A Walk to Remember was adapted from Nicholas Sparks’ novel and follows high school senior Landon Carter and Jamie’s love story. The movie takes a sad turn when it’s revealed that Moore has leukemia. It‘s an emotional role that would take a talented actress and Moore had faith in Rodrigo. “I don’t know, Olivia Rodrigo or something like that,” Moore told PEOPLE. “Someone could redo this film.”

A Walk to Remember doesn’t have the highest ratings on Rotten Tomatoes but it‘s undoubtedly a cinematic moment in pop culture history. “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 told the outlet.

Rodrigo has been focused on music but that doesn’t mean she wouldn’t say yes to another role. The 18-year-old had her start on Disney Channel starring in Bizaardvark and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.
