Warner Bros. and Atlas Entertainment are teaming to develop a feature film based on Gilligan's Island, the iconic CBS sitcom which ran from 1964 to 1967 and then aired eternally through syndication.

According to Variety, Charles Roven and Richard Suckle are onboard to produce for Atlas, with Brad Copeland penning the screenplay.

The plans are for a contemporary take on the well-known premise and characters.

"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."

The 98 episodes of Gilligan's Island, starring Bob Denver as the hapless title character, centered on the wacky misadventures of seven castaways -- two crew members, a millionaire couple, a professor, a movie star and a girl-next-door type -- on an uncharted and uninhabited island in the Pacific.

Co-stars were Alan Hale Jr., Tina Louise, Dawn Wells, Jim Backus, Russell Johnson and Natalie Schafer.

No casting has been set although Sherwood Schwartz said in an interview last year that he was interested in Michael Cera playing the lead role.

Production could start as early as next year.
