Nisha Ganatra will direct the new movie, bringing her experience with the Disney crew from Hulu’s Welcome to Chippendales. She's also known for directing female-led films like The High Note starring Dakota Johnson and Tracee Ellis Ross, and Late Night featuring Mindy Kaling and Emma Thompson.

What is the plot of Freaky Friday 2?

A casting call from Ganatra revealed some plot details, indicating that Anna's character, played by Lindsay, now has a witty 14-year-old daughter named Harper. Harper, a tomboy with a sharp sense of humour, is at the centre of the story.

The description says, "Harper is in a bit of a mood these days because her longtime single mum is set to marry British restaurateur Eric Davies. If that wasn't bad enough Eric comes with his 14-year-old daughter, sharp-tongued, Lily. Harper and Lily do not see eye to eye. Harper would like to see things go her way and use her intelligence to stop this marriage from ever happening."
