The Mean Girls are back! Well, maybe. Possibly. I mean technically, they're not, but this could be it.
Lindsay Lohan has been dying to get back in Cady's shoes since, well, always because those were the last successful shoes she was in. No offense.
She told David Spade on his Lights Out show last week: “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." (Source: Yahoo!)
Frankly, who can blame her? Mean Girls was/is fantastic and they don't make 'em like that anymore. Sure, sometimes I want to sit down and dedicate 2.5 hours to a new movie I'll probably never see again, but sometimes I just want to feel good for a quick 1.5 hours and get on with my life. Unfortunately, the genre of fun, light-hearted teeny-bopper movies with a solid cast of actors, that can be enjoyed at all ages, and stand the test of time just doesn't exist anymore. The Frat Pack days are also gone and the SNL classic alumni flicks (Tommy Boy, Happy Gilmore, Coming to America, Father of the Bride, The Wedding Singer, etc) have been gone.
What we need now is a Meaner Girls and we need it now.
Lindsay Lohan was never going to make the sequel happen on her own. (Yes, I realize a sequel was made, but I think by not acknowledging it, I'm only doing the franchise a favor.) Tina Fey was never going to put the project in motion because Lindsay suggested it. Mean Girls, The Musical is super successful and a movie adaptation is already in the works, Fey doesn't need the stress of dealing with Lohan while simultaneously trying to round up a couple of the very successful Plastics.
Unless... the queen herself WANTS to come back!
McAdams was asked whether she'd be up for going back to the part in the Heroes of Health: COVID-19 livestream in the US over the weekend.
“It would be fun to play Regina George later in her life and see where life took her!” she replied.
FUCK YES! "It would be fun" is code for "where do I sign?" No doubt.
As far as where life took Regina George, we all want to see that. Last time we saw her she was violently kicking ass on the lacrosse team and keeping her mean girls tendencies in check. But a leopard never changes his stripes, so how long did that last? My money is on her growing up to become a Real Housewife bitch people love to hate who follows in her mother's footsteps in at least one avenue…
Speaking of breasts… what happened to Karen?
She probably did something extraordinary with her life no one saw coming like become President of the United States of America.
Either that or Playboy. In fact, maybe she saved Playboy from going under. Maybe the public was over the whole bunny thing and the moment the company saw her as a mouse, a light when off and they rebranded their entire empire.
The Playboy Bunny was dead, but the new era of "Playpussy and Mouse" was very much alive. An era where women could decide if they wanted to be the pussycat or the mouse and then put it out there for all to see.
So yeah, basically, we need to know if The Plastics went on to change the world. And with Rachel McAdams in, let's get this show on the road!
