From the comedic mind of Tina Fey comes a new twist on the modern classic, MEAN GIRLS. New student Cady Heron (Angourie Rice) is welcomed into the top of the social food chain by the elite group of popular girls called “The Plastics,” ruled by the conniving queen bee Regina George (Reneé Rapp) and her minions Gretchen (Bebe Wood) and Karen (Avantika). However, when Cady makes the major misstep of falling for Regina’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels (Christopher Briney), she finds herself prey in Regina’s crosshairs. As Cady sets to take down the group’s apex predator with the help of her outcast friends Janis (Auli’i Cravalho) and Damian (Jaquel Spivey), she must learn how to stay true to herself while navigating the most cutthroat jungle of all: high school.
Mean Girls is directed by Arturo Perez Jr. and Samantha Jayne from a screenplay by Tina Fey, adapted from the stage musical “Mean Girls” from Broadway (running from 2018 to 2020).
The 2024 film stars Angourie Rice as Cady, with an ensemble cast of fresh young faces including Auli’i Cravalho, Reneé Rapp, Jaquel Spivey, Avantika, Ashley Park, Bebe Wood, Christopher Briney, Jenna Fischer, Busy Philipps, Tina Fey, Tim Meadows, and Jon Hamm. Fey and Tim Meadows also reprise their roles from the 2004 film.
Mean Girls is set to be theatrically released in the United States on January 12, 2024, by Paramount Pictures.
