According to/Film, "Gilligan's Island" creator, Sherwood Schwartz, and his son Lloyd signed on to bring the TV classic to the big screen!
But wait, there's more!
Apparently, the Schwartz's wants Michael Cera ("Superbad," "Juno," "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist") to play Gilligan, and Beyonce to star as Ginger.
Honestly, besides a few nostalgic folks, I don't think this project will work on the big screen. A made-for-TV project may work, but being lost on an island nowadays is not as fun anymore -- it's more kinetic like "Lost."
But gee, I wonder what prompted this decision. Oh yeah, "Land of the Lost" big-screen adaptation! (see below)

I saw bits and pieces of this film at this year's Comic-Con. And I'm kinda, sorta excited.
I grew up with the original Sid & Marty Krofft series, so this has a special place in my heart.
The film opens June 5th, but for now, take a look at the poster by clicking Read More: Read More...

Last weekend, we said Stephen Chow will NOT be directing "The Green Hornet" but will still co-star with Seth Rogen as Kato.
Now, the Associated Press is reporting that Chow:
...may not star as Kato, a character made famous by Bruce Lee in the short-lived TV series.
he wants to free up time to work with Jack Black on a comedy about a superhero
Huh? What superhero Jack Black movie?
And now, Chow is saying he may or may not stay in the film, "depending on his schedule."
Oh, okay. Let's wait and see how Columbia Pictures folks will respond!

Director JJ Abrams is brimming with joy to tell Trek fans that:
We're just making final tweaks to the movie -- we should be totally locked next week. Then we're going to flash-freeze it so it's totally fresh for you in May. I can't wait for you to see the movie. The cast is awesome. The action and effects pushed the stunt team and ILM beyond their limits. I'm so grateful to this cast and crew -- and to all of you for your interest and patience. We'll continue to update this page with new info and exclusives, so check back when you think of it. In the meantime, have a happy, healthy, fun holiday!
From the last days of the sound mix,
Hhhmmmm...okay...a passionate director!
Check out Abrams' Facebook page where the quote was taken directly from.
Meanwhile, have you guys checked out the new trailer yet? The one with the old Spock in the end? It's pretty spectacular!
Here it is:

As we reported last week, director Rob Zombie is returning for the second installment of his "Halloween" re-imagination.
Simply called "H2," the sequel is on schedule to be released next year!
Now, Zombie is dropping hints that the Laurie Strode character will return as well!
The character, popularized by Jamie Lee Curtis in the John Carpenter classic and played by Scout Taylor-Compton in Zombie's take, also returned on the 1981 sequel.
Remember Haddonfield Hospital?
The battleground between Michael Myers and his sister, Laurie.
Check out Zombie's MySpace page and see what he's saying about Laurie Strode.
It's still unclear whether Compton will return for "H2" though.
