The man behind Mean Girls is ready to jump back into the icy waters of high-school drama.

Mark Waters, who directed the cool-girl classic that just celebrated its 10-year anniversary in the EW Reunions Issue, has signed on to helm a comedy called #Catfight, EW has confirmed.

And as if its name wasn’t a big enough tell, the plot is filled with Plastics-level drama. According to Deadline, which first reported the news, the story centers on Lucy, an insecure high-schooler with a single mom who earns a scholarship to a private high school for her senior year and ”attempts to reinvent herself by hiding a past she wants to put behind her.” On the same day as her interview for her dream college, she gets an unwelcome visit from her boyfriend’s ”psychotic” ex-girlfriend, who’s fresh out of juvie and ready for a fight.Amelie Gillette wrote the script, while Will Gluck (Easy A) will produce with his Olive Bridge Entertainment banner, along with Brian Gatewood and Alex Tanaka.

'Mean Girls' reunion: Could there be a sequel -- and which stars would be up for it?

It’s been a decade since Mean Girls was released, but affection for the film only seems to get stronger with each passing year. Tina Fey has already announced that a stage musical is in development—but could the Plastics ever team up for another big-screen outing? (Paramount did release a straight-to-DVD sequel in 2011.)

For our Reunions issue, on stands now, EW asked each actress—as well as Fey—whether they’d want to revisit the Girls. READ FULL STORY

EW's 'Mean Girls' reunion: The cast looks back on the 2004 hit

One sure sign of a film’s legacy: Does it inspire its own holiday?

If you happened to be anywhere near the Internet on Oct. 3, you probably noticed an outpouring of nostalgia for 2004’s Mean Girls. The reason? A throwaway line uttered by Lindsay Lohan’s Cady: “It’s October 3rd.”

That may seem a pretty slim thread to hang an entire day on, but it’s indicative of the fervent fan base for this new-classic teen comedy. Written by Tina Fey and directed by Mark Waters (Vampire Academy), Mean Girls stars Lohan as a high school student at a new school who infiltrates the Plastics, a group of nasty popular girls led by queen bee Regina (Rachel McAdams) and her underlings: insecure Gretchen (Lacey Chabert) and dumb-as-a-stump Karen (Amanda Seyfried). The film became a surprise sleeper hit, earning $129 million worldwide and gaining an even bigger following on DVD. In the decade since, Mean Girls has joined Clueless and Sixteen Candles in the teen-comedy canon.

For its 10th anniversary, EW invited the film’s female leads to our own little pep rally, where they talked about their memories, behind-the-scenes magic, and what they think their characters would be doing now. READ FULL STORY

It’s the most happy of pop culture coincidences: The 10-year anniversary of the theatrical release of Mean Girls is today, and April 30 just happens to be a pink-clad Wednesday this year. Mean Girls fans — a huge amount of people in 2004, and somehow an even larger group now — know that Wednesdays are sort-of special when it comes to quoting the Tina Fey-penned cult comedy, second only to Oct. 3.

Mean Girls is such a special movie because it has so many people who were just starting out,” explained Jonathan Bennett, who played sexy-with-his-hair-pushed-back Aaron Samuels. “[On set] we were aware of how big these people were going to be, but no one else was. Rachel McAdams wasn’t Rachel McAdams yet. Lindsay Lohan wasn’t really Lindsay Lohan yet. All the set was a group of kids that were extremely talented and loved their characters, and that’s why [the film] was so good — because they all came together and just did their thing and it was perfect.” READ FULL STORY

'Mean Girls' 10-year anniversary: Damian, Gretchen, Kevin G., and more look back

Mean Girls may now be one of the Internet’s favorite movies — just look at Twitter whenever the film airs on cable — but it was anything but a surefire hit while in production.

“It was my first movie. I was pretty young,” Rajiv Surendra, who portrayed mathlete Kevin G. in the film, tells EW. “[The hair stylist] had worked on really big films that had been shot in Toronto. I remember asking her, ‘How do you think this movie is going to fare?’ and she said, ‘Come on. It’s called Mean Girls and it’s starring Lindsay Lohan. It’s going straight to DVD.'” READ FULL STORY
