(Newser) – More than 40 years later, Gilligan’s Island is coming to the big screen. Warner Bros. and Atlas Entertainment have begun development on the film, Variety reports, adding that they plan to update the familiar premise. No cast has been announced, other than the possibility of Michael Cera as Gilligan, so the New York Times offers a few suggestions:

  • The Skipper: Nick Offerman of Parks and Recreation
  • Mary Ann: Zooey Deschanel
  • Ginger: Christina Hendricks of Mad Men
  • The Professor: Robert Downey Jr. or James Spader
  • Thurston Howell III: Michael Clarke Duncan
  • Lovey Howell: Jennifer Lopez
