  • Hero image

Bend-and-Snapping fans from the original 'Legally Blonde' movie in 2001 will be excited to read that Reese Witherspoon is in talks to return Elle Woods to the silver screen for 'Legally Blonde 3'. 

The Golden Globe-nominated original was so successful, it spawned a sequel in 2003 and a Broadway musical adaptation in 2007. 

What would a third installment of the franchise look like for Elle Woods? 

During a 2015 interview with Rachel Zoe, Reese talked about putting on the pink to play one of her most famous characters again, saying "A lot of writers over the years have come up with different ideas for it. I actually think it's kind of great right now because we're talking about women in politics and how important that is, to get more women." She added, "And I think it'd be kind of cool to have Elle Woods be a Supreme Court Justice or somebody who runs for office, like president."

Reese has confirmed the news on instagram:
