Legally blonde Wiki


In June of 2018, Reese Witherspoon confirmed that a third Legally Blonde film was in the works with writers Karen McCullah and Kirsten "Kiwi" Smith, who wrote the original 2001 film. But since its announcement, the third film has undergone a handful of changes and is still yet to start filming. [1][2]

Although it was originally reported that McCullah and Smith, the writers of the original 2001 film — but not the 2003 sequel — would handle the script, that changed in May of 2020 when Never Have I Ever's Mindy Kaling and Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Dan Goor were announced as screenwriters. Kaling took to social media following the news, saying, "Finally some use for my Elle Woods fan fiction! So excited to be reunited with my friends [Reese Witherspoon, Lauren Neustadter] and Dan Goor to work on this movie. Elle Woods is so iconic, proving you can be girly and smart at the same time. Bend and snap people!"[2]

Originally, it was scheduled to hit theaters on Valentine's Day of 2020. Then, with all of the chaos of 2020, the film was pushed until May of 2022. In March of 2022, Kaling told Time that the film was delayed indefinitely while she and Goor worked on the script. "We don't want to be responsible for ruining what's basically Reese's Avengers franchise," Kaling said, teasing that the film will explore questions like: "What is Elle Woods like at 42? Does she end up becoming all the things she wanted? How does that personality manifest in a grown woman? Has she become more cynical? Her brightness and her cheerfulness really worked when she was 22, but how has life changed her perspective on things?"[2]
