There have been whispers of a Mean Girls musical before – but now we have real hope that it's actually happening. In fact, it's currently 60 percent done. Hey, it's progress anyway – and when it's done, it'll be so fetch.

Composer Jeff Richmond (also Tina Fey's husband) told Yahoo TV recently, "I'm going to say it's like 60 percent written, and it's being staffed creatively." Grool.

Tina, who played Ms. Norbury in Mean Girls and wrote the screenplay, is collaborating with her husband and lyricist Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde: The Musical). Working on Tina's Netflix series, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has delayed the musical a bit, but it's still on the radar, as Jeff explained: "We are looking to do some actual solid readings coming around this summer. The Kimmy Schmidt thing took a lot more time than we all thought, so it slowed some Mean Girls stuff down."

We can't wait to see what they dream up for musical numbers.
