Mean Girls (2024) Release Date: Tina Fey’s Broadway adaptation of the 2004 comedy Mean Girls is making its leap from the stage to the big screen. The iconic comedy, which flipped the script for teen movies, particularly those geared toward female audiences, was initially penned by Fey just before the mid-2000s. Over a decade later, Fey transformed this comedic gem into a musical, taking Broadway by storm from 2017 to 2020.
Fast forward to now, and the writer-producer is completing the circle by bringing the stage adaptation back to the movies. Set for release in 2024, Mean Girls will mark two decades since Tina Fey’s initial screenplay jumpstarted the careers of Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, and more. With a cast including talents from the Broadway show and some familiar faces from the original film, expectations for Mean Girls (2024) are sky-high.
