“Mean Girls” helmer Mark Waters attached to “Minimum Wage”

Mean Girls director Mark Waters is in talks to direct the comedy pic “Minimum Wage”

The credit crunch-inspired flick follows the story of a corrupt corporate executive who is sentenced to live a year on the minimum wage in a town that his company bankrupted. Tegan West and Scott Atkinson penned the script.

Waters most recently helmed “The Spiderwick Chronicles”; his latest film “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past” is expected in Irish cinemas later this year.
