A ‘Freaky Friday’ Sequel is Officially In The Works!
After twenty years, Disney is in talks to reunite Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis for a sequel to 2003’s Freaky Friday.
Based on a script from Elyse Hollander, the film will see Lohan and Curtis reprise their roles as mother-daughter duo Anna and Tess Coleman.
The original Freaky Friday was based on Mary Rodgers’ 1972 novel of the same name. The book was adapted to the screen in a 1976 film which starred Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster. In 1995, the film was remade with Shelley Long and Gaby Hoffman.
The Lohan-Curtis version of Freaky Friday however, was by far the most successful however bringing in over $160 million.
Rumors Begin To Swirl
Rumors of a Freaky Friday sequel began to swirl in February when Curtis posted a photo of her and Lohan on Instragram with the caption, “It’s Friday. I’m just saying! Freaky fingers crossed!”
Later that month, Curtis was adamant that a Freaky Friday sequel would happen.
“It’s going to happen,” Curtis elaborated in an interview with Variety at the Producers Guild Awards on Feb. 26. “Without saying there’s anything officially happening, I’m looking at you in this moment and saying, ‘Of course it’s going to happen.’ It’s going to happen.”
“It Feels Like There’s A Movie To Be Made”
Subsequently, in an interview with the New York times to celebrate the film’s 20th anniversary, both Lohan and Curtis revealed that they were hoping for a reunion.
Curtis even explained that she was something of the the driving force behind the film being made.
“As I went around the world with ‘Halloween Ends,’ people wanted to know if there was going to be another ‘Freaky Friday,’” Curtis told the New York Times. “Something really touched a chord. When I came back, I called my friends at Disney and said, ‘It feels like there’s a movie to be made.’”
Lohan added, “Jamie and I are both open to that, so we’re leaving it in the hands that be. We would only make something that people would absolutely adore.”
