Cady Heron, Regina George, Gretchen Wieners, and Karen Smith are coming back to our screens, this time in the form of a Mean Girls movie that’s based on the stage production, produced by OG creator, Tina Fey. Fetch, on fetch, on fetch.
Producers of the Tony-award winning Mean Girls musical, which is currently showing on Broadway, was both written and produced by Fey. It was officially announced today that the stage production is set to be adapted into a movie for Pararmount Pictures.
“I’m very excited to bring Mean Girls back to the big screen,” Fey said in a statement. “It’s been incredibly gratifying to see how much the movie and the musical have meant to audiences. I’ve spent sixteen years with these characters now. They are my Marvel Universe, and I love them dearly.”
A release date for the movie, and whether any of the original cast will be reprising their roles or if we’ll see the likes of Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, or Amanda Seyfried taking part with a cameo, is yet to be confirmed. While we eagerly await more details, producers of the broadway Mean Girls musical also announced that the production will be coming to London’s West End next year – better start saving now.
Some are adamant that this shouldn’t happen (stop trying to make fetch happen etc, etc), many are into the meta return of the iconic, quotable film that came from a book that then became a musical and then a movie again.
So the #MeanGirls movie was turned into a Broadway musical, which was essentially the movie with some new songs. And now that Broadway musical will be turned into a movie, which will basically be the first movie with the addition of the Broadway songs. pic.twitter.com/sWwYf8Oi0a
