Warner Bros. Pictures and production company Atlas Entertainment are developing a feature film based on CBS’ “Gilligan’s Island.”
Charles Roven and Richard Suckle will produce for Atlas, with Brad Copeland writing the screenplay. Original show producer Sherwood Schwartz is on board to executive produce along with son Lloyd Schwartz.
Variety says that plans are for a contemporary take on the iconic show. They’re hoping to start production next year but won’t move forward on seeking a director or cast until Copeland’s script is completed.
“The characters are so good,” Roven added. “We think it’s going to be a great story to transport these cultural icons to the modern day.”
