Adam Shankman To Over-Parent Production of 'Mean Moms'
Adam Shankman has just been nominated for the "Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves Award for Achievements in the Field of Squeezing Blood From Stones Sequelizations." Shankman is producing an unofficial sequel to Mean Girls, this time dealing with the social order in the world of competitive parenting. Like Mean Girls, Mean Moms (aka C*nts) is also based on an advice book by Rosalind Wiseman. In this case, it's her 2006 book "Queen Bee Moms and King Pin Dads: Dealing with the Parents, Teachers, Coaches, and Counselors Who Can Make -- on Break -- Your Child's Future."
One of the main reasons that Mean Girls is so good is Tina Fey's script. To say that Mean Moms scribes Dara and Chad Creasey have some big shoes to fill is an understatement. But if anyone is up to the job, it's the writing team behind Studio 60 On the Sunset Strip, Pushing Daisies, and Legally Blondes. Which is apparantly a thing that happened after Reese Witherspoon became president or something in Legally Blonde 2: Red, White, and Blonde. (Variety)
