The classic 2004 film Mean Girls is coming back to the movie screens, except in a musical way. Tina Fey, the original screenplay writer, who also starred in the Mean Girls film as Ms. Norbury, is working with Paramount Pictures to get the ball rolling. Mean Girls has recently been turned into a broadway musical, first launched in 2017, written by Tina Fey. So, this upcoming film will be an adaptation of the musical. We’ll still get the cattiness, and quotes like “You Can’t Sit With Us”, but there will be some music involved.
“It’s been incredibly gratifying to see how much the movie and the musical have meant to audiences. I’ve spent 16 years with these characters now. They are my Marvel Universe and I love them dearly.” Fey said in a statement.
The upcoming film will display the original North Shore High setting, where all of the characters attended high school. The trio Regina, Gretchen, and Karen, most known as “The Plastics” will have a song and dance to go with their catty situations in the film. For example, the musical featured a song called “Meet The Plastics”. “This whole school humps my leg like a chihuahua,” sings Regina. This is an idea of what the upcoming adaptation will be referring to.
It has not yet been made official if the new film will star the Broadway cast, or if they’ll bring on new talents. Either way, fans are looking forward to this new project.
