The latest set of mean girls aren't girls at all, they're moms. Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, and Lacey Chabert had their turn as mean girls, but now it's time for "Mean Moms."

New Line Cinema has tapped Beth McCarthy-Miller ("Saturday Night Live") to adapt "Queen Bee Moms And King Pin Dads: Dealing With The Parents, Teachers, Coaches, and Counselors Who Can Make — or Break — Your Child’s Future" -- a book by Rosalind Wiseman, whose "Queen Bees and Wannabes" was the inspiration for the "Mean Girls" movie, Deadline reports.

The film adaptation of Wiseman's 2006 book focuses on a mother who encounters some grown-up mean girls in the form of suburban moms. "Mean Moms" will be produced by Jill Messick with Offspring Entertainment, according to Deadline.

While McCarthy-Miller served as a director for "SNL," she had a chance to work with "Mean Girls" stars Tina Fey and Tim Meadows. No word as to whether "Mean Moms" will serve as a mini-reunion for the trio.

Released in 2004, "Mean Girls" was a major hit. The comedy gained enough of a following that rumors have been swirling for months about the possibility of a "Mean Girls" musical.
