Tina Fey plots Mean Girls musical

Tina Fey is developing a 'Mean Girls' musical.

The '30 Rock' comedienne - who wrote and featured in the 2004 film starring Lindsay Lohan - is looking to bring the hit teen comedy to the stage with the help of her husband Jeff Richmond.

Quizzed about a possible 'Mean Girls' musical on the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards in Los Angeles last night (27.01.13), she told E! News: "Maybe! We want to. I would love to. I'm trying to develop it with my husband, who does all the music for '30 Rock' and I think Paramount's onboard."

While the musical is very much in the early stages, the 42-year-old star feels 'Triumphant' singer Mariah Carey - who got into an argument with fellow 'American Idol' judge Nicki Minaj about the movie on the show - would make a great candidate for the role of villain Regina George's ditzy, 'cool' mother in the stage show.

Tina, who "loved" the argument, said: "I think Mariah won. Like, Mariah seemed to really know all the characters. Maybe she can play Amy Poehler's part in the musical."

'Mean Girls', which is about a group of cliquey high school girls who make each other's lives hell, catapulted main actress Lindsay even further in the Hollywood limelight, and also made stars out of Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried.
