Tina Fey passed on ‘Mean Girls 2’
HollywoodNews.com: Tina Fey regrets that she isn’t on board with “Mean Girls 2.”
The actress-writer adapted Michael Wiseman’s novel “Queen Bees and Wannabes,” which Mark Waters directed.
Fey turned down offers from Paramount to make a sequel. Instead, “Mean Girls 2” became a straight-to-DVD production, which is being lensed currently.
“It’s funny, because now it’s shooting and I don’t really have anything to do with it,” Fey tells Digital Spy, “I haven’t read it or anything like that. Paramount was very generous and solicitous with me for several years, saying, ‘Would you like to do it?’ And at the time, I was like, ‘They should just let it be what it is!'”
Maiara Walsh (“Desperate Housewives”), Nicole Gale Anderson, Jennifer Stone and Meaghan Jette Martin are starring in “Mean Girls 2.” The plot, similar to the 2004 installment, follows two girls who must contend with the popular click, ‘The Plastics.’
Though designed as a starring vehicle for Lindsay Lohan, the first “Mean Girls” propelled the careers of Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried and Lizzy Caplan.
