“A Walk to Remember” was one of the most successful films released in 2002, with a romantic story that put many people to tears. After 20 years of launch, is it time for a reboot? There’s nothing confirmed, but who loved the idea was Mandy Moore, interpreter of the protagonist Jamie Sullivan.
Moore even has a suggestion for her successor: Olivia Rodrigo. The actress, who is currently the Rebecca of the series “This is Us”, told People magazine:
“I would love that [a reboot]. [About the actress] I don’t know, Olivia Rodrigo or someone like that. Someone could redo this film. I would love to see it. It’s been long enough that, yeah, I feel like we’ve earned our place in cinematic history for a reboot at this point”, she commented.
