Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis Set to Return in "Freaky Friday" Sequel

Disney is reportedly working on a sequel to the beloved 2003 hit "Freaky Friday," with Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis in talks to reprise their roles as Anna and Tess Coleman, the mother-daughter duo whose bodies are swapped in a freaky twist of fate. Elyse Hollander, a Black List-featured writer, has been tasked with penning the script, which is based on Mary Rodgers' 1972 novel.

The 2003 version of the story, directed by Mark Waters, was a commercial success, grossing over $160 million at the box office. In a New York Times interview celebrating the 20th anniversary of the original film, Lohan and Curtis revealed that a sequel is in the works, and Curtis was instrumental in initiating the project. She said that while doing press for "Halloween Ends," fans kept asking if there would be another "Freaky Friday" movie. Curtis contacted Disney upon her return, stating, "It feels like there's a movie to be made."

The question remains whether Lohan will sign on for the project, given her infrequent acting work in recent years. However, the actress has expressed interest in the sequel, assuring fans that she and Curtis are "open" to it and will only make something that people will "absolutely adore." With the two stars showing enthusiasm for the project, fans can hope for more of the same body-swapping hilarity that made the original such a hit.
