Dreams really can come true on the new “Fantasy Island”: Sony Pictures TV and Mark Burnett plan to turn the 1970s series into a reality show, reports Variety.

The show, which is currently scouting the world for a resort setting, was unveiled in Cannes, at Mipcom. On the new version, 12 contestants will compete to become a real-life Roarke, the character played by Ricardo Montalban who fulfilled island visitors’ fantasies.

The players will have to make guests’ dreams come true; one contestant will be bounced each week based on guest voting.
