Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis are interested in reuniting for a sequel to Freaky Friday. The two stars played a daughter and mother who switched bodies in the 2003 comedy by director Mark Waters. Freaky Friday is an adaptation of the 1972 novel of the same name by author Mary Rodgers, and was a pretty big hit at the box office. The film only cost $26 million to make but raked in over $160 million worldwide. Although it's almost been 20 years since its release, there is obviously interest in seeing a sequel, and Lindsay Lohan is down for teaming back up with Jamie Lee Curtis.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon had Lindsay Lohan on as a guest to talk about getting married and her new Netflix holiday movie Falling for Christmas, where she got to sing "Jingle Bell Rock." When the topic shifted to Freaky Friday, Fallon stated he saw an interview where Jamie Lee Curtis was asked if she would want to do a Freaky Friday sequel. Lohan revealed she was on set when she got a message from her former co-star and added how they'd both be up for it.
