Jamie Lee Curtis’ character might’ve been offended by being called old in the first “Freaky Friday” but now? She wants to be “the old grandma who switches places” in a “Freaky Friday” sequel. Apparently, she’s already written to Disney about it.

Curtis first got the hopes of fans up last week, when she said she’d “Absolutely” do another “Freaky Friday” with Lindsay Lohan if the opportunity presented itself. But on Monday’s episode of “The View,” Curtis revealed that she’s trying to make that opportunity happen herself. When host Sara Haines pressed the actress on her original answer and gave her the floor “to pitch Disney” if she wanted to, Curtis admitted she already has.

“I’ve already written to Disney, my friends at Disney,” Curtis revealed. “I’m in their new ‘Haunted Mansion’ movie, so I’m back in the — “

Presumably, Curtis was saying she’s back in the Disney family, which makes it easier for her to pitch such things. It’s impossible to know for sure though, as host Sunny Hostin cut her off and worried that “The Haunted Mansion” would also be scary, like her newest film “Halloween Ends.”

After poking a bit of fun at Sunny, Curtis got back on track, and went into what she’d like to see in a sequel. “Let me be the grandma! Let me be the old grandma who switches places,” she said. When host Ana Navarro jumped in to inform Curtis she’d be a “sexy grandma,” Curtis pushed on.

“So then Lindsay gets to be the sexy grandma, who is still happy with Mark Harmon in all the ways you would be happy with Mark Harmon,” she joked, calling out to Harmon’s real-life wife to make it clear she doesn’t mean any disrespect.

“And simply, I would like to see Lindsay be the hot grandma, and I would like to see me try to deal with toddlers today,” Curtis finished. “I wanna be a helicopter parent in today’s world, as an old lady.”

The actress added that, at least creatively speaking, she’s “wide open.” Disney just has to make the call.
