Earlier this month, Jamie Lee Curtis expressed her interest in doing a Freaky Friday sequel. The film, was a huge hit when it came out in 2003. And it looks like Curtis' co-star in the film, Lindsay Lohan, is also on board with the idea. Now, we can't help but ask will there be a Freaky Friday 2?
What Was Freaky Friday Plot About?
Freaky Friday was a fantasy-comedy about a mother-daughter tandem who couldn't stand each other until the two switched bodies after eating a fortune cookie. After that, the two got to understand each other's predicaments and see things from their own perspective.
When they were switched back, the relationship between the two became better than ever.
Will There Be A Freaky Friday 2?
With the interest of the two lead actresses to star in a sequel of the iconic film, it looks like the final decision will have to come from Disney.
While doing a press tour for her upcoming film, Halloween Ends, Curtis revealed that she personally pitched the idea to Disney.
"I've already written to Disney, my friends at Disney. I'm in their new Haunted Mansion movie."
As for what Freaky Friday 2 will be about, Curtis shared that she wishes to be the "old grandma who switches places. So then Lindsay gets to be the sexy grandma, who is still happy with Mark Harmon in all the ways you would be happy with Mark Harmon. And I would like to see me try to deal with toddlers today."
When asked about Lohan's reaction to the sequel, Curtis shared:
"Linday Lohan and I are friends… Lindsay Lohan and I text. She texted me the other day, she's in Ireland making Irish Wish. Anyway, Freaky Friday remake? Absolutely."
Shortly before Valentine's Day, Curtis shared a photo of her with Lohan and captioned it:
It's Friday. I'm just sayin! Freaky fingers crossed! @lindsaylohan @disney
She was then asked by Variety magazine if the sequel has been confirmed. Curtis answered:
“It’s going to happen. 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.”
How Many Freaky Fridays Are There?
To date, there have been four Freaky Friday movies in the series. Each one, however, is a standalone movie and is not correlated with the other. There are no sequels or spin-offs in the series.
The series is influenced by Mary Rodgers' children's book of the same name. These are the Freaky Friday movies in order:
- Freaky Friday (1976)
- Freaky Friday (1995)
- Freaky Friday (2003)
- Freaky Friday (2018)
Curtis and Lohan's version was released in 2003.
