Actresses Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween) and Lindsay Lohan (Mean Girls) are famous for many good movies, but one that’s still remembered by fans is the 2003 remake of Freaky Friday. In the movie, they play a mother and teen-aged daughter who can’t understand one another and end up swapping bodies for a day to learn to love each other’s lives.
It’s a delightful movie, and now that Lohan is back in Hollywood and coming out with a Christmas movie on Netflix, Curtis recently came out and said she’d love to return for a sequel, and she’s already said it to Disney. Now the word is that Curtis has spoken with Lohan about the union, and both actresses are interested!
Curtis attending the Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery premiere this week, and Variety asked about the status of Freaky Friday 2. Curtis responded:
“There is no scheduled date, but we’re talking. People are talking. The right people are talking.”
Curtis said she and Lohan discussed their possible big-screen reunion last Sunday.
“I’m 64 in a week and Lindsay is 36…[A sequel] lends itself so beautifully. We’re both committed to it, and it’s not ours to make. It’s Disney’s to make and I think they’re interested and we’re talking.”
Considering how Curtis brought back the Halloween franchise, the outlet asked her if they are already thinking of multiple installments of Freaky Friday movies.
“Let’s just try to get another one made. We’re a ways away.”
