Bend & Snap, Reese Witherspoon is in Talks to Return for Legally Blonde 3!
It’s been 17 years since the first Legally Blonde movie graced theaters and 15 years since the sequel was released, but get ready because it sounds like Elle Woods is coming back for Legally Blonde 3!
According to Deadline, Reese Witherspoon is currently in talks with MGM to reprise her role as Elle for a third Legally Blonde flick. Yes, this is actually happening. Besides Reese, the studio is also looking to bring back most of the creative team from the first movie. Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith and Karen McCullah, who wrote the original film, are also in talks to write the script. The original Legally Blonde producer, Marc Platt, will be producing the third installment, but this time he’ll be partnering with Reese’s production company, Hello Sunshine, which means Reese will also serve as an executive producer on the film. What…like it’s hard?! So now they just need to make sure Jennifer Coolidge can reprise her role as Paulette, because frankly a Legally Blonde movie just wouldn’t be the same without her.
Even though it’s been over a decade since the last film came out, the timing of a kick-ass, female empowering Legally Blonde 3 couldn’t be more perfect, thanks the dramatic cultural shift that’s been happening in the wake of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. No details about the plot have been revealed yet, but Deadline reports it will be “in the spirit of the first film, in which Woods’ idealism and pink-dominant wardrobe prevailed over the cynicism and snootiness all around her.” UG
We can’t wait to see what Elle has accomplished since Legally Blonde 2, but we also have so many questions! Like, does Elle have kids now? Is she single, dating, or married? Will there be a new Bruiser? And, most importantly — does she still wear pink suits to the courtroom!?
Hurry up and make this movie happen, MGM, because WE NEED ANSWERS!!
