Tina Fey has dismissed rumors of a Mean Girls sequel, but hints that the cast could reunite to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the film’s release.
The high school comedy written by and starring Fey was a breakout hit in 2004, and fans have been eager for more ever since.
Fey, along with the movie’s star Lindsay Lohan, discussed a possible cast reunion when they both made a surprise appearance on U.S. talk show host Jimmy Fallon’s first Tonight Show episode last month (Feb14), but the former 30 Rock star insists that while she is keen to bring the team back together, penning a sequel is out of the question.
Fey explains, “I said to her (Lohan), ‘Oh, I think someone may call us about doing some kind of reunion because next month is the 10th anniversary of the movie.’ And so really… if everyone’s around we might try to do some kind of like panel discussion, but it’s not like another movie. At most, it would be like a panel discussion with a plate of hot wings. It’s definitely not a movie.”
She adds, “It’s been 10 years. You can tell when you look at me.”
While a big screen follow-up is not happening any time soon, fans can get their fix with a stage version of the movie – Fey previously revealed she and her husband/composer Jeff Richmond are in the early stages of developing a spin-off musical.
