Katie Couric, who will host the reunion on her Instagram page, and Lohan wrote the same announcement on their pages on Sunday as well.
Lohan, who played both roles of twins Annie and Hallie, appears in the teaser alongside Quaid, who played Nick Parker, Annie and Hallie’s dad. Elaine Hendrix, who was Nick’s fiance Meredith Blake, joined in the teaser and said, “There’s a whole generation who thinks Meredith is, like, hashtag goals.”
Meyers’ directorial debut was a remake of the 1961 film of the same name starring Hayley Mills. Natasha Richardson, who played Elizabeth James, tragically died in March 2009 after a skiing accident.
The film follows Annie and Hallie, twins separated at birth after their parents’ divorce. They meet coincidentally at a summer camp, discover their connection and plot to switch places with each other when they go back home.
Tune in to Couric’s Instagram to see the much-anticipated reunion.
