The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates star Drew Barrymore has said she would be up for making more movies with Adam Sandler.
Sandler and Barrymore are a well established rom-com couple, having previously worked together multiple times over more than 15 years.
The pair first starred in a film together in 1998, when Barrymore appeared as the love interest in Sandler's much-loved comedy The Wedding Singer.
Their performance in the comedy earned the actors the MTV Movie & TV Award for Best Kiss, and their chemistry proved just too good not to revisit.
They were finally reunited six years later, when Sandler's character Henry stumbled upon the beautiful and charming Lucy (Barrymore), only to discover she had short term memory loss. As a result, the pair had no choice but to embark on - you guessed it - 50 First Dates.
Their most recent work together came in the 2014 film Blended, when, rather than falling for each other from the start, Sandler and Barrymore's characters went on a blind date and never wanted to see each other again.
Unfortunately that didn't quite work out as they then both ended up at the same safari resort with their children.
It's now nearing 10 years since they last starred in a film together, and Barrymore has since established her own chat show The Drew Barrymore Show, where she welcomes guests and chats about her personal life.
In an interview with People, Barrymore said her show has allowed her 'so much growth', explaining: "I knew what I was pitching was not playing a character, it was being me. I wanted to work as me, whatever it was going to be."
The show also worked better for her as a mother to two daughters, Frankie and Olive, as it gave her more free time than she'd have with a film.
Barrymore noted that films require 'investing two years into something that could disappear overnight'.
However, she stressed that the chat show doesn't mean she's 'never going back' to making movies, and admitted that there is one person who might be able to sway her to return.
She explained: "As soon as you talk about Adam Sandler, I'm like, 'Oh, well maybe. Sure'."
Sandler and Barrymore previously teased the idea of a fourth movie in 2020, when they were awarded the Greatest of All Time award at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.
At the time, Barrymore told Sandler it was 'so much fun to make a movie with you in every of the last three decades'.
In response, Sandler commented: "Yes, yes, and Drew, it’s 2020 so you know what that means …”
Only time will tell whether the pair will get behind the camera again, but at least we know they'd put on a good show if they do.
