After catching our attention in the 2004 hit Mean Girls, Amanda Seyfried gained fame in 2008 with Meryl Streep’s blockbuster musical Mamma Mia! In 2020, she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her work in David Fincher’s Mank. The list of critically regarded films in Seyfried’s career also includes Les Misérables, Fathers and Daughters, and Things Heard and Seen. And now Seyfried has indicated a strong desire to join Tina Fey’s musical adaptation of the enduring Rachel McAdams-starring film, Mean Girls.

Amanda Seyfried is excited at the prospect of being a part of the Mean Girls musical revival

In the upcoming musical film adaption, Amanda Seyfried is thrilled about the prospect of returning to the Mean Girls universe. Her co-stars from the original movie, Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, and Lacey Chabert, are also enthusiastic about the idea. Though it’s not possible for her to return to her original role, still Seyfried is very excited at the opportunity. Seyfried is considering playing the mothers of their characters in a cameo appearance. Despite everyone’s excitement, they haven’t yet read the screenplay.

The upcoming movie picks on the plot with a new ensemble. However, Seyfried once suggested that the original actors take their parts to Broadway. Seyfried had said while talking to Interview, “I would kill just to do one week, all of us playing our own roles on ‘Mean Girls’ on Broadway,” feeling that there wouldn’t be a Mean Girls sequel. Seyfried wanted to take the production to the Great White Way Broadway theatre.

Tina Fey will return to her legendary role

In the upcoming Mean Girls film musical, Tina Fey will make a comeback to the classroom as Ms. Norbury, a math instructor. The former Saturday Night Live performer is making a comeback for this musical adaptation of the cherished 2004 high school comedy, which also stars Tim Meadows as Principal Duval. Tina Fey humorously remarked on their return while being on Late Night with Seth Meyers, saying, “We couldn’t age out. Teachers work forever.” She even made a joke about wanting to keep her character’s ageless nature, likening it to Gilligan from Gilligan’s Island showing up at a trade event.

In the first Mean Girls, Ms. Norbury’s character was cleared of drug pusher charges that were fraudulently attributed to her in the Burn Book, a scandalous diary depicted in the movie. It’s still unclear, though, if the movie musical will stick closely to the storyline of the original movie or whether Ms. Norbury would experience a comparable situation in this version. The actors who will play Cady, Regina, Janis, and Damian in the musical are Angourie Rice, Reneé Rapp, Aulii Cravalho, and Jaquel Spivey. Although the cast for The Plastics has been revealed, it is unknown how closely the new movie will resemble the beloved high school comedy.
