Tina Fey - Tina Fey Keen To Get Mean Girls: The Musical Underway In 2013

Actress Tina Fey is hoping to get the green light from movie executives to move forward with plans to turn her hit Lindsay Lohan movie Mean Girls into a stage musical this year (13).

The 30 Rock creator and star wrote the screenplay for the popular 2004 teen comedy, which was partly based on Rosalind Wiseman's non-fiction work Queen Bees and Wannabes, and now she is eager to see the film make its transition to the stage.

Fey has been working on a musical adaptation with her composer husband Jeff Richmond for several months and she wants to get the ball rolling on its production sooner rather than later - as soon as she can convince Paramount film bosses to sign on the dotted line.

Addressing the status of the musical project, Fey tells E! News, "We want to, I'd love to. I'm trying to develop it with my husband, who does all the music for 30 Rock, and I think Paramount's on board."
