Jennifer Aniston to Deal with 'Mean Moms' from Author of 'Mean Girls'
Take some of the Mean Girls we all knew in high school and have them all grown up and we get Mean Moms. No, this isn't exactly a spin-off of the fantastic 2004 comedy starring Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams, but the project does have source material hailing from author Rosalind Wiseman, who wrote Queen Bees and Wannabes, the book the film written by Tina Fey was based on. THR reports Mean Moms will be based on Queen Bee Moms and King Pin Dads, and will tell the story of a mother forced to deal with some adult versions of The Plastics in her suburban neighborhood, and Jennifer Aniston will be the star.
Aniston has been on a role when it comes to comedies lately. Horrible Bosses showed that the actress is not only still sexy, but pretty damn funny, and she stretched her comedy muscles to even greater effect alongside Jason Sudeikis in We're the Millers last year, a surprisingly great flick. Right now Aniston is only in early talks to direct the film, but it sounds like a promising project. Sweetening the deal is Beth McCarthy-Miller, best known for directing some episodes of shows like "Modern Family" and "30 Rock," who is on board to direct the film. If it's just as good as Mean Girls, this should be fun.
