Josh Lucas and Reese Witherspoon are Both Interested in a ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ Sequel with Disney. Recently, actor Josh Lucas expressed great interest in filming a sequel to the hit early 2000’s movie Sweet Home Alabama. Lucas shared: “Look, I would love to do the sequel. The issue is Reese’s [Witherspoon] got a book club. And I’m saying that like laughingly, but Reese is, you know, I’ve heard like, ‘Oh, you can talk to her about stuff five years from now.’ You know, she’s a mogul.”
He continued, “And back when I was doing Sweet Home Alabama, I, for some reason, remember telling the director or somebody speaking about her, but I said, ‘I bet this woman ends up running a movie studio one day.’ And she’s even beyond that at this point. … I mean it’s extraordinary and not surprising either, at all.”
Back in 2016, Reese had also shared an interest in a second movie during a Facebook live chat, “I love Sweet Home Alabama! 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!”

Personally, I feel a Sweet Home Alabama sequel would do well as an exclusive title on Disney+, but it doesn’t sound like a sequel is actively in development at the studio. Should the right ears hear about the stars’ interest in a second film we may get the chance! Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Disney!
