Curtis, who portrayed Lohan's onscreen mother in the beloved film "Freaky Friday," revealed that a much-anticipated sequel to the hit movie is currently on hold due to the ongoing Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike, per Entertainment Weekly.

The "Everything Everywhere All At One" actress went on, "We're in the middle of a contract dispute.

The Writers Guild of America, representing thousands of screenwriters, has been engaged in a strike to secure fair payment and protections for its members.
