Canadian actor Manny Jacinto is in negotiations to join the cast of the sequel to Freaky Friday. Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis, who starred in the 2003 movie, are officially returning for the follow-up, according to Variety.

Freaky Friday revolved around a mother-daughter duo, played by Curtis and Lohan, who constantly argue. One day, their souls get exchanged and they find themselves in each other's body leading to hilarious situations.

The details of Jacinto's character have been kept under wraps. Nisha Ganatra will direct the movie from a script by Jordan Weiss. Andrew Gunn and Kristin Burr will produce.
