Mean Girls (2004)
Los Angeles - Another book from the author that inspired Mean Girls, another book of Rosalind Wiseman that will be made into a movie called Mean Moms.

It will be based on her advice book Queen Bee Moms and King Pin Dads. It won't be a sequel, but will follow the same vein of its predecessor - a mother moves with her family from a small town to high-class suburbia, where mothers are more competitive than their children.

Deadline reports that Beth McCarthy-Miller of SNL will be directing the movie and the producers hope to get A-list actresses to star as the bitchy moms instead of propelling new talent like with Amanda Seyfried and Rachel McAdams in Mean Girls.

McCarty-Miller has only done TV shows like SNL and 30 Rock, so Mean Moms will be her feature debut.

Mean Girls, which also starred Lindsay Lohan, became a cult hit in 2004 about a naive teenager that moes from Africa back to America and has to deal with a new jungle - high school.

She becomes entangled in a revenge plot against The Plastics, the most popular girls in school. The screenplay was written by another SNL star, Tina Fey, who also starred as one of the teachers.
