When it comes to movie sequels, there are those that deserve to be made, and those that are made to cash in on a successful movie. We'll let you decide what kind of sequel Mean Girls 2 is. Only Tim Meadows remains of the cast and creative team of the 2004 original, leaving Mean Girls 2 to create a new trio of shallow high school students to eventually receive their comeuppance. Stepping in for Mean Girls director Mark Waters is Thirtysomething actress Melanie Mayron while stepping for screenwriter Tina Fey are Barbie and The Diamond Castle and Barbie as The Diamond Princess screenwriters Cliff Ruby and Elana Lesser. Should be a seamless transition.
Paramount Pictures has released a trailer and poster for the sequel, which, unsurprisingly, will be going straight to DVD. Just in case anyone might wonder what Mean Girls 2 could possibly be about, there's a synopsis as well.

The story revolves around a new high school student, Jo, who agrees to befriend an outcast, Abby, at the urging of Abby’s wealthy father in exchange for paying all of Jo’s costs for the college of her dreams. Jo and Abby team up to take on the school’s "mean girls," the Plastics. The story becomes a high stakes battle of loyalty that ultimately comes to a head when one of our heroines finds out that her friendship has been bought and paid for.
