She may be best known for fighting against Michael Myers, but Jamie Lee Curtis is also fondly remembered for her role as Tess in the Disney flick Freaky Friday.
Freaky Friday saw Curtis paired up with a young Lindsay Lohan, as the two played a mother and daughter who switched bodies and had to adapt to the other's life.
And the flick has certainly cemented itself as one of the most iconic movies for those who grew up in the early 2000s.
But now, nearly twenty years since it was first released, it seems like Curtis is deadset on making a sequel to the Disney movie a reality.
In an interview back in November 2022, she said that there were 'good talks' going on regarding a follow up to Mark Waters' 2003 adaptation of the 1972 novel.
Talking about working with Lohan again, she said: "There would be nothing I would love more, honestly, than to be able to work with her again, share our time again, and now be able to share it at this age with both of us 20 years older, or whatever we are."
And while attending the Producers Guild Award on Saturday (25 February), the Everything Everywhere All at Once star told Variety: "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."
Back in October last year, Curtis opened up on The View about her interest in making another Freaky Friday film and revealed she already had an idea for a potential plot.
She said: "I've already written to Disney, my friends at Disney. I'm in their new Haunted Mansion movie.
"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."
In addition to her petitioning Disney themselves, Curtis has seemingly taken to Instagram in her campaign to push for a reunion with Lohan.
Earlier this month, the Halloween star posted a throwback picture of herself with Lohan.
In the caption, Curtis wrote: "It's Friday. I'm just sayin! Freaky fingers crossed!", whilst tagging Lohan and Disney.
The movie grossed $160 million when it was released in 2003, and earned Curtis a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress.
It was Disney's third adaptation of the book, after a movie in 1976 and a TV movie in 1995.
