Mean Moms has been in the works since 2013 when New Line Cinema secured the rights to Queen Bee Moms & Kingpin Dads written by Rosaline Wiseman. She’s the same author who wrote Queen Bees and Wannabes which would later become the basis for Tina Fey’s screenplay for Mean Girls.
The past few days, the film has been on the tip of everyone’s tongue thanks to a fake movie poster that went viral on social media. I’m sure you caught a peek at it if you were at all online the past 48 hours.
The faux artwork featured Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock and Cameron Diaz with the tagline, “Too Sassy For You.” As it turns out, only one of the stars is actually attached to the project, with the other two only speculation. The studio confirmed that only the former Friends star has signed on.
Even though, both Mean Girls and Mean Moms are based on works by Wiseman, Mean Moms isn’t a sequel to the hit Lindsay Lohan film. Instead, the film revolves around a happily married mother of two who becomes caught up in the upper-class suburban world of competitive parenting.
The film was originally slated for a May 2015 release when New Line acquired the rights. The studio is still actively looking for a director, and has not announced a new release date for the film.
Hopefully, this project hasn’t stalled and the studio wrangles a director and other high-profile actresses to jump on board soon. Truth be told, I wouldn’t mind Bullock and Diaz joining. How about you? Sound off below.
