'Gilligan's Island' Headed To The Big Screen


Michael Cera (Juno, Superbad) is a candidate to play Gilligan.

Movie studio prop department will probably be making lots of trips to Oceanic Arts in Whittier.

My boys got us the first two seasons of GI for Valentine's Day (okay I bought it and said it was from them) and we've been watching it over the last couple weeks. It's cool to see that most the humor transcends time and age (the boys are 8 and 11) and the first season is even in B&W. Most evenings, the boys have been asking if we can watch an episode or two.

I just hope that the "modern take" doesn't end up like so many other iconic series have been remade over the years. Otherwise, I think I'd prefer they stay on the island and leave 'em be.

Lets start guessing who would make the best characters from todays actors!

I'll start with Lindsey Lohan as Ginger!

I wonder if they'll close it out.....have them rescued at the end. Might make an interesting movie. Have it take up where the series left off, rather than trying to tell the entire story again.

They had a TV movie in the 90's (?) where they DID get rescued.

I vote for John Goodman for the skipper...if Michael Cera is Gilligan tho' Goodman may be too old for the part.

I don't know why everyone is getting so excited about this, you know it's going to SUCK !!

Also shouldn't this post be in Bilge ? To bring up a cheesy TV show in a forum that should be reserved for a serious discussion of classic Tiki-style is very inappropriate !! ( )

If they're going to go ahead with this, I suggest they take a 360-degree approach and play it as a serious drama.

Also how about casting a total unknown to bring a stamp of Poly-Pop authenticity to the whole production? I think the Bigbro would make a great professor. Can you imagine him in the scene where the castaways take refuge in the Tiki cave? He won't even have to act !!

I think you mean a 180 degree approach.

Well, the tv show was so ridiculous , why should the movie NOT be ? To make it serious would be the worst tragedy of all. Get Jud Apatow to write and produce it, and and give it that wise-ass twist and it would probably be great.

With Judd Apatow producing, would that mean Seth Rogen as the Skipper, Steve Carell as the Professor, and Jonah Hill as Gilligan? Oh and of course Leslie Mann and Elizabeth Banks as Maryann and Ginger...not sure which one would be which.

(edited because I forgot to suggest Paul Rudd as Mr. Howell...can't have an Apatow flick without Paul Rudd.)
