The 'Mean Girls' Musical Is '60 Percent Written,' According To Jeff Richmond

Tina Fey's "Mean Girls" musical is one step closer to becoming a reality. In a recent interview, her husband and "30 Rock"/ "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" composer, Jeff Richmond, gave an update on the project. "We’ve been working for a long time now," he told Yahoo. "I’m going to say it’s like 60 percent written, and it’s being staffed creatively."

Richmond also revealed that they've been working with Nell Benjamin ("Legally Blonde: The Musical") on lyrics. "We are looking to do some actual solid readings coming around this summer," he said. "The 'Kimmy Schmidt' thing took a lot more time than we all thought, so it slowed some 'Mean Girls' stuff down." He also teased one song title, "Old Blonde Song," which will apparently be sung by Regina's mother. (No word if Amy Poehler will reprise her role.)

Fey has been talking about making a "Mean Girls" musical as far back as 2007, when she said that Richmond had worked on some songs inspired by the movie, and in 2013, he told Vulture he was working on a song about "October 3rd." So fetch.
