It sounds like some of the Parent Trap stars are reuniting, much to the excitement of diehard fans! According to new reports, Lindsay Lohan, Dennis Quaid and some other people involved in making the cult classic movie are set to come together again for a special that will be moderated by Katie Couric.
This will be the very first cast reunion since the movie was released in 1998 so it’s safe to say that it’s a really exciting event!
Not only that but it’s for a good cause as well! The reunion is apparently meant to raise funds for World Central Kitchen – José Andrés’ NGO!
As for the 1998 movie starring a young Lindsay Lohan in a double role, The Parent Trap, it was actually a remake of the 1961 version with the same title.
Furthermore, both were adapted from a 1949 German novel titled ‘Lottie and Lisa’ and written by Erich Kästner.
Some of the stars acting in the 1998 adaptation as well as the director Nancy Meyers and writer and producer Charles Shyer will be reuniting, virtually, due to the pandemic, tomorrow!
