Now that Lindsay Lohan has made her comeback, so have fans' pleas for a Freaky Friday sequel—and, it turns out, the actress is in!

During a talk on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon yesterday, Lohan revealed that she and former co-star Jamie Lee Curtis actually spoke of the possibility of returning for a second film, and they both want to do it.

"We did speak about it, yeah," the actress said. "Let's just take the fact that I was on set filming at the time, and Jamie Lee Curtis writes, and you just get excited and distracted immediately, so I had to bring myself down to Earth and be like, 'I'm on set, I have to focus.' Then she said 'Freaky Friday 2' and I got more excited."

The 2003 flick saw Lohan and Curtis as a mother-daughter duo who struggled to see eye to eye until one day they ate a magical fortune cookie, enchanted by a wise old lady, that made them switch places.

"We'd both be into it," Lohan confirmed of a Freaky Friday 2.

Though it's unclear if the film is actually happening, Curtis told The View last month that she did write to Disney to propose the idea.

"Let me be the grandma! Let me be the old grandma who switches places," Curtis said of her idea for the second movie. "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… 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. I wanna be a helicopter parent in today's world, as an old lady."

Lohan is currently promoting her new Netflix Christmas movie, Falling for Christmas, which premiered on Netflix just yesterday and marks her return to Hollywood following a years-long hiatus.

During her interview with Fallon, the show host asked if, now that she's back, she'd also be willing to make a Mean Girls sequel. "I think that's in Tina Fey's hands," Lohan replied, speaking of the comedian and actress who wrote the cult classic film.
