Tina Fey is working on a “Mean Girls” reunion of sorts, but sadly it won’t be in the form of another movie.
The 2004 comedy, which will celebrate its 10-year anniversary in April, was adapted by Fey from Rosalind Wiseman’s 2002 book “Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and Other Realities of Adolescence.”
The cult classic starred a pre-rehab Lindsay Lohan, now 27, pre-“Notebook” Rachel McAdams, now 35, and the troupe of “Plastics” — pre-“Veronica Mars” Amanda Seyfriend and post-“Party of Five” Lacey Chabert.
Doing the press rounds for her latest comedy, “Muppets Most Wanted,” Fey addressed the rumors and her role in starting them.
“Yeah, I saw her at the first episode of the ‘Tonight Show.’ We did that bit with Jimmy, and I said to her, ‘Oh, I think someone may call us about doing some kind of reunion because next month is the 10th anniversary of the movie,’” Fey told Access Hollywood.
The “Saturday Night Live” alum said that, realistically, the get-together would just be a panel discussion of some sort, not another movie.
