"My husband [composer] Jeff Richmond and I, [along with lyricist] Nell Benjamin, have been working on it," Fey reportedly told New York Times culture writer Melena Ryzik during a panel discussion for the Times Talks series on Wednesday.

"So it that still happening?" Ryzik asked, according to the Huffington Post. Fey responded affirmatively, but she cautioned that it was still "years away."

Mean Girls wouldn't be the first comedy film to get the Broadway treatment: A Legally Blonde musical, based on the 2001 rom-com, debuted on Broadway in 2007.

Fey is likely hoping that the legions of Mean Girls fans will shell out money for tickets to see the comedy classic in musical form — but the theatre should prepare for the audience to regularly interrupt the performance by yelling, "You go, Glen Coco."
