Freaky Friday 2 Has a Director, Is Really Happening

It has been 21 years since Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan starred in the hugely popular Freaky Friday. The film was Disney’s third adaptation of Mary Rodgers’s 1972 children’s book—and they’re definitely not done with it yet. Curtis and Lohan are “in negotiations” to reunite for Freaky Friday 2, which now has a director and is expected to begin filming this summer.

The Hollywood Reporter says “in negotiations,” but Curtis’s Instagram seems pretty certain; she posted a positively adorable picture of herself and Lohan with the caption “DUH! FFDEUX!”

Director Nisha Ganatra seems like an excellent choice; she directed a very different (but generally quite charming) pair of women, Emma Thompson and Mindy Kaling, in the comedy Late Night, and has directed TV episodes ranging from Mr. Robot to Dear White People to Dollface.

It’s not entirely clear who’s writing the film: THR says both that there’s “an early draft from Elyse Hollander” and that there’s a “new script, by Jordan Weiss.” According to Entertainment Weekly, there may be a new teen in the mix—or two. Lohan’s character reportedly has a 14-year-old daughter, Harper, who doesn’t care for her mom’s new love interest. Said love interest also has a teenage daughter, Lily. The girls don’t get along, and when they swap bodies with Curtis and Lohan, things get doubly complicated.

No release date has been announced, but you can expect to get Freaky again in a year or two. icon-paragraph-end
