Tina Fey has once again announced plans for a possible musical adaptation of her classic teen film, "Mean Girls," giving hope to die-hard Lindsay Lohan fans and mathletes everywhere.
After winning a Screen Actors Guild Award for her role as the indomitable Liz Lemon in 30 Rock, the former SNL writer told E! a stage version of the 2004 movie is in the works. "I'm trying to develop it, actually, with my husband, who does all the music for 30 Rock. And I think Paramount's onboard."
Fey has floated the idea idea of a stage adaption before, suggesting in an interview with MTV in 2007 that her husband, composer Jeff Richmond, had written some 'Mean Girls'-inspired songs. And she got our hopes up again earlier this year when Vulture probed the former SNL writer about the rumored musical: "I'm pretty sure — I'm confident that Paramount will give us the permission to work on it, but I think [my husband's] secretly been working on it for years!"
The project would reportedly bring the roles of Cady Heron, Regina George, Janis Ian and Mr. Duvall back into the spotlight, and revive the characters originally played by Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Tim Meadows, Amy Poehler, and Ana Gasteyer. While we wait to see if Fey and her husband can work their magic, we'll savor the words Fey spoke in 2007:
