Reese Witherspoon to Reprise Role as Elle Woods in ‘Legally Blonde 3’


Deadline reported, MGM are currently negotiating with Reese Witherspoon to reprise her iconic role, Elle Woods, for Legally Blonde 3.

The original creative time behind Legally Blonde are attached to the possible sequel. Kristen Smith will pen the script with Marc Platt Adam Siegel are producing; in addition, to Witherspoon who’ll be producing through her studio Hello Sunshine.

As of right now, there’s no attached director.

You can read the possible synopsis of Legally Blonde 3 below:

They are keeping the plot under wraps, but I’m told it will be much in the spirit of the first film, in which Woods’ idealism and pink-dominant wardrobe prevailed over the cynicism and snootiness all around her after the freshly dumped former sorority sister heads to law school. The sequel brought her to D.C. to join the staff of a congresswoman to pass a bill to ban animal testing. The intention here is to make this more about female empowerment, a message that hits at a fortuitous time in the culture. The feeling is to draw back in the audience that grew up with the original film and find a new global audience.
