‘Freaky Friday 2’ Rumors Gain Momentum With Jamie Lee Curtis Comments
It looks like Fridays are about to get a little weird (again).
Jamie Lee Curtis has teased that she’s « definitely starting to talk » about forming a sequel to the 2003 movie « Freaky Friday. »
« There’s definitely talk, » the two-time Golden Globe Award winner told TODAY on Monday.
Curtis, who played Tess Coleman in the hit comedy film, recalled the film’s appreciation across generations when discussing the prospects of a successful sequel.
« ‘Freaky Friday’ was so great, it has so much nostalgia, » the 63-year-old said. « Young people love it, people who grew up with it are now moms, showing it to their kids. »
« The music, Lindsay (Lohan) – it’s just a great movie and it kinda makes sense that we’re doing it again, » Curtis added.
The reveal follows Lohan’s claim that the two leads have spoken of a film revival.
« We’d both be in it, » the 36-year-old told Jimmy Fallon last week.
Lohan, who plays Tess Coleman’s daughter Anna on « Freaky Friday, » mentioned she was filming when Curtis contacted her.
« First of all, let’s just take the fact that I was on set at the time, and Jamie Lee Curtis writes to you and you immediately get excited and distracted, » Lohan explained.
« And then she said Freaky Friday 2 and I got more excited! » she added.
The original film followed a mother-daughter relationship shattered after a body-switching experience, with each family member understanding the other’s struggles.
A « Freaky Friday 2 » could have similar characteristics.
Curtis said in October that she could be « the old grandma switching places, so Lindsay becomes the sexy grandma who’s always happy with Mark Harmon in all the ways you’d be happy with Mark Harmon. »
