What is the Latest News of Legally Blonde 3?

Days after the 20th anniversary of the first Legally Blonde movie in 2021, Kaling (read more about her involvement with the film below) was asked for an update on the upcoming movie while on Watch What Happens Live! She revealed that she has already had several conversations with Witherspoon about the direction the movie should take.

Kaling said that the most “intimidating” aspect of joining such a well-known film is “capturing the voice and things like “bend and snap.” There are so many iconic moments in [the film] that we have to come up with our own version of that, which is intimidating.”

The Mindy Project star said that Witherspoon asked her to write the script, and she confirmed that Paulette, played by Jennifer Coolidge, would be back “1,000%.”

When host Andy Cohen asked Kaling if Elle Woods would run for president, she was less forthcoming…

In an interview with USA Today, Witherspoon said that she loves and is very protective of the characters in Legally Blonde. “I feel like these characters are my friends, so I look out for them,” she said.

Regina King (Grace Rossiter) and Matthew Davis (Warner) have both expressed interest in appearing in the upcoming picture.

What Is The Plot of Legally Blonde 3?

The plot’s specifics are still a closely guarded secret. Mindy Kaling (The Office, The Mindy Project) and Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-creator Dan Goor wrote the third part.

Mindy remarked in an interview with Access Hollywood: “I can’t wait to hear what people think of the way Elle Woods at 40 has been written. Imagining Elle Woods at age 40 versus age 21 has been a lot of fun.”

The Instagram image below reveals how delighted Reese is to have Mindy on board, the duo have worked together on the Apple TV+ series The Morning Show and the 2018 feature A Wrinkle in Time.

Mindy also revealed that a number of fan-favorite moments and Elle’s trademark catchphrases would still be a key part of the film.

“Bend and snap is eternal”, she remarked during her discussion with Hollywood Access.

In a November 2021 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, MGM executive Pamela Abdy was questioned about her knowledge of Legally Blonde 3.

“That is actually occurring. Reese Witherspoon will star in it, and Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor are currently scripting it. Marc Platt, Reese, and Lauren Neustadter are producing. We’re all developing it together. What does Elle Woods look like at age 40? Elle is a parent with a great job.”

We also know that Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon is a staunch supporter of giving women powerful and inspiring parts, and has focused much of her work with her own production company, Hello Sunshine, on this.

She was featured on the cover of Time magazine in 2021 in recognition of her good impact on the entertainment industry.
