Sounds like a sequel to the 2004 hit ‘Mean Girls’ is on it’s way! In the original movie, Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried and Lacey Chabert played high school rivals. Now it’s time for “Mean Moms!”
New Line Cinema has tapped Beth McCarthy-Miller (“Saturday Night Live”) to adapt “Queen Bee Moms And King Pin Dads: Dealing With The Parents, Teachers, Coaches, and Counselors Who Can Make — or Break — Your Child’s Future” — a book by Rosalind Wiseman, whose “Queen Bees and Wannabes” was the inspiration for the “Mean Girls” movie, Deadline reports.
The film adaptation of Wiseman’s 2006 book focuses on a mother who encounters some grown-up mean girls in the form of suburban moms. “Mean Moms” will be produced by Jill Messick with Offspring Entertainment, according to Deadline.
While McCarthy-Miller served as a director for “SNL,” she had a chance to work with “Mean Girls” stars Tina Fey and Tim Meadows. No word as to whether “Mean Moms” will serve as a mini-reunion for the trio.
I totally loved ‘Mean Girls,’ I wonder if they’re going to bring back any of the original girls? Would anyone really hire Lindsay Lohan these days?
