The cult classic Mean Girls might soon be making its way to the stage for a musical, but that’s not all going on for the Tina Fey-penned comedy. According to Deadline, a spin-off of the 2004 flick is in the works – and this time it’s the moms, not the hormonal teenage girls, that will be going at it. Mean Moms, as it is expected to be called, follows a mother who is plucked from the down-home comforts of the idyllic small American town into the world of the wealthy suburbs – and its shady adult inhabitants.
The film is based off a book from Rosalind Wiseman, the same author whose tome Queen Bees and Wannabes inspired Mean Girls. The movie draws inspiration from Queen Bee Moms & Kingpin Dads: Dealing with the Parents, Teachers, Coaches, and Counselors Who Can Make — or Break — Your Child’s Future and word is that they are looking to recruit Jennifer Aniston for the film. Nothing is set in stone as Aniston is currently working on other projects this summer.
New Line Cinema has tapped Sean Anders to direct the film, which we expect to be filled with the kind of shade and underhandedness one can only find in a Real Housewives episode. In other words, this one could be really, really good.
