Josh Lucas, 50, really wants to make a sequel to his 2002 movie, Sweet Home Alabama. The only problem? He’s not sure if his co-star, Reese Witherspoon, 45, would have the time to do it. But a new message from her on July 8 has fans wondering whether she’s finally agreeing to join Josh and make another movie together.
“Look, I would love to do the sequel. The issue is Reese’s got a book club. And I’m saying that like laughingly, but Reese is, you know, I’ve heard like, ‘Oh, you can talk to her about stuff five years from now.’ You know, she’s a mogul,” Josh said during an appearance on SiriusXM’s Pop Culture Spotlight with Jessica Shaw on July 6.
“And back when I was doing Sweet Home Alabama, I, for some reason, remember telling the director or somebody speaking about her, but I said, ‘I bet this woman ends up running a movie studio one day.’ And she’s even beyond that at this point. … I mean it’s extraordinary and not surprising either, at all,” he continued.
