News broke in May 2023 that the popular 2003 film, Freaky Friday, starring Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis will be getting a sequel. The actors are reportedly set to reprise their roles as mother and daughter in the body-swap movie more than 20 years later, several outlets confirmed.

In a 2023 interview with The New York Times, Jamie told the publication that while promoting Halloween Ends, she was repeatedly asked about potentially reprising her role in a Freaky Friday sequel.

“Something really touched a chord. When I came back, I called my friends at Disney and said, ‘It feels like there’s a movie to be made,’” the actor said. With Lindsay also "open" to a sequel, it seems Disney decided to strike while the iron was hot — Elyse Hollander is reportedly confirmed to pen the sequel script.
