Mindy Kaling (“The Office”) and Dan Goor (“Parks and Recreation”) will write the script for “Legally Blonde 3.”

Reese Witherspoon will reprise the starring role as Elle Woods in the third installment of the hit comedy franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter. 

Witherspoon’s banner Hello Sunshine, and the company’s head of television and film Lauren Neustadter, will produce the sequel, along with Marc Platt and Adam Siegel of Platt Productions.

2001’s “Legally Blonde,” starring Witherspoon as a perky blonde with a fluffy dog and pink wardrobe who becomes an unlikely standout student at stodgy Harvard Law School, was a surprise box-office smash. Witherspoon also starred in the 2003 sequel “Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde.”

Witherspoon confirmed in 2018 that a third “Legally Blonde” film was planned. The Hollywood Reporter reported then that the original film’s writers, Kirsten Smith and Karen McCullah, were in talks to return.

-BAM
