Tina Fey eager to get 'Mean Girls: The Musical' underway in 2013

WENN

Tina Fey is hoping to get the green light from movie executives to move forward with plans to turn her hit Lindsay Lohan movie "Mean Girls" into a stage musical this year.

Fey wrote the screenplay for the popular 2004 teen comedy, which was partly based on Rosalind Wiseman's non-fiction work "Queen Bees and Wannabes," and now she is eager to see the film make its transition to the stage.

Fey has been working on a musical adaptation with her composer husband Jeff Richmond for several months and she wants to get the ball rolling on its production sooner rather than later -- as soon as she can convince Paramount film bosses to sign on the dotted line.

"We want to, I'd love to," Fey told E! News. "I'm trying to develop it with my husband, who does all the music for '30 Rock,' and I think Paramount's on board."
