Because remaking profitable properties never seems to end, Mean Girls is coming back to the big screen. But not as a reboot of the original 2004 movie — no, it’s headed to Hollywood as a movie version of the Broadway musical…which, of course, was based on the positively iconic 2004 movie. Which was actually adapted from a self-help book. Is your brain spinning yet?

The news was announced earlier this week by producers of the Broadway show, according to Variety.

“I’m very excited to bring ‘Mean Girls’ back to the big screen,” said writer Tina Fey, who also played teacher and falsely accused drug-pusher Ms. Norbury in the 2004 film.

“It’s been incredibly gratifying to see how much the movie and the musical have meant to audiences. I’ve spent sixteen years with these characters now. They are my Marvel Universe and I love them dearly.”

It’s too early in development to have any casting news, though obviously what we’re really hoping for is to see cameos from some of the og cast, which included a variety of stars like Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Lizzy Caplan, Lacey Chabert, and longtime Fey collaborator Amy Poehler. Not to mention two of our forever fave queers, Daniel Franzese and Jonathan Bennett.

The movie musical will again be penned by Fey, alongside the music by Jeff Richmond and Nell Benjamin. There’s no word yet on when we might see this adaptation of an adaptation of an adaptation in a theater near us, but despite having consumed so much Mean Girls content in our lives…….we’re totally hyped for it. Good call, Paramount Pictures!
