Back in the game, back in the fray, back the hell out of her way, cause it’s Reese Witherspoon coming through.
The day started out just like any other regular day, but it got a whole lot better when we heard that the Oscar-winning actress is in talks to reprise her role as Elle Woods for “Legally Blonde 3”.
A vague description about “Legally Blonde 3” by Deadline reads:
“They are keeping the plot under wraps, but I’m told it will be much in the spirit of the first film, in which Woods’ idealism and pink-dominant wardrobe prevailed over the cynicism and snootiness all around her after the freshly dumped former sorority sister heads to law school. The sequel brought her to D.C. to join the staff of a congresswoman to pass a bill to ban animal testing. The intention here is to make this more about female empowerment, a message that hits at a fortuitous time in the culture. The feeling is to draw back in the audience that grew up with the original film and find a new global audience.”
If the deal goes through, the 42-year-old A-lister would also produce through her Hello Sunshine production company. Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith and Karen McCullah are also reportedly in final talks to return as the screenwriters. A director has not been secured yet.
During her appearance on “The Late Late Show” in March, Witherspoon and James Corden were pitching potential story ideas. “I think it would be kind of cool to see her 15 years later. Like, what’s she doing now? What do you think? I don’t know. But I need a good idea,” she asked the talk show host.
When Corden suggested that Woods could become the first female president of the United States, Witherspoon replied, “She could, yeah. She could be a Supreme Court Justice, or she could be a really great, powerful attorney … or she could be in prison!”
Could you see Ms Woods campaigning to become the first woman president?
Here is a suggestion – “Legally Blonde 3: Commander In Chic”, the next instalment in the blonde cinematic universe we’re all excited about.
UPDATE (8th June):
