Reese Witherspoon, who played Elle Woods in 2001’s “Legally Blonde” and its 2003 sequel told Ellen DeGeneres about plans for a third installment.
“We’re meeting about it. I mean, we’re definitely talking about it. I don’t know. Do you guys want to see ‘Legally Blonde 3’?” Witherspoon asked the audience. “I mean, it’s sort of about women being underestimated and I think it’s a good idea — that things have changed, but not that much has changed!”
Witherspoon confirmed a third film was in the works last summer with a video of herself wearing a pink bikini and floating in a pool, reminiscent of a scene from the original film. Witherspoon’s company Hello Sunshine is set to produce the movie slated for February release.
The “Legally Blonde” franchise followed a perpetually positive Woods as she pursued a law degree at Harvard University and then later a career in politics.
