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.
