A press release advertising for extras revealed that Mean Girls 2 will be directed by the Emmy-Award-winning Melanie Mayron.
A synopsis for the Paramount Famous Productions movie suggested that the update will not include any of the original cast which included Lohan, Amanda Seyfried and Rachel McAdams.
"The story revolves around a new high school student, Jo, who agrees to befriend an outcast, Abby, at the urging of Abby's wealthy father in exchange for paying all of Jo's costs for the college of her dreams. Jo and Abby team up to take on the school's mean girls, the Plastics," the press release said.
"The story becomes a high stakes battle of loyalty that ultimately comes to a head when one of our heroines finds out that her friendship has been bought and paid for."
The stars of the new movie, which will begin shooting in Atlanta next month, have yet to be announced.
