Sit right down and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a movie studio about to royally tarnish the memory of a perfectly cheesy, best-left-alone classic.

From the ever-expanding Hollywood's Run Out Ideas Deptartment comes the groan-worthy word that Gilligan's Island is getting the big-screen treatment, with Warner Bros. developing the 1960s sitcom into slicked-up film version.

Per Variety, the seven stranded castaways will indeed be transported to modern day in the revamped edition, and while no script, director or actors are on board, last year the show's creator (and theme song writer) Sherwood Schwartz floated Michael Cera's name to take over the titular little-buddy role.

You'd think with a professor on board, they'd have thought this through a little more.
