Jamie Lee Curtis’s comments add steam to Freaky Friday rumors

Veteran actress Jamie Lee Curtis confirmed during an interview that Freaky Friday could potentially get a sequel.


Jamie Lee Curtis has revealed that talks are ongoing about a potential sequel to the 2003 hit film Freaky Friday.

Jamie Lee Curtis revealed that there are discussions for a sequel to her 2003 film with Lindsay Lohan.

She made the revelation during a quick red-carpet interview at the premiere of the Netflix film Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.

According to the Knives Out star, the film’s production company is yet to decide on a specific date to begin production, although they were discussing the possibility. In her words, "There is no scheduled date, but we’re talking. People are talking. The right people are talking."

Curtis further stated that she had discussed the potential screen reunion with her Freaky Friday co-star, Lindsay Lohan. Given that she is in her mid-sixties and Lohan is in her mid-thirties, Curtis opined that now is a great time to develop a sequel, although the final decision lies with Disney.

Earlier in October, the actress revealed, during an interview with The View, that she pitched her idea for a Freaky Friday sequel to Disney via a letter. With her recent comments, it seems her pitch appealed to the top brass at the entertainment behemoth.

Curtis and Lohan played a mother-daughter duo who misunderstood each other and thought the other person had life easier.

Curtis was instrumental in bringing back the Halloween franchise. As a result, she was asked about the possibility of making other Freaky Friday installments. She responded to this with, "Let’s just try to get another one made. We’re a ways away."

Lohan recently returned to acting in Netflix's holiday movie, Falling for Christmas, where she stars alongside Glee’s Chord Overstreet. She confirmed to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show that she discussed the possibility of making a second Freaky Friday film with Curtis. In her words, "We did speak about it, yeah. 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." The Mean Girls star added, "We’d both be into it."

In other news, Amy Adams has revealed she's open to reprising her role as Lois Lane in the DCU. Ralph Fiennes, who played Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter franchise, has a similar mindset. He is also open to reprising his role as one of the most iconic villains in movie history.
