First a film, then a musical and now a musical film!

The hit teen drama Mean Girls is being turned into a movie. Multiple outlets confirm that Tina Fey’s Mean Girls Broadway musical is heading to the big screen. Fey wrote and starred in the original 2004 film, also penned the script for the forthcoming musical Mean Girls film. 

“I’m very excited to bring Mean Girls back to the big screen,” Fey said in a statement. “It’s been incredibly gratifying to see how much the movie and the musical have meant to audiences.”

“I’ve spent sixteen years with these characters now,” she added. “They are my Marvel Universe and I love them dearly.”

Co-producer Lorne Michaels added, “It has been a joy to work on Mean Girls and to watch it go from film, to musical, and now to musical film. I am very proud that Tina’s story and characters continue to resonate with new generations.” 

Reportedly, no director is set at this time.
