Mathletes rejoice! “Mean Girls” writer and actress Tina Fey has announced plans for a potential musical adaptation of the teen film.

The Saturday Night Live alumna told E! a stage version of the 2004 movie is in the works. “I’m trying to develop it, actually, with my husband, who does all the music for ’30 Rock,'” Fey said. “And I think Paramount’s onboard.”

Fey has previously teased the idea of a stage adaption before, saying in an interview with MTV in 2007 that her composer husband, Jeff Richmond, had written some music that was inspired for ‘Mean Girls.’

Fey told Vulture earlier this year that she believes it could happen.

“I’m pretty sure — I’m confident that Paramount will give us the permission to work on it,” Fey said. “I think (my husband’s) secretly been working on it for years.”

The project would reportedly bring characters Cady Heron, Regina George, Janis Ian and Mr. Duvall back into the spotlight, and revive the characters originally played by Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Tim Meadows, Amy Poehler and Ana Gasteyer.
