Lindsay Lohan has hinted fans may not have to wait much longer for a new Mean Girls film.

The Hollywood actress, who played 16-year-old Cady Heron in the 2004 teen comedy, revealed she had been in talks with co-star and writer Tina Fey about releasing a sequel.

Speaking to Time Out magazine, the flame-haired star said she liked the idea of picking up the story years later to see how social circle "the plastics" turned out.

"People really love the movie: how do you top that? I was with Tina Fey the other day and I said we should do another Mean Girls," she told the publication.

"Like an older version where they're all housewives and they're all cheating. That would be really funny. I'll harass Tina to write it."

Fey, the star of 30 Rock, wrote the screenplay for the film that centres around a popular group of friends consisting of Rachel McAdams as Regina, Amanda Seyfried as Karen and Lacey Chabert as Gretchen. She also starred as calculus teacher Ms Sharon Norbury.

Mean Girls grossed almost $90m (£55m) worldwide at the box office. A follow-up, Mean Girls 2, was released in 2011 but Lohan did not feature in that film.

Although there is no official confirmation of a sequel in the works, Lohan, 26, has been keeping busy with a number of projects.

The former child star recently made her West End debut starring in the stage production, Speed The Plow. She plays Karen, a secretary to a Hollywood executive who attempts manipulate to her way to the top.

Ahead of her opening night, Lohan admitted she was initially overwhelmed taking on the role.

"It feels really cool," she said. "It feels really good. It does. It's... terrifying at times. Because in the beginning I, like, panicked. I was like: Oh my f**k, I can't say all this s**t."
