Freaky Friday sequel is in the works with Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan expected to return

Things are about to get freaky in Hollywood so batten down the hatches.

Freaky Friday is officially getting a sequel, according to Variety, and fans all over the world have been screaming with excitement.

The 2003 comedy starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan was the third time the story had been done on the big screen.

It follows aspiring teenage musician Anna Coleman (Lohan) and her complicated relationship with her widowed therapist mother, Tess (Curtis).


After a particularly heated argument at a Chinese restaurant, the two magically switch bodies and they have to work out how to change back.

Jamie's character obviously struggles being an old person in a young body and Lohan's role finds it difficult to manage life in the big, wide world when she's still just a teenager.

It was a fantastic movie that is beloved by people everywhere.


And now we've finally been given confirmation that a sequel is officially in the works.

The Hollywood Reporter says Lohan and Curtis are expected to return for the followup.

It's unclear whether the two will swap bodies for the sequel or whether they will guide two other unsuspecting people.

What is known is that this has been in the pipeline for some time.


Virtually any time Curtis or Lohan are doing press tours, they get asked whether they would be down for a Freaky Friday reunion.

Both have been supportive of the idea in the past, however it has to be right.

Lohan told The New York Times: “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.”

She was speaking to the news outlet to celebrate the movie turning 20 years old and she had nothing but high praise for her co-star.


"When you get to work with such great actors, it really affects your performance. You immediately play better off each other," she explained to The New York Times.

She added: "As an 11-year-old, The Parent Trap felt so big to me. I threw myself into everything: accents, green screens, playing two people.

"So I felt comfortable after that. Freaky Friday felt different because I was going through all of the phases of a 16-year-old [but playing a character who was a year younger].

"This was the era of Avril Lavigne and punk, and I wanted to experience it.

"We did white stripes in my hair. I put [the colorist] Tracy Cunningham through hell because I took my nice red hair and just bleached it."

Well, we can't wait to see what the two look like when they rock up for the sequel after all these years.
