Back in 2002, romantics swooned over Reese Witherspoon and Josh Lucas in the much-loved movie “Sweet Home Alabama.” And now, more than 15 years later, these fans are still swooning over the idea that these two just might find themselves together again on the silver screen.

“I would do it in a second,” Lucas said on Tuesday (July 17) during an interview on “The Talk.” “I think it would be so fascinating and obviously I don’t know where it would go, but I think it would be so fascinating to see where these two characters and the children and where everyone ended up. Are they still together? Are they divorced? Do they want to be back together? I mean, there are so many different ideas that I think, you know, we all know life is long and complex and they had an interesting relationship to begin with, the two characters.”

Could it really happen? Well, that remains to be seen, especially since Witherspoon recently signed up to film the sequel to one of her other popular movies – “Legally Blonde.”  But from the sounds of it, Lucas would definitely be all in.

“I mean, the fact that they were together from when they were children, I would love to see what’s going on 20 years later,” he said.
