Freaky Friday set for TV reboot

Disney is working on a new version of crossover comedy Freaky Friday – this time for TV.

The new version is thought to be based on a musical adaptation of Mary Rodgers’ novel which debuted last year.

The novel has already been adapted for film three times: in 1976, starring Barbara Harris and Jodi Foster, as a 1995 TV movie with Shelley Long and Gaby Hoffman, and again in 2003 with Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan.

According to a casting notice, Disney is adapting the stage production for television, with the creative team made of people who worked on the stage version.

Filming is expected to begin this Autumn.
