Tina Fey doesn’t want Mean Girls fans to get their hopes up about a sequel. Chances are that project will never happen.
Get ready to feel incredibly old: The aforementioned comedy was originally released almost a decade ago. Considering how frequently people reference the flick, you’d think it hit the big screen only a few years ago. Not surprisingly, some folks are still hoping that Paramount Pictures and Tina Fey will put together some sort of sequel in the near future.
Yes, this writer is painfully aware of director Melanie Mayron’s 2011 abomination Mean Girls 2. It’s obvious from the first ten minutes that Fey had absolutely nothing to do with this goofy made-for-TV sequel. In fact, let’s all pretend that this thing doesn’t exist. The less said about the flick, the better.
So will we ever get a proper follow-up to the original movie? According to Tina Fey, that’s extremely doubtful. The former 30 Rock star recently squashed rumors about a possible sequel during a recent chat with Extra TV.
“We’re coming up next month on the 10-year anniversary of the original movie. I can’t believe it either. We’re going to see if there’s any way to get everyone together, but not a movie, sadly. We’re all past high school age,” Tina explained to the outlet.
This less-than-fetch response definitely isn’t the sort of info fans were hoping to receive. However, the idea of a reunion is certainly good news. Could we possibly get a special edition Blu-ray at some point down the road, one with a lively and entertaining cast comedy? Cross your fingers and say your prayers.
Tina Fey isn’t the only Mean Girls alum who recently teased the possibility of a reunion. Lindsay Lohan appeared on The Tonight Show last week to promote her OWN series, a chat that soon turned to the 2004 comedy. Lohan told host Jimmy Fallon that the cast could get back together at some point down the road.
“This is important. This needs to happen,” the actress said. In short: She’s down for a reunion should someone decide to put this thing together.
While you’re waiting for that to come together, keep your eyes peeled for the proposed comedy Mean Moms. The flick is reportedly based on a book from author Rosalind Wiseman, whose work inspired Tina Fey’s screenplay for Mean Girls. Beth McCarthy-Miller could direct, while Jennifer Aniston is reportedly in talks to star. Unfortunately, Fey isn’t involved with this project.
Are you disappointed that Tina Fey shut down rumors about a possible Mean Girls sequel? Would you settle for a reunion?
