Is Rachel McAdams trying to make a "Mean Girls" sequel happen?

The Canadian actress appeared on the "Heroes of Health: COVID-19" live stream in the U.S. over the weekend and opened up about one of her most iconic roles, playing queen mean girl Regina George in the 2004 comedy "Mean Girls," Yahoo News reports.

"It would be fun to play Regina George later in her life and see where life took her!" she said.

She's not the only "Mean Girl" star who is calling for a sequel (not counting the 2011 direct-to-video movie that did not star the original cast outside Tim Meadows). Lindsay Lohan, who played protagonist Cady, has clamored for years to reunite the cast and crew for a follow-up film. Most recently, Lohan appeared on David Spade's Comedy Central show "Lights Out" and shared her thoughts about a new movie.

"I think I was hanging on to ['Mean Girls'] for a really long time. I wanted to come back with a 'Mean Girls 2,'" she said. "To work with Tina [Fey], and the whole crew again, and [director] Mark Waters. That was really what I wanted. I was excited to do that. But that's all in their hands, really. So that would definitely be an exciting thing.

"Mean Girls" also stars Tina Fey (who wrote the movie), along with Amanda Seyfried, Lizzie Caplan, Lacey Chabert, Jonathan Bennett, Amy Poehler and Daniel Franzese.

The movie was turned into a Broadway musical and it was recently reported that the musical would be turned back into a movie.
