As “Legally Blonde” rocks Broadway, rumors are circulating about yet another female-friendly flick — the surprise hit “Mean Girls — making a possible stage appearance.

Theater patrons who count themselves fans of “Mean Girls” will have a bit longer to wait for tickets. “We have not written it,” film screenwriter Tina Fey revealed, while mentioning at the same time that her husband, composer Jeff Richmond has written songs for the rumored project. “We’ve had the opportunity to meet with producers on it but we never have. It actually belongs to Paramount so we don’t really own it, but whatever happens we’d like to be involved.”

For her part, Fey is confident that a “Mean Girls” musical would find an audience. “I thought the movie in some ways mostly appealed to young girls and gay men, and I feel like that could be a recipe for success on Broadway,” she joked.
