If you don’t remember, Reese Witherspoon agreed to star in another Legally Blonde sequel back in 2018.
This third film in the franchise has been moving slowly over the past year or two, but now it’s starting to come together.
We’re hearing that Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor will write the screenplay for the project. Goor and Kaling previously teamed up together to write the script for the upcoming wedding comedy starring Priyanka Chopra.
Reese will star in the film and produce through her Hello Sunshine production company.
Legally Blonde was a success for MGM in 2001, grossing $141.8 million worldwide. The film followed a perky sorority sister attempting to win back her ex-boyfriend by getting a law degree from Harvard University while remaining relentlessly upbeat and usually clad in pink.
The sequel, ‘Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde‘, made over $120 million when it was released in 2003.
No word on a potential release date for this third film, but considering they’re just now writing the script, it could be a minute.
