Is it October 3rd already? Because if Lindsay Lohan got her way, a Mean Girls sequel would already be on its way.
When Mean Girls was first released in 2004, fans took to the movie as they did to Van Dutch trucker hats and Motorola flip phones. Suddenly your clothes were “fetch” and every boy looked better with their hair pushed back. So naturally, they clamored for more.
Mean Girls 2, a television movie, was announced in 2011. The rage and disappointment was big: not only did none of the original principal cast return, neither did Tina Fey pen the piece. It comes as no surprise that it wasn’t too well received.
A real revival, however, might still be in the future. Mean Girls’s original leading lady Lindsay Lohan has recently talked to CNN about bringing back the gang for a second run.
“I have been trying so hard to do a Mean Girls 2. It is not in my hands,” she said during a Facebook Live stream. “I know that Tina Fey, and Lorne Michaels and all of Paramount [Pictures] are very busy. But I will keep forcing it and pushing it on them until we do it.”
Lindsay is not the only one who’s ready for a reunion of the Plastics. Daniel Franzese, who played everyone’s favorite GBFF Damien, took to twitter to give his approval.
Earlier this year, so did Rachel McAdams, the meanest of all girls, Regina George: “I loved that movie. I love Tina Fey. I love the girls. I mean, to get to kind of have a reunion would be…we got to have a reunion at a photo shoot a couple of years ago and it was over like that and it wasn’t enough. I was back in it.”
I'm down. https://t.co/p5W4Bx9wNH

Lindsay is ready to act on her words as well.
“I have already written a treatment for it. I just need a response”, she said. “I know Mark Waters, the director; he’d happily come back”.
With most of the original cast interested in a reunion, all we need to finalize a Mean Girls revival is Tina Fey. Without her wit and her talent to nail down teenage issues in a comical way, a reunion would just not be the same.
How do you feel about another Mean Girls movie? Yay or nay?
