Lindsay Lohan says she's 'pushing' for 'Mean Girls 2'
Lindsay Lohan says she's "pushing" hard to make Mean Girls 2 happen.

The 30-year-old actress revealed Thursday in a Facebook Live interview with CNN that she's already "written a treatment" for the potential sequel.

"I have been trying so hard to do a Mean Girls 2," Lohan said. "It is not in my hands. I know that [writer] Tina Fey, [producer] Lorne Michaels, all of Paramount, everyone's very busy. But I will keep forcing it and pushing it on them until we do it."

"I [personally] would love to! I would love to have, like, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jimmy Fallon in the movie. I've already written a treatment for it. So I just need a response," she added. "I know Mark Waters, who was the director, would happily come back."

The original Mean Girls opened in theaters in 2004 and has since developed a cult following. Lohan had previously expressed interest in and shared an idea for a sequel in an interview with Time Out London.

"I was with Tina Fey the other day and I said we should do another Mean Girls, 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," she said in 2014.

Lohan, who played Cady Heron in Mean Girls, reunited with Jonathan Bennett, who portrayed Aaron Samuels, in October. The actress will next star in The Shadow Within with Charlotte Beckett.


Report: Halle Berry, Olivier Martinez reach custody agreement
Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are one step closer to finalizing their divorce.

The 50-year-old American actress and French actor, also 50, have agreed on a custody arrangement for 3-year-old son Maceo, according to TMZ.

Berry and Martinez will share physical and legal custody of their son. The couple have yet to reach a property settlement, although a source said the pair's prenuptial agreement should help resolve any issues.

Berry and Martinez announced their split in October 2015 after more than two years of marriage. The couple said in a statement at the time that they would remain amicable and focused on their son.

"We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus of what is best for our son," they said. "We wish each other nothing but happiness in life."

TMZ had reported in September that Berry and Martinez's divorce was close to being dismissed due to inactivity. E! News attributed the holdup to "continued discussions about money and Maceo."

Berry is also mom to 8-year-old daughter Nahla with ex-partner Gabriel Aubry. She will next star in the thriller Kidnap and is also slated for Kingsman: The Golden Circle with Taron Egerton and Kings with Daniel Craig.

??? Guess Who ???

Which legendary rap group is suing Amazon, Walmart for copyright infringement?

Run-DMC is suing Amazon, Walmart and several other online retailers for selling unlicensed products containing the legendary hip-hop group's logo, confusing fans and harming their business interests.

Lawyers representing Darryl "DMC" McDaniels filed a $50 million lawsuit Thursday in federal court alleging the retailers are "trading on the goodwill" of the band by selling unlicensed products to fans and implying the group has endorsed them.

Run-DMC are among the artists seen as the godfathers of rap, inspiring generations of future artists and helping the genre break through to the mainstream in the 1980s with massive tracks such as "It's Like That," "Run's House" and "My Adidas," and collaborating with Aerosmith on an updated version of their hit "Walk This Way."

As a result, their logo has become iconic, bringing in more than $100 million since the group started. Their association with Adidas, as a result of wearing the shoes constantly and writing a song about how much they liked them, led to a $1.6 million deal with the company to use the shoe logo with their own on some products.

Calling the number of infringing products "too numerous to properly list," the suit refers to shirts, glasses, hats and other products designed based on the Run-DMC brand.

In addition to Amazon and Walmart, the lawsuit includes smaller retailers such as Jet.com, Vision World, SW Global and Infinity Fashion for selling the products. The lawsuit accuses the retailers of being business partners with Amazon and all benefiting from use of the stolen logo.

"The products sold by the Defendants confuse the public as to the source of the products and suggests that RUN-DMC endorses the products," lawyers write in the suit. "The defendants are trading on the goodwill of plaintiff."
