Paramount Pictures has released a movie trailer for the official sequel to Mark Waters‘ 2004 teen comedy Mean Girls. Oh and this isn’t a joke trailer at Lindsay Lohan’s expense, it’s actually a real movie — but don’t worry, it’s just another one of those horrible direct to dvd sequels produced by “Paramount Famous Productions“, the division responsible Van Wilder: Freshman Year and Wrong Turn At Tahoe. And don’t say we didn’t predict a direct to DVD Mean Girls sequel in 2008, because we did. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump. As always, leave your thoughts in the comments below.
Directed by 57-year old Primetime Emmy award winner Melanie Mayron, a television vetren who some of you will remember as Melissa Steadman on thirtysomething, but she has since gone behind the camera, directing episodes of New York Undercover, Dawson’s Creek, Arli$$, In Treatment, The Naked Brothers Band, 90210, Greek and the 10 Things I Hate About You television series. She also directed the 1995 film The Baby-sitters Club, Slap Her… She’s French, and Zeyda and the Hitman.
