After years of rumors and updates, Freaky Friday 2 is officially a go, with THR reporting that Disney has set a director to helm the long-anticipated sequel.

According to a new report, Nisha Ganatra (who last directed episodes of Hulu’s Welcome to Chippendales miniseries) has been set to direct the upcoming film. Stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan are in talks to reprise their roles as the mother-daughter combo, though nothing is official yet.

Talks of a sequel to Freaky Friday have been rumbling for a few years now, with the latest update coming from Lohan. Earlier this month, the actress hinted that a sequel was in development, but that no real timeline was set on much else.

Freaky Friday was a smash hit when it released in 2003

It has been nearly 20 years since Freaky Friday made its theatrical release in 2003. In addition to receiving positive reviews, the film was also a box office success with a worldwide gross of more than $160 million against a reported budget of $26 million.

Directed by Mark Waters from a screenplay written by Heather Hach and Leslie Down. It centered around the bond between a mother and her rebellious daughter. After arguing again, they suddenly find themselves in an unbelievable situation as they switch bodies.

The 2003 film starred Curtis, Lohan, Chad Michael Murray, Mark Harmon, Stephen Tobolowsky, Rosalind Chao, and more. It is based on Mary Rodgers’ 1972 novel of the same name. This version marked Disney’s third adaptation of the classic story.
