To Mandy Moore, the actress who currently stars This is Us and that in the 90s he conquered us with his interpretation the romantic tragedy A Walk To Remember has just come up with the best idea we have heard in a long time: to make a reboot of the iconic film.
And not only that, in addition to proposing a reboot, Mandy Moore has even thought about who could give life to the character she played: Olivia Rodrigo!
In an interview with People, Moore said she would “love a reboot” and added that she imagined Olivia Rodrigo as Jamie, the protagonist. “I would love to see it. It’s been enough time that, yes, I feel like we’ve earned our place in film history for a reboot at this point.”
The actress went on to say that the reboot could also function as a celebration that the classic is about to turn 20 years since its premiere in 2002.
As if that wasn’t enough, Moore revealed that during filming, she and her co-star Shane West, who played her love interest, Ladon Carter, fell in love. “Somehow, we had this really natural, effortless chemistry between us. And I think that shows up in the movie and it’s hard to understand. You can’t really fake that,”he noted.
In case you don’t remember what the film is about, it refreshes your memory. It is based on one of the novels by renowned writer Nicholas Sparks. Jamie is a terminally ill young woman who has an angelic voice and falls in love with West, a young man who at first ignored her but falls in love with her just before her untimely death
