CBS Films fostering 'Freaky' follow-up

By, Dave McNary - Variety CBS Films is developing the teen comedy "Freaky Monday" with producers Andrew Gunn and Mark Waters. Eye's film arm has optioned the body-switching novel from "Freaky Friday" writer Heather Hach. Hach co-wrote "Freaky Monday" with Mary Rodgers, author of the 1973 novel "Freaky Friday." "Freaky Monday" centers on a smart but insecure girl who magically switches bodies with her sympathetic junior high English teacher for a day. Jessica Tuchinsky and Ann Marie Sanderlin are exec producing. "Freaky Friday," produced by Gunn, helmed by Waters and starring Lindsay Lohan, was a solid hit for Disney in 2003 with a domestic gross of $110 million. Hach earned a Tony nomination for the book for "Legally Blonde: The Musical." She's repped by WME and managed by Anonymous Content.
