Legally Blonde 3 Is Happening
It’s official! Reese Witherspoon is back as Elle Woods for Legally Blonde 3.
It’s been 15 years since the last outing for the hapless sorority girl suffering from clinical blondeness, the uninspiring Legally Blonde 2, and 17 years since the hit original. Now, the band is getting back together. Reese is also bringing back the original writers, Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith, who penned the first movie based on the novel by Amanda Brown. MGM announced on Twitter that Legally Blonde 3 is destined for theaters Valentine’s Day, 2020!

Witherspoon also teased her return to the film on Twitter, releasing a video of her floating in a pool wearing the same sequined bikini as the first film. No other cast members have been confirmed to date, but Witherspoon will also co-produce the film through her production company Hello Sunshine.

There’s no word yet on the script, the plot, or other cast members, but we can expect a movie that elevates the first film’s spirit of female empowerment (rights for blondes!) and updates the original for 2018!
