Lindsay Lohan Will ‘Harass’ Tina Fey Into Writing Mean Girls 2

And she wants them all to be cheating housewives this time around...

Although Mean Girls is way in the past – it was released like, 10 years ago – its relevance lives on, not least through Lindsay Lohan, who will forever be that girl from* Mean Girls* until she stars in anything better than Mean Girls.

Anyway, that’s why it’s great that she’s still happy to talk about that singular apex of her career to date. The actress, who’s set to blow people away with her debut performance in the theatre – in London’s West End, no less – told Time Out that she’s still got designs on her old role.

‘People love the movie. How do you top that?’ she said. Well, indeed, maybe that’s where Lindsay’s problems lie. Just like Jennifer Grey fell by the wayside after Dirty Dancing and Robin Tunney was basically done for after The Craft, maybe it was just a matter of the role dooming her a bit with a huge weight of expectation for bigger and better? Hmmm.

Anyway, she continued: ‘I was with Tina [Fey, who wrote Mean Girls] the other day and I said we should do another Mean Girls – like an older version, where they're all housewives and cheating. That would be really funny. I'll harass Tina to write it.’

Though Lindsay, at 28, might be a little young to play a housewife, Rachel McAdams, who played Regina George in the film is 35, so Tina could just average out the ages and make them all about 23 (our maths is bad. Where are the Mathletes when you need them?).

And then, this update could totally work; after all, Desperate Housewives wouldn’t have deteriorated into a slapstick befuddlement of nonsense and red herrings if Tina Fey had been at the helm of its writing team. We won’t hold our breath, but please can the earth’s creative minds of brilliant women spit something that good out again?
