Mean Girls is headed back to the big screen… as a musical.

Paramount Pictures has optioned the hit Broadway show based on the 2004 film with the intention of bringing it to a theater near you. The same announcement also revealed that the stage show will hit London’s West End next year.

“I’m very excited to bring Mean Girls back to the big screen,” Tina Fey, who wrote the film and stage production, told Variety. “It’s been incredibly gratifying to see how much the movie and the musical have meant to audiences. I’ve spent sixteen years with these characters now. They are my Marvel Universe and I love them dearly.”

No cast has been announced at this time. Mean Girls nabbed 12 Tony nominations for its Broadway production which launched in 2018. The show joins the recent rash of musicals getting the Hollywood makeover, including West Side Story and In the Heights, both of which hit movie screens this year.
