Additionally, Paramount's president of production Elizabeth Raposo commented: "We’re thrilled to be bringing this iconic property back to the big screen in musical form with our incredible filmmaking team."

The musical is set to open on London's West End next year following its Tony-nominated production running on Broadway from its premiere in 2017.

The original Mean Girls film starred Lindsay Lohan as Cady Haron, a previously home-schooled student who joins a high school for the first time and goes undercover with the ruthless popular girls known as The Plastics ( Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, and Lacey Chabert).

However, Cady soon finds that pretending to be one of the group actually starts to transform her into one of the mean girls herself.

It remains to be seen who will be cast in the film adaptation of the musical.

A cast reunion anyone?

Naturally, the devoted following of Mean Girls have taken to social media to share their thoughts.
