Tina Fey Developing a ‘Mean Girls’ Musical

Could the Plastics be headed to Broadway? If Tina Fey has her way, quite possibly. During an interview at the SAG Awards this weekend, the Mean Girls screenwriter revealed that she and her husband (30 Rock composer Jeff Richmond) are working on a musical version of the high school comedy classic. And while casting has yet to begin, Fey joked that she could just have a role for noted movie fan Mariah Carey. Hit the jump to keep reading.

Though Disney’s The Muppets sequel will be a big-screen release, Kermit and company apparently haven’t forgotten their small-screen roots. Last month, Ricky Gervais and Ty Burrell signed to play two key human characters in the film. Now, Tina Fey is rounding out the cast as the female lead.

The plotline and other details are being kept vague for now, but thanks to a tipster who worked in production on the last film, we also have some word on what the title might be. Read on after the jump.

For high school seniors, college admissions board members can seem almost godlike in their power over the futures. From the time the kids send in their application to the time they hear back, the fate of the world seems to rest in the schools’ hands.* But as the new trailer for Admission shows, the process isn’t always a pleasant one for the folks on the other end, either.

In the new film by Paul Weitz, Tina Fey plays a Princeton admissions officer who takes a recruiting trip to an unusual school run by her former college classmate Paul Rudd. It turns into a potentially life-changing event when she crosses paths with a boy (Nat Wolff) who may or may not be the son she gave up long ago. Watch the video after the jump.

Tina Fey built her career on the fast-paced comedy of Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock, but with the latter almost at an end it’s time for her to move on to the next phase. If the trailer for Paul Weitz‘s Admission for any indication, that may just end up being movie stardom. Perhaps even as something of a dramatic actor.

Although Admission is billed as a dramatic comedy, it represents a more serious turn than anything we’ve seen from Fey before. Fey plays Portia, a Princeton admissions officer who’s forced to confront a painful secret during what initially appears to be a routine recruiting trip. Paul Rudd also stars, as a former classmate of Portia’s who harbors a crush on her, and Nat Wolff plays a teenager who may have ties to her past. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Tina Fey has had some seriously enviable onscreen suitors over the course of her career — James Marsden, Jon Hamm, and Matt Damon, just to name a few — and she may now be about to add Paul Rudd to that distinguished roster as well. Rudd is reportedly circling the male lead in Paul Weitz‘s Admission, a dramatic comedy based on the novel by Jean Hanff Korelitz. He would replace Owen Wilson, who was weighing the role earlier this month but has since moved on. More details after the jump.
