Lindsay Lohan is ready for “Freaky Friday” to go on and on and on and on.

After first teasing a sequel to the 2003 movie was in the works last year, the “Mean Girls” star confirmed that the movie is, in fact, happening with her and Jamie Lee Curtis both set to return.

“As I went around the world with Halloween Ends, people wanted to know if there was going to be another ‘Freaky Friday,'” Curtis told The New York Times last May. “Something really touched a chord.
