Attention Mean Girls fans! Tina Fey is reportedly developing the hit comedy movie Mean Girls into a movie musical, according to Uproxx on Monday, Jan. 28. The comedian mentioned the musical as a potential future project after her award-winning comedy sitcom "30 Rock" ends its run this week.
Fey first mentioned the idea on the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday night in Hollywood. Fey said, "Maybe! We want to. I would love to. I’m trying to develop it with my husband, who does all the music for 30 Rock and I think Paramount’s onboard."
Mean Girls (2004) was adapted for the big screen by Fey who also had a role in the film as a teacher. Starring Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried, the film was based on both the non-fiction book "Queen Bees and Wannabes" by Rosalind Wiseman and Fey's personal high school experience.
Fey mentioned music icon and current American Idol judge Mariah Carey for the role of Regina's mom in the Broadway production. In a reported feud with fellow judge Nicki Minaj, Carey seemed knowledgable about the film after being compared to Regina George.
