With filming on the upcoming “Freaky Friday” sequel due to begin later this summer in Los Angeles, the cast is slowly starting to come together.

The sequel to the 2003 version of “Freaky Friday” will see Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan return as the mother and daughter who will once again switch places, but unlike the last film, now they are twenty years older, with that twist of Jamie Lee Curtis’s character now moving into the body of a thirty-plus-year-old adult.

It was also recently revealed that Julia Butters is in talks to join the cast of this new Freaky Friday sequel, and Deadline is reporting that Manny Jacinto is in talks to star in the film.

Manny Jacinto is currently starring in the Disney+ Original series, “Star Wars: The Acolyte”, and has also previously starred in “Top Gun: Maverick”, “Nine Perfect Strangers” and “The Good Place”.

The upcoming “Freaky Friday” sequel is going to be directed by Nisha Ganatra, who has previously worked on “Welcome To Chippendales” and “Future Man”. This new film will be produced by Andrew Gunn and Kristin Burr, with Jordan Weiss writing the script.

No other details on the upcoming “Freaky Friday” sequel have been revealed, such as its name, plot or if the film is going to be released as a Disney+ Original or if it will be released first in cinemas.

Disney has made many different versions of the “Freaky Friday” story over the years, with the first film being released in 1976, which saw Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster play a mother and daughter who swap places and are forced to live with each other’s lives. You can find the previous “Freaky Friday” films available to stream now on Disney+.
