The third instalment of the “Legally Blonde” franchise starring Reese Witherspoon is officially in the works.
In final talks to return for the project are original screenwriters Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith and Karen McCullah, who wrote the script for the first film based on the Amanda Brown novel, reports ew.com.
However, McCullah and Smith were not the writers behind the second film, so it’s not yet known if the third film will incorporate the events of 2003’s “Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde”.
Witherspoon is in early talks to reprise her role, Elle Woods, a wealthy sorority girl who discovered her own sense of self-worth by attending Harvard Law School and realizing she was far too good for Warner.
She will serve as a producer on the film.
