Self-proclaimed 20-something-year-old teenage girls are getting a run for their money — and age — with Freaky Friday 2. According to Entertainment Weekly, the plot for the forthcoming sequel has plans for Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan to swap bodies with two 14-year-old girls, Harper and Lily.

In the film, helmed by director Nisha Ganatra, Harper is the daughter of Lohan’s Anna Coleman, while Lily is the daughter of Eric Davis, the British restaurateur she’s planning on marrying. The two teenagers, particular Harper who has been described as “a tomboy with a sharp sense of humor,” aren’t entirely on the same page about their families morphing into one.

This lays the foundation for the film’s larger plot: the morphing of Anna with Harper and Lily with Tess (Curtis). Entertainment Weekly reports that the audition script might not be accurately representative of the final film script, but shared additional details from eight pages it reviewed. Casting is still underway, with one page noting that Harper’s delivery “should be grounded, emotional, and as natural as possible.”

Lohan first confirmed the Freaky Friday sequel on-record in March, telling Andy Cohen: “I don’t want to say too much … We’re both excited! I’m gonna speak for Jamie.” The film will reportedly take place 20 years after the events of the original adaptation, which was released in 2003.

“Because everybody struggles with that conundrum of adulthood and youth. We all judge both sides really harshly. It’s that old adage of, ‘Walk a mile in my shoes,’” Curtis told Rolling Stone in 2022. “Freaky Friday is one of those great examples of, you’re challenging somebody because they make you angry because of their limitations. And then you walk in their shoes and recognize that, in fact, all of those restrictions are there for a reason.”
