Freaky Friday 2 Officially Announced with Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan

A sequel to Freaky Friday is officially in the works at Disney, with the film’s original stars, Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan, in negotiations to reprise their roles as the body-switching mother and daughter duo.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nisha Ganatra (Hulu’s Welcome to Chippendales) is attached to direct the film. Production is scheduled to get underway in Los Angeles this summer.

Curtis celebrated the news by sharing a photo with Lohan on Instagram.

Lohan previously teased a sequel in an interview with Andy Cohen on SiriusXM earlier this month. “Lindsay, there are rumors that a Freaky Friday sequel with you and Jamie Lee Curtis could be in the works,” Cohen asked. “Is there anything you can tell us about that?”

“It is,” Lohan confirmed. Cohen then asked about a potential timeline for the sequel, but Lohan couldn’t give anything away. “I won’t say that yet, I don’t want to say too much! We’re both excited — I’m going to speak for Jamie,” Lohan told Cohen.


Both Lohan and Curtis have expressed recent interest in reviving the film 20 years later. In a 2023 New York Times anniversary piece on the film with the two stars, Jamie Lee Curtis claimed she “called [her] friends at Disney and said, ‘It feels like there’s a movie to be made.’” Lohan also seemed excited about the possibility of a sequel, telling the New York Times “Jamie and I are both open to that, so we’re leaving it in the hands that be. We would only make something that people would absolutely adore.”

Freaky Friday isn’t the only piece of Lindsay Lohan-starring early 2000s nostalgia getting a reboot — she recently appeared in a cameo for the musical remake of Mean Girls, which came out in January.
