For the past few months there have been rumors of a Mean Girls 2. I thought Hollywood was just making jokes, like hollywood does so often, BUT NO! I always imagined Hollywood saying "Mean Girls 2?" and we're like "Really?" and Hollywood would be like "NAW, we're just joshin'!" and we'd all be ok. BUT NO! That is not at all what happened and it is the worst thing! ever! For whatever reason this movie is happening. The first one was based on a book called "Queen Bees and Wannabees" which was a self-help book for girls in high school. The second one isn't. The first one was written by Tina Fey. The second one is being written by Elana Lesser and Cliff Ruby, who wrote Balto. The two have almost identical imdb pages. The first one came out in 2004, the second one will come out in 2011! Here's the summary of Mean Girls 2:
"The story revolves around a new high school student, Jo, who agrees to befriend an outcast, Abby, at the urging of Abby's wealthy mother in exchange for paying all of Jo's costs for the college of her dreams. Jo and Abby team up to take on the school's "mean girls," the Plastics aka Mandi, Hope, and Chasity. While Mandi's older brother Tyler falls in love with Jo. The story becomes a high stakes battle of loyalty that ultimately comes to a head when one of the girls finds out that her friendship has been bought and paid for."
The only similarities between the first and second one is that the mean girls are called "plastics." Also, the second one sounds like the worst thing. ever.
