‘It would be so much fun’: Lacey Chabert says she would ‘absolutely’ do a Mean Girls reboot – after Lindsay Lohan also expressed interest in potential sequel
Lacey Chabert has revealed she would ‘absolutely’ love to do a Mean Girls reboot.
The actress, 40, played Gretchen Wieners in the teen classic which has developed a strong cult following since its release in 2004.
During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Lacey was asked if she would be up for returning to her role in a sequel.
She said: ‘Absolutely. I think it would be so much fun to see where these women are now and if their kids are the new Mean Girls. I would love to know what they’re doing.’
Addressing the film’s writer Tina Fey, Lacey looked into the camera and said: ‘Let’s just do it.’
The film starred Lindsay Lohan as Cady Heron, a teenager who moves from Africa to suburban Illinois.
She ends up joining a clique of popular girls called The Plastics but runs into the crosshairs of its leader Regina George (Rachel McAdams) when she falls for her boyfriend Aaron Samuels (Jonathan Bennett).
Lacey was also asked about her famous Mean Girls catchphrase ‘so fetch’ which she said people still say to her ‘everyday of my life’.
She added: ‘I sick recently and was picking up a perscription and the pharmacist said, “Oh, you don’t look like you look very fetch today.’
Lindsay has also expressed interest in doing a Mean Girls sequel, previously sharing a throwback photo of herself with the cast and writing: ‘#tbt miss you all… sequel?’
The actress made a recent appearance on The Tonight Show and discussed the possibility of a sequel, saying: ‘I think that’s in Tina Fey’s hands.’
In her latest movie Falling For Christmas, Lindsay makes a nod to Mean Girls with a performance of Jingle Bell Rock, which she and The Plastics famously danced to in the film.
Daniel Franzese has also expressed interest in a sequel, telling the Behind the Velvet Rope podcast he would ‘love’ to do it.
He said: ‘I would do it in any form whatsoever. This movie brings people so much joy. […] I mean, I want to do a whole movie with the whole cast.
‘We all play different characters. People would love that, you know? Tina Fey’s got that power and she ain’t pulling the trigger. So I don’t know who else could do it.’
Mean Girls already spawned a made-for-TV sequel in 2011 which featured a different cast to the original film.
A stage musical based on the film was composed by Tina Fey’s husband Jeff Richmond and debuted on Broadway in 2017.
