When a movie as perfect as Mean Girls comes out, of course we're going to want to see more of it. Well, the world has been clamoring for a sequel to the comedy pretty much ever since it hit theaters in 2004, and its star, Lindsay Lohan, wants to make it happen just as much as you do.
During a live chat with CNN on Facebook Thursday, the actress was asked if she wanted to do more comedies in the future, and there's already one in particular that she has in mind. "I have been trying so hard to do a Mean Girls 2. It is not in my hands,” she said. “I know that Tina Fey, and Lorne Michaels, and all of Paramount [Pictures], everyone's very busy. But I will keep forcing it and pushing it on them until we do it.”
In fact, LiLo pretty much already has the story and casting for the sequel all worked out. "I would love to have Jamie Lee Curtis, Jimmy Fallon in the movie. I have already written a treatment for it. I just need a response," she told CNN. "I know Mark Waters, who's the director, he would happily come back."
Well, this has us excited for many reasons, mostly because we're just curious what Lindsay has dreamed up for her character Cady Heron and the rest of the Mean Girls gang. Perhaps she picked up some ideas during her FaceTime reunion with the actor who played her Mean Girls love interest Aaron Samuels, Jonathan Bennett, in October (sadly, not on October 3)? A Mean Girls 2 TV movie did air in 2011, but really none of the original cast members were a part of it, except for Tim Meadows reprising his role as Principal Duvall.
Lindsay also has the support of Lacey Chabert, who played Gretchen Wieners in Mean Girls, for a sequel to the film. "I would love for them to do a sequel, but who knows if they'll bring the whole group back together, but it would be really nice to get in touch with everyone," she said during a 2014 appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
The writer and star of Mean Girls, Tina Fey, also kept our hopes alive that we'll one day see a musical adaptation of the movie hit the stage when she appeared on WWHL in March. Get a taste of what Tina has in the works for this production, below.
