'Gilligan's Island' to set sail again ... as a movie

Just sit right back, and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a rebooted TV series being turned into a movie. That's right, "Gilligan's Island," the goofy 1960s show about seven castaways stranded on a tropical island is getting the feature film treatment, with "Book of Mormon" star Josh Gad set to star.

According to Deadline, Gad is definitely set to play a key role, which will likely make him Gilligan (a part originated by the lanky Bob Denver), though Gad's body configuration might make him a more appropriate Skipper (who was played by Alan Hale Jr.).

The show ran from 1964-67 and was created and produced by Sherwood Schwartz (who wrote the enduring theme song and was also the brain behind "The Brady Bunch"). Two of Schwartz's children, Lloyd and Ross, are on board to produce the film.
