Lindsay Lohan is still very interested in making a Mean Girls sequel, which she hopes will mark her movie “come back.”
The 33-year-old actress made this declaration during her recent interview on Lights Out With David Spade, via Entertainment Weekly, admitting, “I should probably get back to doing movies at some point.”
Lohan then added, “I think I was hanging on to [Mean Girls] for a really long time. I wanted to come back with a Mean Girls 2. To work with Tina [Fey], and the whole crew again, and [director] Mark Waters. That was really what I wanted. I was excited to do that. But that’s all in their hands, really. So that would definitely be an exciting thing.”
There has actually already been a sequel to Mean Girls, which was released back in 2011. But it premiered on TV, and the only cast member to return was Tim Meadows, who reprised his role as Principal Ron Duvall.
No doubt Paramount would be interested in a direct sequel, that featured the original cast and crew, as Mean Girls cost only £13.5 million ($17 million) to make and then went on to gross £104 million ($130 million) at the box office.
There’s every chance that Tina Fey, who wrote the 2004 comedy, could be tempted to return, too, as she recently oversaw a musical adaptation of Mean Girls that premiered on Broadway back in March, 2018.
Plus, there has been quite a bit of speculation that a follow-up or spin-off would be made, as Mean Moms was announced back in early 2014, with Jennifer Aniston even attached to star. However, the comedy was subsequently placed on hold.
This isn’t the first time that Lohan has openly declared her interest in the Mean Girls sequel, as she has previously pitched her idea to Fey, and then ever asked her to write the screenplay. Lohan ever wrote her own treatment for the film, which she hoped would star Jamie Lee Curtis and Jimmy Fallon.
But, despite Lohan’s best efforts, a Mean Girls sequel still doesn’t sound as if it is going to happen anytime soon. In fact, with a movie version of Tina Fey’s musical now in development instead, it seems more unlikely than ever.
