Mandy Moore wants Olivia Rodrigo to star in ‘A Walk to Remember’ reboot

The iconic romantic drama A Walk to Remember is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and Mandy Moore thinks it’s time for the 2002 film to have its reboot—and she already has someone in mind to play the lead role: Olivia Rodrigo.

In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Moore, who played Jamie Sullivan, said that she’d love to see a remake of the 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.”

Moore also shared that she would love to see Olivia Rodrigo play her own role as Jamie Sullivan, saying, “I don’t know, Olivia Rodrigo or something like that. Someone could redo the film.”

A Walk to Remember had previously marked its 20th anniversary where Moore and her fellow co-star Shane West (who played Landon Carter) posted a throwback photo from the film.

Moore wrote in her Instagram post, “20 years ago, “A Walk to Remember” premiered in theaters. It unequivocally changed the course of my life and career and these 2 gentlemen were such a large part of it all.

She added, “Thanks to all those who have found and loved this movie and continue to pass it on. It (and @adamshankman & @theshanewest) will forever hold a very special place in my heart.”

Moore also admitted in a TikTok video that she hadn’t seen the movie in over a decade and planned to celebrate the film’s anniversary by watching it. She said, “I haven’t seen the movie in over a decade. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to watch the movie with all of you.”

Meanwhile, West took to his Instagram account his appreciation to both Moore and the film’s director Adam Shankman. He said, “20 years… my god. What can I say that hasn’t already been said? These two mean the world to me. The unconditional love from the fans. It’s rare we get an experience like this/something to hold onto. I’ll cherish this for the rest of my life.”
