Since it was released in 2004, “Mean Girls” has become a modern high-school comedy classic thanks to its spot-on performances by Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams along with the Tina Fey script, which captured what it’s really like to survive your teenage years.
Fans of the movie have been praying for a sequel for years (yes, there was a “Mean Girls 2,” but it didn’t include any of the leads from the original or Fey) and it turns out Lohan has been working to make that happen.
“I have been trying so hard to do a ‘Mean Girls 2.’ It is not in my hands,” she said on a recent CNN Facebook Live chat. “I know that Tina Fey and Lorne Michaels and all of Paramount are very busy. But I will keep forcing it and pushing it on them until we do it.”
Lohan has even taken a stab at writing the sequel herself, or at least a treatment – which gives an overview of a project idea – to start.
“I have already written a treatment for it. I just need a response. I know Mark Waters, the director; he’d happily come back,” said Lohan, who also mentioned that she’d like to see Jamie Lee Curtis and Jimmy Fallon in the movie.
However, Fey has been against a sequel.
“It’s too late now,” she told Entertainment Weekly when the magazine did a reunion piece on the movie in 2014.
But that doesn’t mean we’ll never see the Plastics again.
It turns out Fey and her husband, composer Jeffrey Richmond, have been working on a “Mean Girls” musical. It will premiere in the fall of 2017 in Washington, DC.
