PRINCETON (WVVA) - A big-screen version of an iconic TV series from the 1960s may soon be coming to a theatre near you.

According to multiple media reports, Warner Brothers is developing a feature film on ‘Gilligan's Island.'

Dreama Denver, Princeton resident and wife of the late Bob Denver -- who famously played Gilligan -- says three writers have been hired, but there's no script yet.

Depending on how the writers treat the script, Denver says a ‘Gilligan's Island' movie could be a lot of fun.

"I just want them to handle it with TLC," Denver said. "Just because fans are very devoted to this show and what they love is the innocence and the purity of it... and I don't think they are going to want to see it all jazzed up to a 21st-century version of Gilligan"

Denver says the idea of a ‘Gilligan' motion picture has been talked about before. At one point, Denver says Tom Hanks was talked about to play Gilligan, with John Goodman as the Skipper.

‘Gilligan's Island' – and many other classic television series – can be seen daily on WVVA's MeTV.

‘Gilligan's Island' airs Monday through Thursday at 8 p.m. View the full MeTV schedule
