Tina Fey: Mean Girls Musical May HappenBy: Sean Patterson - January 28, 2013
Though Tina Fey is, perhaps, most well-known for hosting the Weekend Update segment of Saturday Night Live and playing Liz Lemon on 30 Rock, one turning point in her career can be traced to the movie Mean Girls.
Mean Girls was written by Fey, and even starred the comedian herself as a disrespected high school math teacher. Though the movie was marketed as a teen comedy about backstabbing popular girls, the smart humor in the flick managed to make it a cult-classic and a hit with critics. Mean Girls was also one of the last movies to feature a pre-meltdown Lindsay Lohan, and is Amanda Seyfried’s first movie.
Now, it appears that even more Mean Girls could be on the way.
In an interview with E! on the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, Fey revealed that the rumored Mean Girls musical is actually in the works.
“I would love to,” said Fey when asked about the project. “I’m trying to develop it, actually, with my husband, who does all the music for 30 Rock and I think Paramount’s on-board.”
