I guess it is no surprise that Hollywood finally got around to re-making Gilligan’s Island; they’ve turned The Flintstones, Bewitched, and Get Smart among many others into movies with varying degrees of success. I think it is a terrible idea, but then again, I thought Transformers would tank.
Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Josh Gad of Book of Mormon and Daily Show fame will be featured, but they’re not saying in what role. He will also reportedly co-write the movie.
If I was in charge of casting the movie, here are my choices:
Skipper: John Goodman
Gilligan: Jonah Hill
Mary Ann: Jennifer Lawrence
Ginger: Christina Hendricks
The Professor: Neil Degrasse Tyson
Mr. Howell: F. Murray Abraham
Mrs. Howell: Elizabeth Banks
