Jamie Lee Curtis wishes to make a ”Freaky Friday” sequel with Lindsay Lohan.

While visiting The View to promote her new movie Halloween Ends, Curtis was asked by co-host Sarah Haines if she would participate in a follow-up to the 2003 film.

Sarah Haines asked Curtis to reveal what she’d want to see in the film, and Curtis announced, “I’ve already written to Disney, my friends at Disney. I’m in their new Haunted Mansion movie.”

She then clamored, “Let me be the grandma! Let me be the old grandma who switches places.”

Curtis then pitched ideas on what her and Lohan’s characters could be doing in the possible sequel.

“Lindsay Lohan and me back in Freaky Friday. She just made a Christmas movie, I believe, and she got married. … It’s all good. Bring it! Let me be the grandma, let me be the old grandma who switches places, so then Lindsay gets to be the sexy grandma who’s still happy with Mark Harmon in all the ways you would be happy with Mark Harmon,” she continued.

“I would like to see Lindsay be the hot grandma, and I would like to see me try to deal with toddlers today. I want to be a helicopter parent in today’s world.”

Freaky Friday was an adaptation of Mary Rodgers’ 1972 novel of the same name, and followed Curtis and Lohan’s mother-daughter pair as they unwittingly switch bodies thanks to a mysterious and magical Chinese fortune cookie. At the time, it grossed over $160 million worldwide, and earned Curtis a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.

The idea of making a Freaky Friday sequel 20 years later comes as a fun suggestion given how Disney+ recently released a sequel to Hocus Pocus almost 30 years later.
