The beloved movie Mean Girls has inspired plenty of quotable moments, memes, and its own random holiday, but for all of the love it got, the stars of the film never returned for a direct sequel. Now one of them has an idea to bring Cady and the Plastics back together.
“I have been trying so hard to do a Mean Girls 2,” she said. “It is not in my hands. I know that Tina Fey and Lorne Michaels and all of Paramount are very busy. But I will keep forcing it and pushing it on them until we do it.”

While mum on details about her idea for the film, she wants to bring Freaky Friday co-star Jamie Lee Curtis and Jimmy Fallon into the movie. Despite Hollywood’s love of nostalgia in recent years with its reboots and revivals, she’s having trouble getting a response.
“I have already written a treatment for it,” Lohan explained. “I just need a response. I know Mark Waters, the director. He’d happily come back.”
Lohan, however, faces an uphill battle. Fey has already spoken about not being interested in making a Mean Girls sequel despite Paramount asking her to make one for years, and stars Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried have both built extensive film careers since Mean Girls and may not necessarily want or need to sign onto the film. And lest we forget, there was already a Mean Girls 2 and it didn’t exactly sit well with viewers.
