To those asking why we need another Legally Blonde 3, first of all how dare you? It’s been in the pipeline for some time now, but confirmation comes straight from THR that Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor have signed up to pen the brand new, long anticipated threequel, Legally Blonde 3. What’s even better is that Reese Witherspoon will also be returning to the franchise as the film’s leading law-abiding lady, Elle Woods, as well.
Stewing in development hell for some time now, Witherspoon revealed a while back that she’d be returning as Woods in the not-too-distant future, and now Kaling and Goor will be helping make that happen. Details on plot are obviously a bit slim at the moment, but expect more to be shown to the jury (that’s us) in the future.
It’ll be interesting to see how Kaling and Goor handle the threequel, considering there’s been 17 years since Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde, which saw Woods give the White House a wink as her next big venture. Could she finally have made it to the top and the world a better place as a result? Let’s face it, crazier things have happened.
Expect more updates on this as it develops.
