Lindsay Lohan And Jamie Lee Curtis Are Reuniting For A 'Freaky Friday' Sequel—And Fans Are Thrilled
If you were like me, you ran to see Disney's Freaky Friday remake with Lindsay Lohan as a teenager and Jamie Lee Curtis as her mom in theaters when it first came out in 2003.
The 1976 original version starred Jodie Foster and Barbara Harris as the daughter and mother duo who swap bodies. Disney made another remake in 2018 that aired on the Disney Channel.
You can watch the trailer for the 2003 version here:
In a recent interview with The New York Times, Lohan and Curtis talked about the movie.
Curtis shared Halloween Ends sparked her interest in making a sequel to Freaky Friday.
“As I went around the world with ‘Halloween Ends,’ people wanted to know if there was going to be another ‘Freaky Friday. 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 jumped in to say how she is open to the idea.
“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.”
Social media has been very excited about the idea of a Freaky Friday sequel.
