Tina Fey opens up to the possibility of a 'Mean Girls' musical

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Tina Fey has admitted that she isn’t past a Mean Girls musical.

The 2004 comedy, which Fey wrote the screenplay for starred the likes of Rachel McAdams, Fey, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Seyfried and Lacey Chabert, centered around three "mean girls" from high school who rally around the innocent Lohan after she enrolls in her first American high school since living in Africa.

Fey discussed her desire to create a Mean Girls musical with E! News exclaiming, “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."

Not only is Fey onboard for a Mean Girls musical, she is ready to rally in the likes of American Idol judge Mariah Carey following one of her many feuds with co-judge, Nicki Minaj. “I think Mariah won. Like, Mariah seemed to really know all the characters."

If the musical does get the green light, it is questionable if Fey will bring back the likes of Lohan following negative reviews from the New York Times on how terrible she is to work with on set. Fey will, however, call upon Carey to take over Amy Poehler’s role as the “cool mom.”
