Lindsay Lohan Wants A 'Mean Girls' Sequel To Happen, And We Think That's So Fetch
If you went to high school in the early 2000s, chances are that Mean Girls was a movie that, while hilarious, felt all too true to what you were dealing with at the time.
The story of a girl with an unconventional home life having to adjust to the realities of high school cliques is definitely not a new concept for a movie, but thanks to an amazing cast and razor-sharp writing from Tina Fey, Mean Girls became an instant classic with teenagers everywhere. Lindsay Lohan was at the peak of her career and was super likable as Cady Heron, and the trio of Rachel McAdams, Lacey Chabert, and Amanda Seyfried were fun as hell to hate as the "Plastics" that bullied everyone in the school.
The movie was down to earth, extremely funny, and surprisingly relatable if you ever went through teenage drama while in high school. We still love it to this day, and apparently we're not the only ones either; Lindsay Lohan has been making a push for the movie to get the long-awaited sequel it deserves.
Things haven't exactly been easy for LiLo since the mid-2000s. After a couple of box office bombs, an immensely tumultuous personal life (largely her relationship with her father), and several stints in rehab, her career is nowhere near the heights it reached around when Mean Girls came out.
She seems to have begun sorting things out though, and her first order of business is apparently to try to get the Mean Girls sequel made.
For starters, she's already tried to get in touch with Emma Stone to join the cast.

While that hasn't panned out, she decided to step up her call to the original cast and writers as well. Speaking to E! Online, the actress stated:
"Mean Girls 2 the movie — this is the importance. We need Rachel McAdams! We need the whole cast back! I'd love to do it again. We had so much fun making it. Mark Waters is such a great director, Tina Fey is an amazing writer, Paramount was great to work with — we all had a blast."
It's worth noting that a Mean Girls 2 does exist, but it was a direct-to-DVD cash-in by the studio that featured almost none of the original cast or crew. So, let's just forget about that one.
What do you think? Do you wanna see the original cast return for another Mean Girls?
