EW’s “Mean Girls” Reunion Issue

Entertainment Weekly featured the “Mean Girls” cast in their annual reunion issue which will hit newsstands this friday. Rachel is featured in the cast photoshoot and interview alongside Tina Fey, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert, and Lindsay Lohan. We have added the photoshoot outtakes in our gallery and the interview in our press archive. We will add the magazine scans as soon as possible.

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.

“Mean Girls” 10 Year Anniversary

The fan favorite movie “Mean Girls” is celebrating it’s 10 year anniversary today. The movie was released in theaters exactly 10 years ago on April 30, 2004 in the US. The movie turned into a phenomena and pop-culture favorite. We updated our (new) gallery with lots of “Mean Girls” images to celebrate the anniversary and we have more goodies coming up later on so stay tuned. The New York Times published an article on the anniversary this past weekend and it also features a few new quotes of Rachel. The article is added in our press archive and some excerpts can be found below.

On Regina George: “At the heart of Regina George was a really angry kid who had no boundaries or guidance. Mark told me to listen to Courtney Love really loud, and to watch Alec Baldwin in “Glengarry Glen Ross.”

On the success: “[The success] was surprising to me because when you’re making something, you kind of have no concept of it. But this was the script that made me call my manager halfway through and say, “I will play any part in this.” Tina hit a nerve about girl politics, but in a nonconfrontational way.”

On a recent fan encounter: “I recently stayed at a bed-and-breakfast in Europe, and the owner’s young granddaughter asked me to write down a few lines from the movie at breakfast. I was like a deer in headlights. I couldn’t remember any. And she proceeded to give me 12 direct quotes.”

There have been rumors about a possible cast reunion panel earlier this year, but so far nothing has been confirmed. New Beverly Cinema is hosting an anniversary screening today and tomorrow. Director Mark Waters, casting director Marci Liroff, composer Rolfe Kent, and cinematographer Daryn Okada are expected to attend tomorrow’s screening.

“Mean Girls” Reunion News Round-Up

You may have noticed there have been rumors about a possible “Mean Girls” reunion. The movie will celebrate it’s 10 year anniversary in a few weeks on April 30, 2014 (On a Wednesday!) and there has been talk about a possible reunion. Here are some facts:

• Earlier this month Lindsay revealed, while making an appearance on Jimmy Fallon, that she spoke to Tina Fey and Fey mentioned “maybe doing some sort of reunion” and that she was “was talking to Lorne [Michaels] about it”. Michaels is the producer of “Mean Girls“. In February Lindsay Lohan (Cady), Daniel Franzese (Damian) and Rajiv Surendra (Kevin G) already had a mini reunion which they shared on instagram.

• After Lindsay’s Jimmy Fallon appearance TMZ published a follow up story in which they (reportedly) confirmed that the reunion is happening and they also have a list of names who signed on to the reunion:

Sources close to Tina tell us, several prominent cast members are already on board — Amy Poehler (Mrs. George), Jonathan Bennett (dreamy Aaron), Rajiv Surendra (Math Enthusiast / Bad-Ass MC), and Daniel Franzese (Too Gay to Function).

• Tina Fey, who wrote the screenplay and is playing Ms. Norbury, is currently promoting her latest movie and she talked to various media outlets about a possible reunion. She told Yahoo! during a junket interview the following and also added it will be a (reunion) party “at best”:

“I saw Lindsay at the first episode of ‘The Tonight Show,’ and I was just saying to her backstage, ‘Oh, I think someone’s going to call us because people have been calling, people have been trying to organize some kind of televised reunion because it’s the 10th anniversary of the movie,'” Fey told “The Insider With Yahoo,” before quickly adding, “but it’s not like another movie.”

• Fey also talked to Access Hollywood about the possible reunion and mentioned that they might do a panel:

“Yeah, I saw her at the first episode of the ‘Tonight Show.’ We did that bit with Jimmy, and I said to her, ‘Oh, I think someone may call us about doing some kind of reunion because next month is the tenth anniversary of the movie.’ And so really… if everyone’s around we might try to do some kind of like panel discussion,” Tina told Access Hollywood at the junket for her new film, “Muppets Most Wanted.” “But it’s not like — it’s not another movie. At most it would be like a panel discussion with a plate of hot wings.

“No, it’s definitely not a movie,” Tina added. “It’s just the anniversary is coming up, so everybody get your pink shirts. It’s been 10 years. You can tell when you look at me. It’s been 10 years.”

• This is not really reunion related but Vulture published an interesting interview earlier this year with director Mark Waters about the movie. He discusses some fun facts and reveals Rachel was originally up for the part of Cady.

So to sum up: It’s likely there will be a “Mean Girls” reunion. It’s not going to be a sequel movie but it looks like they are organizing a party/panel which will possibly be televised. Rachel is expected to start filming “Passengers” next month in Berlin, Germany so we are not sure if she is able to attend the reunion.

“Mean Girls” HD Movie Captures

We added the high definition screen captures of “Mean Girls” in our gallery. We removed our previous captures from the gallery, because they were unsorted and not in HD. I am going to try and add and replace more (unsorted) movies in our gallery the next few weeks. The movie is still one of my favorite movies and performances of Rachel and really – along with “The Notebook” – her breakthrough role in Hollywood.
