More John Tucker Must Die could be coming our way soon!

Jesse Metcalfe, Sophia Bush and Arielle Kebbel reunited for a panel at Epic Cons Chicago on Sunday, almost 18 years after the release of their classic teen comedy, where they said a sequel to the film has been written.

"I've heard rumors of this script — there's a script," said Metcalfe, 45. "Apparently it's amazing."

And while he hasn't seen the screenplay himself, "I'd definitely love to be a part of it," the actor said, adding that he "can't wait to read it."

John Tucker Must Die follows Metcalfe's titular womanizer as he dates three girls at the same time: Heather (Ashanti), Beth (Bush, 41) and Carrie (Kebbel, 39). As revenge for him breaking up with all of them, the girls enlist fellow student Kate (Brittany Snow) to help bring him down.

After revealing that the script, which she had a hand in creating, "does involve all of the OG cast," Kebbel told the crowd that Metcalfe's character "may or may not get a chance to change" his ways, "which would be very exciting."

"Do I get a chance to wear a thong again?" Metcalfe joked, to which Kebbel responded, "We wanted to talk to you about that."

"We were thinking you'd actually, like, make your own brand, endorse it. It'd be a whole thing," she quipped.

"I'm here for it. I can't wait to unleash this dad bod on the big screen," Metcalfe added.

John Tucker Must Die was Metcalfe's first-ever film appearance, and he told PEOPLE last year that it's still the role he gets recognized for more often.

He also said he'd be open to a sequel if it should ever come to fruition, for fans to see what John is up to almost two decades later.

"Sure. Why not? I don't know if I see that happening, but I'm down," said the On a Wing and a Prayer actor, going on to share what his idea for a reboot to the comedy might be.

"I always thought a good way to do a John Tucker Must Die revival would be that the entire cast is younger. And then I play the John Tucker character's uncle, who grew up to kind of be a loser," Metcalfe said. "It could be funny."
