Could you, like, chill for a sec? Jamie Lee Curtis all but confirmed that a Freaky Friday sequel will happen and our former child self is seriously losing it over here.
Get Ready, ‘Freaky Friday’ Fans—Jamie Lee Curtis Says a Sequel Is ‘Going to Happen’
During an interview at the 2023 Producers Guild Awards, Curtis was asked about the potential of a Freaky Friday 2, to which the 64-year-old star responded, “It’s going to happen.”
She continued, “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's been exactly two decades since Freaky Friday (2003) starring Curtis and Lindsay Lohan, 36, was released, and it seems both are very on board for a follow-up.
Back in November 2022, Lohan made a special appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote her new movie Falling for Christmas.
During the interview, Fallon asked her if there had ever been talks of a possible Freaky Friday 2. And wouldn’t you know? Lohan admitted that she has already discussed the idea with Curtis.
“We did speak about it, yeah,” Lohan said. “Let’s just take the fact that I was on set filming at the time, and Jamie Lee Curtis writes, and you just get excited and distracted immediately, so I had to bring myself down to Earth and be like, ‘I’m on set, I have to focus.’ Then she said Freaky Friday 2, and I got more excited.”
Fallon asked whether or not they would be open to appearing in a sequel and Lohan simply responded, “We’d both be into it.”
Based on Mary Rodgers’s 1972 novel, Freaky Friday follows a mother named Tess (Curtis) and her teenage daughter (Lohan) after they switch bodies and live each other's lives.
First, Lohan's big return on Netflix and now this? Looks like Lindsay really is back!
