A Possible Sweet Home Alabama Sequel
Due to the enormous success of the movie, fans are still awaiting the movie’s follow up all these years. Sweet Home Alabama director Andy Tennant teased the fans that he’s had a prospective follow up story. When Insider spoke with Tennant in 2015, he exposed that he was considering the movie’s follow up.
The director detailed the follow up as he shared, “What happened was Reese’s daughter, Ava, went to school with my son, so I would see Reese on occasion. When the movie got to like 13 to 14 years later, I started thinking where they would all be. Where are those four characters now: Melanie, Jake, Andrew, and Melanie Lynskey’s character, Lurlynn? My kids were going through college so it got me thinking about a new generation of kids going to school and young love and what that would do to parents when they see their kids being real grown-ups. If the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree, what is Melanie’s daughter like?”
Josh Lucas was likewise quite open up to the concept and has actually become aware of Tennant’s follow up story. He stated, “Andy told me there would be an honesty to it. That Jake would have mid-life issues and that there are differences where Jake and Melanie landed. Hell, maybe Jake now lives in a trailer park while Melanie had built this perfect life.”
Despite having a prospective follow up, Reese Witherspoon hasn’t become aware of it. With the hectic schedule of the starlet turned business owner, Lucas confessed that he hasn’t fulfilled the starlet in years. He concluded, “I frankly haven’t run into Reese since making the movie. I keep hearing that others from the movie would absolutely love to do it. I would love to do a ‘Sweet Home Alabama 2.'”
