UPI News Service, 06/11/2010
Director Melanie Mayron is to begin shooting a sequel to the film "Mean Girls" in the Atlanta area next month, Paramount Famous Productions said.
Casting director Bill Marinella said he is searching for background talent to appear in the film. Open calls are to be held June 26-27 at The Ernst and Young Building in Atlanta.
"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," Paramount Famous Productions said in a synopsis of the film.
"Jo and Abby team up to take on the school's 'mean girls,' the Plastics. 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 sequel were not mentioned.
