Tina Fey made all of our dreams come true today as she announced that she was working on turning the 2004 hit film Mean Girls into a musical over the summer.
Fey made the announcement after being asked what her plans for the summer are now that Ellie Kemper (the lead star in Tina's comedy Nextflix Original series The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) was pregnant and filming has been delayed.
"We're working on the musical adaptation [of Mean Girls], which we're very excited about. Thanks to Ellie's pregnancy, we actually have this whole summer to focus on that," Fey explained. "Normally we would be starting up in June. This year we're going to start in August, shooting in October, and we'll be ready to come back with season three by the end of next May."
It's been over a decade since the cult film was released, and it appears the limit does not exist in terms of the film's longevity. Now, the question remains, will Amy Poehler reprise her role as star choreographer for Jingle Bell Rock? We certainly hope so. - Maddison Glendinning
