Josh Lucas announced that there’s a proposal for a Sweet Home Alabama sequel!
In an interview with Good Morning America on Wednesday, Lucas revealed that a follow-up to the 2002 film is seriously being considered.
Lucas, who played Jake Perry said, “I’ve absolutely said yes.” He also noted that he has spoken to the film’s director, Andy Tennant about it. “He and I discussed it extensively so we’re lobbying the world to join us.”
“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.”
“And Patrick Dempsey’s character is still in the picture,” he added laughing. “But that’s just a proposal.”
The actor also discussed his upcoming movie Breakthrough, also starring Chrissy Metz and Steph Curry as the executive producer.
“This is an extraordinary true story that happened a few years back. A 14-year-old boy was playing on the ice and he was underwater for 15 minutes. He was lifeless, no pulse, no nothing for an hour,” Lucas explained. “They basically stop resuscitation and they bring the mother into the room to say goodbye — [she] refuses to believe that he’s gone and so she starts praying and speaking to her god and his pulse comes back.”
