On the 15th anniversary of “A Walk to Remember,” Mandy Moore gave fans the ultimate gift: She told the Twittervese that she and Shane West were working on some sort of reunion.

“We’re working on it!” The actress responded to a fan during a Twitter “Ask Me Anything.”

Of course, we’re pretty sure this reunion wouldn’t entail a movie sequel because… (spoiler alert!)… Moore’s character dies in the 2002 teenage weepy, one of the first Nicholas Sparks novels adapted to the big screen.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the “This Is Us” actress opened up about the impact the romance film had on her life — who filmed the Sparks adaptation when she was just 16.

I think that it was such an overwhelmingly positive, memorable experience for me because it was my first leading role, and it was the first film I worked on away from home,” she said. “We shot it in Wilmington, North Carolina, and it was the first time I’d ever had that kind of camp-like experience where you come home and cry when it’s over and you’re determined to keep in touch with everyone. It just gives me an all-encompassing warm feeling inside.”

She added, “There are very few times in your career when the memories and the relationship you have to a project match the relationship that an audience has to the project — but this movie is as special to me as it seems to be to people out there in the world. I mean that’s the reason that 15 years later we’re still talking about it.”

West agreed, saying it was “a phenomenal experience.”

“A Walk to Remember” starred Moore as Jamie Sullivan, who strikes up an unusual relationship with popular and rebellious teenager Landon Carter (West). They fall in love, but it doesn’t come easy: high school cliques and disapproving parents come in the way, and Jamie has a secret that will impact Landon’s life forever.

Peter Coyote and Daryl Hannah also starred in the Adam Shankman directed film. It is based on Sparks’ novel of the same name, which was published in 1999.
