Lindsay Lohan appears to want a “Mean Girls” sequel as bad as the fans.
Actress Lindsay Lohan is eager to make a sequel of her 2004 comedy film Mean Girls. She has already written a treatment for the film and has a cast in mind. Speaking to CNN Abu Dhabi correspondent Becky Anderson during a live Facebook interview, she expressed her interest in reprising her role of Cady Heron in a sequel to the 2004 hit. The actress is currently in the UAE exploring business opportunities. She also hosted a New Year’s eve party at a club in Dubai.
During the chat, Lohan expressed her interest in reprising her role of Cady Heron in a sequel.
“I have been trying so hard to do a Mean Girls 2. It is not in my hands. I know that [writer] Tina Fey and [producer] Lorne Michaels and all of Paramount are very busy.… I will keep forcing it and pushing it on them until we do it,” Lohan said.
Lohan didn’t give out any details about the treatment, but was very enthusiastic about the cast.
"I would love to have, like, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jimmy Fallon in the movie. I've already written a treatment for it. So I just need a response," she added. "I know Mark Waters, who was the director, would happily come back."
Paramount made $129 million from the global exhibition of “Mean Girls” in 2004 but spent only $17 million on its production. But the problem for “Mean Girls 2” could be Lindsay Lohan. Even if she is the one actively pushing the project, she is currently a PR problem, Movieweb notes. In the past few years, Lindsay Lohan has been in and out of rehab for drugs and has a record of public meltdowns.
In October, the Mean Girls musical was announced. Set to open next year, the musical was confirmed via the film’s official Twitter account and Facebook page.
The film’s Facebook page and Twitter account stated that the musical would be coming to Washington, D.C. in the fall of 2017.
The musical was first confirmed in March, with Fey telling The Metro: “My husband, (composer) Jeff Richmond and I, (along with lyricist) Nell Benjamin, have been working on it.” Nell Benjamin has previously worked on the Legally Blonde musical.
The exact location, opening date or theatre is yet to be revealed but official Instagram and Twitter accounts have been set up to keep up with the Mean Girls musical news.
