Mean Girls Musical: Tina Fey Working On Adaptation Of Lindsay Lohan Film

Posted: Updated:

Actress Tina Fey is hoping to get the green light from movie executives to move forward with plans to turn her hit Lindsay Lohan movie 'Mean Girls' into a stage musical this year.

The 30 Rock creator and star wrote the screenplay for the popular 2004 teen comedy, which was partly based on Rosalind Wiseman's non-fiction work Queen Bees and Wannabes, and now she is eager to see the film make its transition to the stage.

Fey has been working on a musical adaptation with her composer husband Jeff Richmond for several months and she wants to get the ball rolling on its production sooner rather than later - as soon as she can convince Paramount film bosses to sign on the dotted line.
