Anyone who has been a teenager in the last twenty years knows how iconic the first Mean Girls movie is.
From Regina George’s ruthlessness to Gretchen Weiner’s hair, so many of us know the story like the back of our hands and would love to see the stars of the flick unite. Written by 30 Rock creator Tina Fey and directed by Freaky Friday‘s Mark Waters, the movie is a total cult classic of teen comedy.
So much so, that many fans have been lusting after a sequel for years, despite one coming in 2011. This came as a huge disappointment though, as it starred a totally different cast.
The original 2004 movie has also been adapted into a stage musical, which was met with a positive reception from critics.
However, the latest and most exciting news is that 2 of the OG movie’s stars have confirmed they would be up for creating a sequel to the much-loved film.
Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Seyfried, who played Cadey Heron and Karen Smith respectively, opened up about their hopes for a potential sequel.
Seyfried interviewed Lohan for Interview Magazine, where they discussed everything from Lohan’s latest movie Falling for Christmas to their memories from filming Mean Girls almost twenty years ago.
“I think people still see us as teenagers,” said Lohan.
“As Karen and Cady,” quipped Seyfried. “That was my first movie. You were in the middle of the whole thing and you created a really fun vibe. I didn’t know how good it was going to be.”
Lohan agreed: “I had a feeling, just because you don’t always have that much fun making movies and I knew it was going to show through. But I never realized what it would be, still today.”
Seyfried went on to describe how, for a time, she found herself fed up with being known as just Karen from Mean Girls, but now she finds herself proud of the role. So much so, that she even longs to get the whole gang back together for a reunion.
“I would kill just to do one week, all of us playing our own roles on Mean Girls on Broadway,” she said.
“That would be really fun,” Lohan replied.
However, from here, our hopes became slightly dashed, when Seyfried asked: “Because a Mean Girls 2 is never going to happen, is it?”
“I don’t know. I heard something about it being a movie musical and I was like, ‘Oh no.’ We can’t do that. It has to be the same tone,” Lohan said.
“Anyway, Tina [Fey] is busy. She’ll get around to it. Listen, we’re all part of each other’s worlds whether we like it or not, and it is really nice to be in contact as adults,” responded Seyfried.
The pair did seem keen to revisit their memories, though.
“I’ll never forget any of those moments,” Seyfried admitted. “We were way too young, having way too much fun, and the movie ended up being more than anyone could have imagined. We’ve had such crazy lives.”
Fey has previously spoken about plans for a reboot of the franchise.
She told Entertainment Weekly back in 2014: “At the time we did want to start the conversation about the sequel, and for whatever reason I was like, ‘No!!! We shouldn’t do that!’ Now I look back and I’m like, ‘Why?’ But now, no—it’s too late now.”
