Get your bend and snap ready people, this is not a drill! Reese Witherspoon’s Legally Blonde 3 update included her hope that three actors from the 2001 original film would take up their roles in a potential followup. Witherspoon talked with Entertainment Tonight in an interview that the movie is still “just a development project right now.” Witherspoon also talked about her love for Jennifer Coolidge (Paulette), Luke Wilson (Emmett), and Selma Blair (Vivian). She told Entertainment Tonight, “If we end up doing it, hopefully they end up all being there. There’s so many great characters that people love.”
In case you missed it, Witherspoon first confirmed a third Legally Blonde movie in June 2018. In typical Hollywood form, she posted an Instagram video of herself wearing a hot pink bikini and floating in a pool, basically re-creating a Legally Blonde scene. She captioned the post, “It’s true…#LegallyBlonde3′.
She then later talked to James Corden saying “it would be kind of cool” to see her character 15 years later, guessing Elle Woods could be a Supreme Court justice or a powerful attorney.
Witherspoon also revealed to Entertainment Tonight in a separate interview back in 2018 that she had recently attended a meeting where she and producers had discussed “new plot points and all the characters and some returning characters and some new characters.” She added that her reaction after the meeting was, “This is gonna be good.”
We are, like, so ready!
