Josh Lucas Says Reese Witherspoon Has to Give the Go-Ahead on ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ Sequel

Josh Lucas is ready to return to Alabama!

ET’s Nischelle Turner caught up with the 48-year-old actor at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s annual grants banquet on Wednesday, and he revealed that he’s definitely down to reprise his beloved role as Jake Perry in the 2002 flick Sweet Home Alabama. Before Lucas heads down south, though, he shared that it’s his co-star, Reese Witherspoon, who’d get the final say on if the romantic comedy could score a sequel.

“I’m up for it. I know Reese’s said she is as well,” Lucas told ET. “The director [Andy Tennant] is absolutely up for it. I spoke to him about it a couple of times recently. So look, I throw it out to you, Reese.”

“… I think the person who’s the one to put it together is Reese, so I’m hoping,” he continued. “Who knows? She’s got a lot of irons in the fire to say the least. Hopefully this is one of them.”

As for if there’s any movement to make the sequel a reality, Lucas revealed that Tennant “has a script and a development he has done,” but cautioned that this “doesn’t mean” that there’s anything official just yet.

“I think the thing about the story, it’s one of those [where] they’re eternally in love,” Lucas said. “So, even if they’re going through a rough time, whatever it is, they’re eternally in love. That’s kind of the beauty in that magical film.”

During a Facebook Live chat back in 2016, Witherspoon gushed over starring as Melanie Smooter in the film and revealed that she’d be down for making a sequel.

“I love Sweet Home Alabama!” Witherspoon said. “We are not making a sequel that I know of, but if Disney wants to call me, I would happily make a Sweet Home Alabama 2!”
