Josh Gad is about to get marooned.

Warner Bros. is bringing Gilligan's Island to theaters for a feature film with the Frozen funnyman attached to star.

While the roles of the seven castaways are still up in the air -- Warner hasn't said which part Gad will play -- the daughter of one of the CBS show's stars has a few people in mind.

Caprice Crane, whose mother Tina Louise played Ginger, said she can think of a few stars cut out to be as "awesome and gorgeous and funny as my mom."

"I'm in love Jennifer Lawrence." Crane said. "She's so fresh and charming and I love her ideas. The last go-around when this was being discussed, Beyoncé was suggested -- and I think that would be a good idea. But Christina Hendricks is the obvious physical choice."

Crane, a writer in Los Angeles, says she supports the reboot.

"I hope they get to do what they want," Crane said. "Part of me thinks I don't know why everybody has to remake everything, but part of me thinks it's great, give it a fresh twist and make it fantastic."
