Earlier this month, Curtis hinted as much Crazy Friday war could be on the horizon when he reunites with his co-star Lindsay Lohan, who played Tessa’s daughter Anna in the first film.
Alongside a smiley selfie of the pair he shared on Instagram, Curtis wrote: “Too late. YOU GROWN UP AND SO GORGEOUS! Well, it’s Friday and the strike is over so hopefully we can trade seats again in the near future! @lindsaylohan @disney.”
Meanwhile, in a joint interview in May with The New York Times in honor of the film’s 20th anniversary, Lohan, 37, confirmed that both she and Curtis are open to the possibility of making a sequel, but are “leaving it up to them.”
“We would only make something that people would absolutely love,” she added.
Months earlier, Curtis also told Diversity sequel, “It will happen. Without saying anything is officially happening, I’m looking at you right now and saying, ‘Of course it’s going to happen.’ It will happen.”

“I want to be a helicopter parent in today’s world, like an old lady,” she joked.
