It would be an understatement to say that things aren’t going so well for Lindsay Lohan. The Punk’d alum’s career has plummeted….not to mention, Lilo could be looking at jail time. With rumors of a Mean Girls musical confirmed by Tina Fey, it looks Lindsay just might have an opportunity for a much-needed career comeback.
It seems like it’s been eons since Lindsay Lohan received praise for her portrayal of the sweet Cady Heron in Mean Girls. Since that short-lived burst of career success, Lindsay has appeared in a few panned filmed and been rejected for several others in which she displayed interest. With her current career options limited to Dancing with the Stars, we’re not sure how Lilo’s going to be able to pay those hefty legal bills (aside from Charlie Sheen donations, that is). A return to her former role in Mean Girls could mean, at best, a career comeback, and at worst, the ability to pay off some of the crazy debt Lindsay’s managed to accumulate.
It looks like a Mean Girls return could be in the works for Lindsay, but that all will depend on casting decisions. The good news is, Tina Fey has confirmed that a musical version of the hit movie is indeed in the works. She told E! News, “ I would love to [create a Mean Girls musical]. I’m trying to develop it with my husband, who does all the music for 30 Rock and I think Paramount’s onboard.”
Only problem is, mum’s the word on whether Lindsay would be allowed to return as Cady Heron. Tina did mention that she’d like to see Mariah Carey come on board as Regina’s mom, but she didn’t reveal any plans for the rest of the cast.
