Who's excited for a reunion between Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan?

Jamie hinted in a quick interview with Variety that her cult classic comedy film Freaky Friday, in which she starred with Lindsay, is close to getting a much-awaited sequel.

"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," Jamie told the news outlet.

According to her, there has yet to be a definitive date for the film, but that the "right people are talking."

"I’m 64 in a week and Lindsay is 36…[A sequel] lends itself so beautifully, We’re both committed to it, and it’s not ours to make. It’s Disney’s to make and I think they’re interested and we’re talking," she said in a separate chat with Variety.

The veteran actress, who recently won as Best Female Actor in a Supporting Role for Everything Everywhere All at Once, first teased about the potential sequel when she posted a picture of her and Lindsay on Instagram with the caption, "It’s Friday. I’m just sayin! Freaky fingers crossed!"

Lindsay then commented crossed fingers emojis, a smiley face with heart eyes, and two hands raised together.

Freaky Friday was released by Disney back in 2003 and it focuses on the tumultuous relationship between single mother Tess Coleman and her teenage daughter Anna. After receiving cryptic fortunes at a Chinese restaurant, the two suddenly find themselves switching bodies. Unable to return to their normal selves, they are forced to pretend as one another until they find a way back.
