New Line Cinema has just secured the rights to "Queen Bee Moms & Kingpin Dads," an advice book by Rosalind Wiseman, to be redubbed "Mean Moms" and helmed by frequent "30 Rock" director Beth McCarthy-Miller, reports Deadline.

The Deadline story adds that the "edgy comedy," about a happily married mother of two who becomes caught up in the upper-class suburban world of competitive parenting, will likely feature an "all-star cast."

While there's no explicit connection to "Mean Girls," the movie's title is suspiciously similar -- and the 2004 Lindsay Lohan vehicle was based on material by the same author: Wiseman also wrote "Queen Bees & Wannabes," which was adapted by McCarthy-Miller's "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock" collaborator Tina Fey into "Mean Girls." (McCarthy even directed a series of promos for "Mean Girls.")

The screenplay is currently being rewritten by Sean Anders and John Morris, who also penned the recently resurrected Jim Carrey/Jeff Daniels sequel "Dumb and Dumber To."
