So much for being able to kiss anytime they want!
While on “Good Morning America” Wednesday, Reese Witherspoon’s “Sweet Home Alabama” co-star Josh Lucas was asked about plans for a follow-up to the 2002 film, also featuring Patrick Dempsey and Candice Bergen.
In the flick, Melanie
Carmichael Smooter shuns southern life, in exchange for the opulence of New York City. Lucas plays her childhood sweetheart, Jake, who she needs to divorce before marrying Dempsey.
Lucas said on ABC’s morning program that he and director Andy Tennant talked about a sequel “extensively” and are “lobbying for the world to join us.”
Though a proposed synopsis might break the hearts of those who support Melanie and Jake.
“The proposal that Andy Tennant, the director, had which was quite interesting was that my character is back in Alabama, and Reese is actually, her character is in New York with our kids,” Lucas explained. “We’re divorced. So the whole life is super complicated.”
Lucas didn’t answer if Jake would win Melanie back, but revealed Dempsey’s character Andrew “is still in the picture.”
Before hitting the bar (with or without a baby), let’s remember what Lucas advised, that this is “just a proposal.”
Witherspoon voiced her enthusiasm for a sequel live on Facebook in 2016.
“We are not making a sequel that I know of, but if Disney wants to make a sequel they can just call me,” the “Big Little Lies” actress said. “I would happily make ‘Sweet Home Alabama 2.’ ”
