Legally Blonde 3 : Reese Witherspoon returns, Mindy Kaling to co-write

Legally Blonde 3 : Reese Witherspoon returns, Mindy Kaling to co-write”

After almost two years since we last heard an update on MGM's highly-anticipated Legally Blonde 3 (which was supposed to debut earlier this year), Deadline now brings word that Emmy Award-winning writer-actress Mindy Kaling (The Office, The Mindy Project) and Dan Goor (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) have officially signed on to co-write the screenplay for the long-in development Reese Witherspoon-led third installment. Legally Blonde released in 2001 and focused on Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon), a fashionable sorority queen is dumped by her boyfriend.

The 40-year-old actress will be co-writing the script with Brooklyn Nine-Nine creator Dan Goor.

Witherspoon, 44, who will also be an executive producer for the movie, expressed her delight in a Twitter post today (May 20): "Some things are just meant to be!"

It was first revealed two years ago that a third Legally Blonde movie was in the works and two other writers had written a script.

Legally Blonde 3 is closer than ever to becoming a reality. "Bend and snap people!"

Kaling was equally thrilled, tweeting yesterday that she was "excited to be reunited with [HER] friends" and describing the role of Elle Woods as "iconic". She captioned the post, "It's true..." So full of fashion. It will be global...that's my hope and dream for Legally Blonde 3.

In Legally Blonde 2, Elle Woods heads to Washington, D.C. - so really, who knows what she'll tackle next? Elle Woods is one of Reese's most iconic characters of all time. Wouldn't it be nice to see her take on something truly unknown?
