Rachel McAdams Wants To Play Regina George In An Adult 'Mean Girls' Sequel
Anyone else ready to be personally victimised by the icy teen queen all over again? We're cutting twin holes in our tees in anticipation.
The actress discussed the possibility of returning to the iconic role on the Heroes of Health: COVID-19 live-stream.
During a Q&A, a fan asked the actress which of her characters she would play again if she had the opportunity.
"I always want to go back and do all of them again," said Rachel.
"You really fall in love with them. I mean, it would be fun to play Regina George later in life and see where life took her after Mean Girls."
We can see it now: an older, Tiger Mum version of The Plastics leader, dressed in a pink two-piece and filming a new generation of Mean Girls at the North Shore High dance competition.
Her girls keep her young, after all.
Rachel's interest in playing an older Regina isn't a new thing, either. Back in 2016 she told E! that the original cast "got to have a photo-shoot a couple of years ago - and it wasn't enough."
On the subject of the original cast, it seems Rachel isn't the only former member open to an adult reboot of the hit noughties movie.
Last month, on April 14th, Lindsay Lohan shared her interest in reuniting the OG cast for a sequel during an appearance on the talk show Lights Out with David Spade.
"I wanted to come back with a Mean Girls 2 with the same cast, work with Tina Fey, and the whole crew again," she said.
"That was really what I wanted, I was excited to do that. But that's all in their hands, really."
The original 2004 movie cemented its place in teen comedy history and remains a treasure trove of quotable one-liners ("on Wednesdays we wear pink", "I'm not a regular mom, I'm a cool mom", we could go on) and fan-favourite memes.
While a Mean Girls sequel isn't confirmed, we do have something to get excited about, because screenplay writer Tina Fey announced in January this year that she is making Mean Girls: The Musical - which is based on the OG movie - into a film.
Further details of the project have yet to be released, but given Lindsay and Rachel's comments, we're already day-dreaming of a full-scale reunion.
Come on Tina, make it happen.
