Jamie Lee Curtis talks Freaky Friday sequel
Everything Everywhere All At Once star Jamie Lee Curtis has teased fans and brought on a whole lot of nostalgia by promising that Freaky Friday 2 is "going to happen."
The original comedy, which followed Curtis and on-screen daughter Lindsay Lohan swapping bodies, was released in 2003. Now, 20 years later, Curtis told Variety that fans should get ready for a follow-up film.
"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’s going to happen," Curtis said.
Curtis has been speaking about this potential project an increasing amount recently. On February 10, Curtis shared a photo of her and Lohan on Instagram writing: "It’s Friday. I’m just sayin! Freaky fingers crossed!"
Lohan, who is undergoing something of a career comeback at the moment, commented on the post with crossed fingers emojis as well as a heart-eyes smiley face and two hands up.
If Freaky Friday 2 was made official, it would mark a return to one of Curtis' most iconic roles. In contrast, last year, Curtis said goodbye to perhaps her single most famous role — Laurie Strode in Halloween.
At the time, Curtis likened her last performance as Laurie — in Halloween Ends — to a break-up.
"That last week in Savannah, Georgia, when I knew every day going to that set was going to be the last time I was going to be Laurie and be with my people, I cried every day," Curtis said.
"If I'm not crying, if we're all not crying a little bit, then what have we done? We haven't done anything. We've made contact. You guys have made contact with Laurie, I've made contact with you, that's a relationship. I'm breaking up, it's painful."
Everything Everywhere All At Once is available to rent or buy now in the UK from Prime Video, iTunes, Microsoft Store and other digital retailers.
