'Legally Blonde 3' in the Works, Reese Witherspoon to Star and Produce

In any case, having Elle in that position would be a great way to get the character involved in certain current legal matters on a national scale.

Perhaps it's inevitable that, after producing and starring in half the movies and TV shows in Hollywood, Reese Witherspoon might just come back to Legally Blonde. Kirsten "Kiwi" Smith and Karen McCullah, who adapted the Amanda Brown novel for the 2001 first film, are in final talks to write the script. The original producers, Marc Platt and his Platt Productions president Adam Siegel will be returning as well. The search for a director is still on.

I'll be honest. After seeing and loving the first Legally Blonde film back in the day, I never saw Legally Blonde 2: Red, White, and Blonde.

The sequel followed Elle Woods to Washington D.C. where she joined the staff of a congresswoman (Sally Field) as she tries to bass a ban on all animal testing.

Demi responded in a now deleted tweet , "I hired a lady of the night in Vegas and sent her to Max's hotel room to surprise him". That also set off fans, who thought the comparison between sexual assault and jelly beans was minimizing at the least.

The plot is now being kept under wraps, but will focus on "female empowerment".

Witherspoon has been lobbying for the return of Legally Blonde for awhile, telling E! news past year that "I do think it's a good time to do [another movie]". In any case, I think now that enough time has passed, it'd be cool to catch up with Elle Woods. "The summer before she mentioned that "[Legally Blonde] was really fun.

Though Legally Blondes, the 2009 straight-to-DVD misfire, technically counts as the third installment in the franchise, we're going to pretend that never happened.

Lots of possibilities! If you're a fan of the original movie (and/or the sequel), let us know where you would like to see a third Legally Blonde cover, and where you think Elle Woods is now.
