Jamie Lee Curtis wants to do a “Freaky Friday” sequel with Lindsay Lohan. The 2003 version of the film where Curtis and Lohan play a mother and daughter who switch bodies with the help of some ancient magic. “Freaky Friday” had a previous film in 1976, starring Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster. Both are adaptations of the 1972 Mary Rodgers novel of the same name.
During a stop in Mexico City on the press tour for “Halloween Ends,” a fan asked Curtis if she was open to exploring the film’s story further. She responded “Absolutely! Or as the kids would say ‘duhhhhh.’” Curtis went on to explain that she had remained close with her fictional daughter.
“Lindsay Lohan and I are friends…. Lindsay Lohan and I text. She texted me the other day, she’s in Ireland making [her new Netflix movie Irish Wish],” she said with a jovial tone. Though she does admit to testing Lohan’s identity when they text “to make sure it’s not a phishing scam.”
Her challenge question to Lohan is “What was the song that you and I were trying to learn the rap [that’s] in the middle of the song while we were sitting in the car doing the scene while we were eating French fries?'” she reminisces about their time on the set. “The answer is the Justin Timberlake song “Like I Love You” …. she and I were playing the tape, then we’d go back and rewind, the two of us were writing the lyrics to that whole rap in the car in Freaky Friday.” Finishing her answer with a simple “Anyway, Freaky Friday remake? Absolutely.”
But today she doubled down on those claims on Instagram.
Lohan has yet to publicly respond but stay tuned to Nerdbot for more news as it becomes available. Check out a fan video of the interview blow, but heads up the audio is kind of low:
