You’re Welcome, Josh Gad! Casting the Gilligan’s Island Mov…

The beloved TV show Gilligan’s Island will receive a fresh new makeover courtesy of The Book of Mormon’s Josh Gad. The Tony nominee is reuniting with his fellow 1600 Penn writers to adapt the classic sitcom into a feature film, which Gad will also star in. This idea sounds so super, we can’t help but think what it would be like if all the castaways were Broadway veterans. Check out our dream cast for the Gilligan’s Island movie.
