The producers of devilishly funny teen comedy Mean Girls are looking to produce a new chuckler for New Line/ Warner Bros entitled Mean Moms.
Grotesque American spelling aside, Moms is being viewed as a sort of sequel to the Lindsay Lohan-Tina Fey-starrer, and is being adapted from a book by the same self-help author Rosalind Wiseman.
According to Variety, the flick will follow a married mother of two who moves to the “high class suburbs” from a small town in America, and is confronted with the “cut throat world of competitive parenting”.
Sort of like Desperate Housewives. Dara and Chad Creasey are currently adapting Wiseman’s 2006 novel, the gloriously overblown title Queen Bee Moms & Kingpin Dads: Dealing with the Parents, Teachers, Coaches, and Counselors Who Can Make--or Break--Your Child's Future.
No word yet if any of the adults/kids from Mean Girls will be putting in an appearance, but if Tina Fey isn’t recruited it’ll be a travesty – that woman could read a map and be hilarious.
Think there aren't enough films about mother issues? Drop us a line...
