From the Author of ‘Mean Girls’ Comes… ‘Mean Moms’
Although there will always only be one Regina George (because no one can trump Rachel McAdams. End of story), fans of Mean Girls should be pleased to hear that more cattiness is coming to the big screen based on another one of the MG author's heralded books.
Rosalind Wiseman, who penned the novel Mean Girls was based on, Queen Bees And Wannabes, will get another movie credit under her belt as her Queen Bee Moms And King Pin Dads: Dealing With The Parents, Teachers, Coaches, and Counselors Who Can Make — or Break — Your Child’s Future (it's a mouthful, we know) is being translated into Mean Moms.
According to Deadline, the film will be "a comedy that essentially takes the spirit of Mean Girls into a venue where that film company can get big female stars to galvanize the bitch-fest. The plot: A happily married mother of two moves from small town America to the high-class suburbs and is faced with confronting the cutthroat world of competitive parenting."
Big female stars, eh? Our vote's for Amy Poehler, Tina Fey and maybe Melissa McCarthy and/or Kristen Wiig thrown in there.
In other exciting news, Tina Fey confessed that a Mean Girls musical could actually happen. She says, "We want to [make a musical]. I would love to… I'm trying to develop it with my husband [Jeff Richmond], who does all the music for 30 Rock and I think Paramount's on board."
Tina's last movie, Admission (watch the trailer below), was funny, but didn't kill it at the box office. So we're all in favor of her coming back with this project.
