Lindsay Lohan Says ‘Freaky Friday’ Sequel With Jamie Lee Curtis Is Happening: “We Are Both Excited”

Rumors of a Freaky Friday sequel starring Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis have been circulating for years and it seems like a movie is finally happening.

While being interviewed on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM show, Lohan confirmed that a follow-up to the 2003 film was in the works.

“I won’t say that yet. I don’t want to say too much,” Lohan told the host after he asked if there was a timeline for production to start on the film.

She added, “We are both excited. I’m gonna speak for Jamie.”

Lohan and Curtis have been open to starring in a sequel. Back in October 2022, Curtis was asked on The View if she would reprise her role opposite Lohan and said she was “creatively wide open” to do so.

Curtis even had an idea as to what the Freaky Friday sequel could look like, saying, “Let me be the grandma, let me be the old grandma who switches places, so then Lindsay gets to be the sexy grandma who’s still happy with Mark Harmon in all the ways you would be happy with Mark Harmon.”

“I would like to see Lindsay be the hot grandma, and I would like to see me try to deal with toddlers today. I want to be a helicopter parent in today’s world,” Curtis added.

Freaky Friday is based on a 1972 novel by Mary Rodgers about a mother and a daughter whose bodies are switched following a magical Chinese fortune cookie. Curtis and Lohan were the mother-daughter duo, with Harmon playing Curtis’ fiancé in the film.

The 2003 film that starred Lohan and Curtis was the third film adaptation of the novel, following a 1976 film that starred Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster and a 1995 television movie with Shelly Long and Gaby Hoffmann. Disney Channel most recently adapted Freaky Friday into a musical movie in 2018 starring Cozi Zuehlsdorff and Heidi Blickenstaff.
