Calls for a (proper) Mean Girls sequel just got louder, with star Rachel McAdams now saying she'd be keen to reprise the role of high school queen bee Regina George.

McAdams was asked whether she'd be up for going back to the part in the Heroes of Health: COVID-19 livestream in the US over the weekend.

“It would be fun to play Regina George later in her life and see where life took her!” she replied.

It follows word last week from Lindsay Lohan, who played misfit high schooler Cady Heron in Tina Fey's classic teen comedy, who said she'd be very much on board.

She told David Spade on his Lights Out show last week: “I think I was hanging on to [Mean Girls] for a really long time. I wanted to come back with a Mean Girls 2. To work with Tina [Fey], and the whole crew again, and [director] Mark Waters.

“That was really what I wanted. I was excited to do that. But that’s all in their hands, really. So that would definitely be an exciting thing.

The movie, penned by 30 Rock creator Fey, and helmed by Mark Waters, was released in 2004, with McAdams as the inimitable George, the rich teen who ruled the roost at North Shore High.

As well as Lohan, McAdams and Fey, it also boasted Amanda Seyfried in her feature debut, as well as Lizzie Caplan and Amy Poehler.

Critics hailed the movie, which has since – despite a relatively modest $130 million box office haul – achieved cult status.

A direct-to-video sequel did emerge in 2011, but with only Tim Meadows from the original cast, reprising the role of principle Ron Duvall.

It emerged in January this year that the Broadway musical version of the movie is heading to the big screen.
