This year marks the 20th anniversary of Freaky Friday and its leading ladies are celebrating it in style. Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis are in talks to reprise their roles in the sequel of the beloved body-swap comedy after Disney officially gave it the green light.
The project is still in the early stages of development, but Disney already tapped Elyse Hollander to pen the script. Lohan and Curtis are expected to return as mother-daughter duo Anna and Tess Coleman, who switched their bodies in the first film, but plot details are still being kept under wraps.
The duo recently set down with The New York Times for a 20th-anniversary interview and revealed they’d like to come back for a sequel.
“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,” said Lohan.
Curtis echoed her statement and told The New York Times that the success of Halloween Ends inspired her to revisit another one of her iconic characters, especially after so many people wanted to know if there was going to be another Freaky Friday.
Freaky Friday was the third and the most successful adaptation of Mary Rodgers’s novel of the same name, and it went on to become a 2000s classic after earning $160 million worldwide.
