Curtis Speaks About “Freaky Friday” Sequel
(FASTNEWS | COLOMBO) – Jamie Lee Curtis has revealed that she has “already written to Disney” in regards to doing a follow-up to 2003’s version of “Freaky Friday”.
Curtis starred opposite Lindsey Lohan in the body-swapping comedy based on the famed 1976 film starring Jodie Foster. The remake managed to gross $160 million at the worldwide box office.
Appearing on The View to promote “Halloween Ends,” co-host Sara Haines asked her if she would pitch Disney about a ‘Freaky’ sequel to which Curtis says:
“I’ve already written to Disney, my friends at Disney. I’m in their new ‘Haunted Mansion’ movie.
Let me be the grandma! Let me be the old grandma who switches places. So then Lindsay gets to be the sexy grandma, who is still happy with Mark Harmon in all the ways you would be happy with Mark Harmon.
And simply, I would like to see Lindsay be the hot grandma, and I would like to see me try to deal with toddlers today. I wanna be a helicopter parent in today’s world, as an old lady.”
Universal Pictures is opening “Halloween Ends” on October 14th in theaters and on Peacock.
