Michael Cera is being eyed to play the starring role in an upcoming Gilligan’s Island movie, a role once made famous by Bob Denver on the silver screen. The movie will be an adaption of the 60’s television show, and shows that Hollywood is once again delving into the past in the hope of remixing a past classic,  and  turning it into a future one.

The story will be based around 7 people who end up shipwrecked, and stranded on a desert island. A source says that the movie hopes to put a spin on the old characters from the film to make them more contemporary, so a range of the usual stereotypical teenage type characters to be expected!
