“I’m looking at you in this moment and saying, ‘Of course it’s going to happen'”

Freaky Friday 2 is reportedly in the works, twenty years after the original film starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan was released.

According to reports, Disney has plans to set the film thirty years into the future from the original storyline.

Freaky Friday followed Tess and her daughter Anna- played by Curtis and Lohan – whose complicated relationship is put to the test when they wake up one Friday after ‘an earthquake’ at a restaurant and find they have swapped bodies.

The film was based on Mary Rodgers’ 1972 novel of the same name. It grossed €154.4 million at the box office.

It remains a cult favourite to date and fans will rejoice at the idea of a sequel to the noughties staple teen flick.

Teasing viewers on the potential for the sequel, Jamie Lee told reporters at the Producers Guild Awards: “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 seems she was right because according to the Hollywood Reporter the script is already in the works and confirmed by Disney. It’s being written by Elyse Hollander.

Fans also seem to believe that Jamie Lee has officially confirmed the news on Instagram after she posted a picture with Lindsay.

The pair looked like they were about to sit down in a meeting to discuss the possibility of a new film.


Some believe hints have been dropped since the beginning of 2023. In February, Curtis wrote: “It’s Friday. I’m just sayin! Freaky fingers crossed!”

She tagged Lindsay, as well as Disney in that post. Lohan responded with fingers crossed and heart eyed emojis.

A date for filming or release has yet to be confirmed but it is understood that filming will get underway soon.
