Earlier this week, writer Karen McCullah confirmed that she and cowriter Kirsten Smith were working on a Legally Blonde sequel, though it was unclear what it would entail and who would be returning for the film. But today, Reese Witherspoon confirmed her involvement with the film in the most Elle Woods way possible: by lounging on a pool floaty in her signature pink bikini.
But Witherspoon will do more than just reprise her role as the bubbly, sorority-girl lawyer. She’s also tackling the role of producer this time around, now that she has some experience under her belt.
The newest Legally Blonde installment comes 17 years after the original and 15 years after the sequel, and will channel many of the same empowerment vibes. According to Deadline, it will be much in the spirit of the first film, rather than the second, which is probably a good thing, because I don’t really remember the second.
I guess it’s time to start watching Legally Blonde 1 & 2 and repeat in preparation. I am READY for this.
