MGM Studios announced the news on Twitter late Tuesday, following the “Legally Blonde” virtual reunion featuring Reese Witherspoon and her co-stars Selma Blair (Vivian Kensington), Jessica Cauffiel (Margot), Jennifer Coolidge (Paulette Bonafonté), Matthew Davis (Warner Huntington III), Ali Larter (Brooke Taylor Windham), Holland Taylor (Professor Stromwell), Alanna Ubach (Serena McGuire), and Luke Wilson (Emmett Richmond)
“Elle Woods is back! Legally Blonde 3 coming May 2022. We rest our case,” the studio tweeted.
In May, Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor were set as the duo writing the sequel, which will feature Witherspoon reprising her iconic role from the first two “Legally Blonde” films.
Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine is producing “Legally Blonde 3,” alongside Marc Platt and Adam Siegel, president of Platt Productions. Hello Sunshine’s head of film and television, Lauren Neustadter, is also producing.
