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.

    fyi- this film is NOT straight to DVD. It has been confirmed it will be a TV film.

    I’m glad she turned it down, and that she’s in a state of her career where she doesn’t need to take every offer that’s handed to her.

    I would have to think that a TV movie is probably worse, because they cut it down like crazy just to fit the time slot.

    Fey was and is right to have nothing to do with ths sequel. it should not be happening, but because they can bank on the successful original, they are. Can anyone say total mess like Lindsay Lohan’s Labor Pains???

    Well, yes and no. Yes, it will be a pretty short movie (my guess is 80 minutes), but look at how awful straight to DVD movies are. Atleast some TV movies are good, and atleast this one has established actors in it…
