The man behind Mean Girls is ready to jump back into the icy waters of high-school drama.

Mark Waters, who directed the cool-girl classic that just celebrated its 10-year anniversary in the EW Reunions Issue, has signed on to helm a comedy called #Catfight, EW has confirmed.

And as if its name wasn’t a big enough tell, the plot is filled with Plastics-level drama. According to Deadline, which first reported the news, the story centers on Lucy, an insecure high-schooler with a single mom who earns a scholarship to a private high school for her senior year and ”attempts to reinvent herself by hiding a past she wants to put behind her.” On the same day as her interview for her dream college, she gets an unwelcome visit from her boyfriend’s ”psychotic” ex-girlfriend, who’s fresh out of juvie and ready for a fight.Amelie Gillette wrote the script, while Will Gluck (Easy A) will produce with his Olive Bridge Entertainment banner, along with Brian Gatewood and Alex Tanaka.
