Mean Girls Movie Reunion: Are We Ready for It? [WATCH VIDEOS]
Hearts of every kid (and even, kids-at-heart) that grew up watching “Mean Girls” in 2004 got broken when THE Tina Fey, brains and creator of the popular film, shot down plans for a cinematic reunion in celebration of the movie’s 10th year anniversary. Maybe Fey is thinking, are we ready for a “Mean Girls” movie reunion?
Here’s the synopsis of the “Mean Girls” movie posted on Movie Web’s site:
“Raised in the African bush country by her zoologist parents, Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) thinks she knows about “survival of the fittest.” But the law of the jungle takes on a whole new meaning when the home-schooled 15-year-old enters public high school for the first time and falls prey to the psychological warfare and unwritten social rules that teenage girls face today.
Directed by Mark Waters (“Freaky Friday”), from a screenplay by Emmy winner Tina Fey (“Saturday Night Live”), “Mean Girls” is a fictional comedy based on Rosalind Wiseman’s New York Times bestseller, Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends and Other Realities of Adolescence, which Time praised as “a chilling account of the life our girls navigate in their school lunchrooms and hallways,” read the “Mean Girls” synopsis on Movie Web.
According to E! Online, speculations about a “Mean Girls” movie reunion escalated even more when Lindsay Lohan, who played Cady Heron in the film, dropped the almost “Fetch-Bomb” on her recent appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” for the promotion of her latest docuseries entitled “Lindsay” on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) last March 6, 2014.
On Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14, 2014), Lindsay also posted an Instagram photo of herself with her former “Mean Girls” co-stars “Bad-ass Kenny G” Rajiv Surendra and Daniel Franzese, who played Damian.
Fate or destiny in the unlikely form of Jimmy Fallon and his show had brought Tina and “Mean Girls” star Lindsay Lohan in a rare encounter during Fallon’s first “The Tonight Show” episode on Feb. 17, 2014.
In a recent interview for “Muppets: Most Wanted,” Tina shared with Access Hollywood her conversation with Lindsay about the upcoming anniversary and a panel discussion which involves a plate of hot wings.
“No, it’s definitely not a movie,” said Tina in the Access Hollywood report.
“It’s just the anniversary is coming up, so everybody get your pink shirts. It’s been 10 years. You can tell when you look at me. It’s been 10 years,” Fey added.
Extra also had the 411 on the rumours and asked Tina about the speculated “Mean Girls” movie reunion.
“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,” said Fey in the Extra report.
Unfortunately, it looks like the “Mean Girls” movie reunion is still not going to happen, but fret not because there’s still some hope left for fans of the beloved movie. According to E! Online, Tina Fey is planning a musical version of the film.
“We’re working on the musical, that’s going to be in a couple years, I guess. So hopefully there will be like a screening or a party, but that’s it. But that would be good, right?” said Fey in an interview with E! Online.
Even though a lot of fans feel that they are ready for a “Mean Girls” movie reunion, it looks like they will just have to keep on waiting, hoping and praying for one.
