The beloved 2004 comedy "Mean Girls," which featured "SNL" talent like Tina Fey, Tim Meadows, Amy Poehler and Ana Gasteyer, might be coming to the stage as a musical. At this weekend's SAG award ceremony, where she won for best actress in a comedy series, the comedian told E! that "I'm trying to develop it, actually, with my husband, who does all the music for '30 Rock'. And I think Paramount's onboard, yeah."

Fey, who wrote the screenplay for the film, took a jab at  "American Idol" mean girl Mariah Carey , saying that based on her recent spat with Nicki Minaj she "can play Amy Poehler's part in the musical."
