Tina Fey says she's 'trying to develop' 'Mean Girls' musical - Poll
The Plastics might be heading to Broadway.
Tina Fey, who wrote the screenplay for the 2004 film "Mean Girls," told E! News at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday, January 27, that she is working on a "Mean Girls" musical.
When asked about the possibility of a "Mean Girls" musical, Fey said, "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," she added.
The film was based on the book "Queen Bees and Wannabes" by Rosalind Wiseman and went on to gross over $129 million worldwide on a $17 million budget, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com. It's also often cited as a bright point in Lindsay Lohan's film career.
Fey also talked about a recent reference to the film made by Mariah Carey on "American Idol." During the episode, while in between auditions, Carey quoted a line from the film and challenged Minaj to name the character who said it, which she failed to do.
"I love it," Fey said about the moment. "And I think Mariah won. Like, Mariah seemed to really know all the characters. Maybe she can play Amy Poehler's part in the musical. Bring Mariah in."
In the film, Poehler played the pink sweat suit-wearing "cool mom" of the head mean girl Regina George.
Fey is gearing up for the end of "30 Rock." The show is in its seventh and final season and the finale is set to air as an hour-long episode on January 31 on NBC.
