James Gunn has a sinister idea for a “Gilligan’s Island” movie.

In a response to a “pitch a movie in two pictures, no caption” challenge on Twitter, the “Guardians Of The Galaxy” and “Suicide Squad” director posted a picture of the “Gilligan’s Island” crew next to a depiction of cannibalism.

Following up the tweet, Gunn explained, “A true story: In the late 90’s screenwriting GOAT Charlie Kaufman pitched a movie version of ‘Gilligan’s Island’ where the islanders, starving & desperate, started killing & eating each other. Warner Bros wanted to do it – but Sherwood Schwartz, the creator, said no way.”

He added, “After ‘Guardians’ I tried to resurrect the idea & wanted to direct. It seemed Warners & Charlie were interested but, this time, the estate of the late Sherwood Schwartz nixed it. Anyway, if the Schwartz estate changes their mind, I’m here.”

“Gilligan’s Island”, which ran for three seasons from 1964-1967 on CBS, followed a group of castaways on an island and their attempts to survive and escape.

Schwartz, who also created “The Brady Bunch”, passed away in 2011.
