It looks like Gretchen Wieners is out to make fetch happen all over again because Mean Girls: The Musical is being turned into a movie. According to Entertainment Weekly, the news comes as the producers of Broadway's Mean Girls finalize the decision to schedule its final showing in London's West End in late Spring of 2021.

Just like the original film, the upcoming Mean Girls adaptation — to be made under Paramount Pictures — will be produced by Tina Fey and Lorne Michaels. Fey, who wrote the book for the Broadway show, will also write the script for the film, which will feature music by Jeff Richmond and lyrics by Nell Benjamin.

"I'm very excited to bring Mean Girls back to the big screen," Fey said of the film, which recently celebrated its 15th anniversary. "It's been incredibly gratifying to see how much the movie and the musical have meant to audiences. I've spent 16 years with these characters now. They are my Marvel Universe, and I love them dearly."

The musical largely follows the same plotline as the 2004 film of the same name, but there's no telling how closely the second movie adaptation will stick to the original script. As much as we all love Cady Heron's wild journey from the African Sahara to the suburbs of Illinois and the way she scrapes her way to the top of Northshore High's social hierarchy, we're excited to see what totally grool changes Fey makes to the script (hopefully even more hilarious pranks à la foot cream to the face).
