Mean Girls writer, Tina Fey, said she'd be open to casting Billie Eilish and Zendaya in the upcoming movie adaptation of the Mean Girls musical.

Something good has come from 2020 - Tina Fey announced a film adaptation of the Mean Girls musical on January 23.

After the 30 Rock star asked her fans and followers who they'd like to see cast in the film, we took it upon ourselves to ask her, herself.

Originally, Tina suggested that she may not know the actors who she could cast, as she'd like to make some stars, however, she was quick to say "If Billie Eilish wants to play Janis, and Zendaya wants to play Cady, let's do that!"

Previously, the likes of Sabrina Carpenter and Cameron Dallas appeared in the Mean Girls musical, playing Cady Heron and Aaron Samuels respectively.

"I'm very excited to bring Mean Girls back to the big screen," said Tina Fey in a statement.

"It's been incredibly gratifying to see how much the movie and the musical have meant to audiences. I've spent sixteen years with these characters now. They are my Marvel Universe and I love them dearly."

Zendaya is currently filming for the untitled Spider-Man sequel, in which she plays MJ, after completing Dune and Malcolm & Marie, where she stars opposite John David Washington.
