While chatting with Jessica Shaw on SiriusXM’s “Pop Culture Spotlight,” Josh said he would “love” to do a Sweet Home Alabama sequel, but only if Reese would be on board too.

“Look, I would love to do the sequel. The issue is Reese’s got a book club,” Josh said. “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.”

Josh then went on to gush about Reese, saying he always knew she would become a huge mogul one day.

“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,’” Josh recalled. “And she’s even beyond that at this point. I mean, you know, she’s, she’s her own version of Oprah Winfrey now, right? I mean, she’s, she’s as, and it’s extraordinary and not surprising either, at all.”

Josh finished up by saying, “Reese, c’mon, let’s go do it.”

Released in 2002, Josh and Reese starred in Sweet Home Alabama alongside Patrick Dempsey, Candice Bergen, and Jean Smart.
