Lindsay Lohan Reveals If She’s Films Sequels To ‘Freaky Friday’ & ‘Mean Girls’

Lindsay Lohan is talking about if she’s down to make sequels to some of her past film hits like Freaky Friday and Mean Girls.

While promoting her new Netflix movie Falling for Christmas, Lohan discussed being in the potential sequels. The question came after Jamie Lee Curtis expressed interest in making a follow-up movie to Freaky Friday.

Lohan acknowledged that Curtis had reached out to her about the sequel while she was on the set of her holiday movie.

“I was on set filming at the time and Jamie Lee Curtis writes you, you just get excited and distracted immediately,” she recalled. “So I had to bring myself down to Earth and be like, ‘OK, I’m on set, I have to focus.’ And then she said Freaky Friday 2 and I got more excited.”

Lohan then said that she and Curtis “would both be into” making another film based on their Freaky Friday characters.

The sequel to Mean Girls and Lohan said that a follow-up movie would be “in Tina Fey’s hands.”

Previously “I was like, ‘Oh, no, no, you can’t touch “Mean Girls”!’” Lohan said of the 2004 high school comedy’s legacy. “Sorry, you can’t do that.”

“It was my brilliant idea to bring it up in a conversation with the directors and the producers. I was like, ‘Oh, wouldn’t it be fun if we did a blooper reel at the end and we all kind of did the Christmas scene from the talent show in “Mean Girls”?”” Lohan said during the “Live With Kelly and Ryan” talk show. “That was the first idea. Then I was like, ‘Let’s not actually do that,’ and then they said, ‘Oh, what about the song?’”

Lohan added that she “didn’t want to ruin” the legacy of “Mean Girls,” which also starred Rachel McAdams, Lacey Chabert, and Amanda Seyfried as Lohan’s fellow Plastics.

When Curtis made an appearance on The View in October, she revealed she had an idea for a Freaky Friday sequel where Lohan would play a “hot grandma.”

“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,” Curtis said.

Although Curtis said she pitched the idea to people at Disney, there’s no word if executives are considering making a sequel yet.

“I shouldn’t have said it because it went straight to, ‘Oh, let’s recreate the “Mean Girls” talent show scene,’” Lohan added. “I was like, ‘Oh, no, no, you can’t touch “Mean Girls”! Sorry, you can’t do that.”

Lohan’s former “Mean Girls” co-star Jonathan Bennett, who carved out a Christmas niche of his own on the Hallmark Channel, told E! Online that he was “bursting at the seams” to watch “Falling for Christmas.”

“[Lindsay is] one of the best actresses of our generation, and to see her not only do what she does in comedy, but to do it at Christmas, it’s like my three favorite things: Christmas and comedy and Lindsay Lohan,” Bennett said. “I’m going to be rooting and I can’t wait to do a Christmas movie with her at Hallmark hopefully!”

Lohan recalled the pressure to perfect “Jingle Bell Rock” in “Falling for Christmas,” telling Entertainment Tonight she was “nervous because I haven’t recorded in a long time and felt the pressure of doing it in a way that people who had seen ‘Mean Girls’ would like it the same.”

“I mean, with ‘Mean Girls,’ we had the dance behind it and I had all the other girls with me,” Lohan said, where “Falling for Christmas” was “just my voice. So, it was nerve-racking.”

Lohan continued, “I haven’t been on set in such a long time that I was so excited to be there. Like, nothing could bother me. I was just in the happiest spirits and then put Christmas on top of that and especially working with Chord [Overstreet], we had a lot of fun. It was so incredible to see just how excited people were to have me in a movie again.”

The actor has been turning out looks while promoting her new Netflix film, “Falling For Christmas,” and the style streak continued at the New York film premiere on 9 Nov. Lohan wore a sheer Valentino column gown embroidered with white lace flowers and hundreds of gold sequins and beads arranged to mimic stems. With long sleeves, an A-line skirt, and hidden pockets, the sheer dress shimmered from every angle as she posed with husband Bader Shammas on the red carpet for the first time.
