligan. The EW guy mentioned Phillip Seymour Hoffman as the Skipper, which would be funny if they did it.
