Was the movie Castaway with XXXXX XXXXXks supposed to be a remake

Was the movie Castaway with XXXXX XXXXXks supposed to be a remake of the novel Robinson Crusoe or be correlated to it?
Hello. It's not a remake as XXXXX XXXXXks new "friend" is Wilson the ball and not Friday like in Robinson Crusoe.

Also the character of XXXXX XXXXXks live in the same universe time line as you and me where the book already exist.

So it's more of an interpretation of the story. Those are named "Robinsonade", like "The Swiss Family Robinson" novel for example or "lord of the flies". Castaway just happen to not derive a lot from the original material.
