In the 2004 film, directed by Mark Waters and written by Tina Fey —based on the book Queen Bees and Wannabes—, we learn the story of Cady Heron (Lohan), an innocent 16-year-old student who, after being home-schooled her entire life, finally enters a mainstream high school. There she will be invited to be part of the Plastics, an exclusive group of popular girls that includes the mischievous Regina George (Rachel McAdams), the indiscreet Gretchen Wieners (Lacey Chabert) and the naive Karen Smith (Seyfried).
“Ten years ago I used to say, ‘Yeah, yeah, I was Karen in mean girls, for the love of God’. Now I say things like: ‘I was Karen in mean girls!’ I am very proud of that film,” Seyfried said in the recent conversation. “I didn’t know how good it was going to be.”
Neither for her nor for Lohan the idea of a sequel is despicable, according to the words of both. But how feasible is it really?
