According to Deadline, Warner Bros. is moving forward with a big screen adaptation of Gilligan's Island. Josh Gad (voice of Olaf the Snowman in Frozen) has signed on for the lead role, and will also write the script with Benji Samit and Dan Hernandez. The studio has not confirmed which role Gad will play, but the feeling is that it will either be Gilligan or the Skipper.
Gilligan's Island originally starred Bob Denver, Alan Hale Jr., Jim Backus, Natalie Schafer, Dawn Wells and Tina Louise as a band of unlikely castaways stranded on an uncharted island after a three-hour tour. The show ran on CBS from 1964 through 1967, and produced 98 episodes.
