There could be an opportunity for Curtis to show off her shredding guitar skills again; she recently revealed she is more than ready to reprise her role in "Freaky Friday!"

Last month, Curtis had nothing but praise for the possibility of a "Freaky Friday" sequel in a red-carpet interview with the Producers Guild Awards.

She told reporters. "It's going to happen. Without saying there's anything officially happening, I'm looking at you in this moment and saying, 'Of course it's going to happen.' It's going to happen."

The possibility of a "Freaky Friday" sequel in the works has been bubbling under the surface longer than many might've guessed; according to our recent report on Curtis' red carpet revelation about a "Freaky Friday" sequel, she had previously brought up the subject last year with TODAY.

"The music, Lindsay [Lohan]... it's just a great movie and it makes kind of a little bit of sense that we would do it again," she said.

The magic Curtis and Lohan captured together was authentic; the duo learned how to play their characters' instruments and really rock out in order to make their rock and roll skills believable!

In a poignant moment in the film- consider this a spoiler warning- Anna (in her mother, Tess' body) decides to help her mother out backstage at her band's highly-anticipated House Of Blues gig. While Pink Slip performs their garage-staple song "Take Me Away", Anna helps her mom out by playing the guitar solo.

Curtis' moment in the rock and roll spotlight has become one of the film's most iconic moments over time. Last year, she reflected on how the memorable moment came to fruition on screen.

She had one request after signing on to the project; Curtis revealed at last year's Vulture Festival she had asked for someone to teach her how to play guitar. She even let her husband, Christopher Guest, have a preview of her progress. Guest, after all, has a place in rock and roll history, himself, as a member of Spinal Tap!

What was Curtis' take on her "Freaky Friday" guitar solo? "I slayed," she said.

Curtis Believes An Earlier Start Time For Rock Shows Would Be A Punk Rock Move!

Whether she is thinking about gearing up to rock out on screen once again or not, Curtis has been pondering a change that could be advantageous for sleepy music fans!

Curtis shared her thoughts in a recent interview with TODAY.

The "True Romance" actress has also recently gone viral for expressing her love of an early bedtime; Curtis revealed she had recently turned down an elite Oscars-related dinner invite because it would inevitably interrupt her shuteye time. She soon proved her love for catching some ZZZs at a time when most are thinking about dinner plans or unwinding from work, posting a snapshot of her bedside alarm clock which read 6:58!

After gushing to Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie about prioritizing beddy-bye, Curtis said, "I'm also challenging musicians to do concerts during the day! You see, why are there no matinees? Okay but seriously, I would love, for instance, I love Coldplay. I would love to go see Coldplay! I would love it! The problem is, I'm not gonna go see Coldplay if they start their show at 9:00, and there's an opening act," Curtis enthusiastically continues.

"I wanna hear Coldplay at 1 PM," she proposes. "I think, if we filled a stadium of people who wanna see a matinee of Coldplay, I think we're gonna start a trend," she tells the giggling hosts.

Curtis expanded upon her idea in an interview at the Film Independent Spirit Awards, this time challenging Bruce Springsteen and U2 to consider getting an early start.

"...Bruce Springsteen, do a f***ing matinee," Curtis implored the "Backstreets" rocker. "You're old! Why wouldn't you let me come see you, Bruce Springsteen, in your glory days- pun intended- and do it at noon or 1:00? 2:00! 2:00 matinee... I will come hear your five-hour concert, Bruce, at 2:00, and I'm gonna be home and in bed by 7:30."
