Reese Witherspoon Confirms, Will Reprise Her Role As Elle Woods In ‘Legally Blonde 3’

Seventeen years after Reese Witherspoon taught audiences the joys of the “bend and snap” and how an all-pink outfit is never a bad idea, the actress is heading back to the big screen for “Legally Blonde 3”. The star confirmed the news on Twitter Thursday morning with a rather understated video:

The Oscar winner will return to screens as upbeat lawyer Elle Woods with the original film’s creative team of Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith and Karen McCullah set to return with a new script which is currently in the works. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but Deadline reports the sequel will focus on female empowerment.

The female-driven “Legally Blonde” and its 2003 sequel “Legally Blonde: Red, White & Blonde” have continued to find new audiences through home release and the successful stage musical that continues to tour across North America. Together, both films have grossed over $260 million on relatively modest budgets.

No word on when production will get underway or when “Legally Blonde 3” is expected to hit theatres.

Witherspoon is currently filming season 2 of the award-winning HBO series “Big Little Lies”, on which she also serves as the executive producer.
