Reese Witherspoon in talks to return for 'Legally Blonde 3'

Reese Witherspoon in talks to return for 'Legally Blonde 3'

"Legally Blonde" is getting another sequel after 15 years. That misstep, perhaps, can be corrected with the very-close-to-happening Legally Blonde 3. News broke Monday that Witherspoon is in negotiations with MGM to make another film about her popular alter-ego, Elle Woods.

Elle Woods may soon be bringing her brand of girl power back to the big screen: "Legally Blonde 3" is reportedly now in development.

In addition to Witherspoon, screenwriters Kristen "Kiwi" Smith and Karen McCullah (the women behind the 2001 adaptation of Amanda Brown's novel) are both in talks to return to write the script for the threequel.

Legally Blonde debuted in 2001, with the sequel, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde coming out two years later.




Legally Blonde's original producer, Marc Platt, and his Platt Productions president Adam Siegal are reportedly producing, joined this time by Witherspoon and her Hello Sunshine media brand. The hit stage musical continues to tour, 17 years after the movie debuted at box offices. The third "will be much in the spirit of the first film" focusing on "female empowerment". "The summer before she mentioned that "[Legally Blonde] was really fun. She has been shooting and exec producing the second season of HBO's Big Little Lies.

Though Legally Blondes, the 2009 straight-to-DVD misfire, technically counts as the third installment in the franchise, we're going to pretend that never happened.

"I actually think it's kind of great right now because we're talking about women in politics and how important [it] is to get more women [in office]", Witherspoon said in 2015.
