After the news that we're going to be seeing another Legally Blonde, 17 years after the original was released, talk of a sequel to another Reese Witherspoon classic is in the works.

The actress and her 'Sweet Home Alabama' co-star Josh Lucas have expressed interest in making a second installment of the 2002 rom-com. Lucas said this week that he had reached out to Witherspoon to get the sequel moving:

"I’ve even reached out to Reese, and I know Reese has said as well — it’s an iconic film," he explained. "I would love [a sequel] because I would love to see where these characters ended up or where they are at this point in their lives."

Reese mentioned she's open to making the sequel way back in 2016 during a live Q&A session on Facebook: “If Disney wants to call me, I would happily make a Sweet Home Alabama 2!” she said.

Here's Josh talking about the prospect, including some plot point ideas of his own. We really hope this happens!
