Reese Witherspoon Up For A Third Legally Blonde Film
Reese Witherspoon is keen to return to the big screen as lawyer Elle Woods for a third Legally Blonde movie. The Oscar winner admits she’d love to see what her old character is up to, and during an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Wednesday, the 40-year-old pitched a new idea for a follow-up to 2003’s Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde.
“I think it would be kind of cool to see her (Woods) 15 years later,” she said. “Like, what’s she doing now? What do you think? I don’t know. But I need a good idea.
“She could be a Supreme Court Justice, or she could be a really great, powerful attorney… or she could be in prison! She could be anything. I don’t know!”
Corden was tickled by the possibility of bringing the cast back together for round three. “Why isn’t this film happening?” he wondered. “What do we have to do to get this film over the line?”
Witherspoon’s co-stars Mary Lynn Rajskub and Luke Wilson asked the same question when they appeared on Corden’s show in 2015. They might want to make a third film just to save their reputation after Legally Blonde 2 made Entertainment Weekly’s list of worst sequels ever made. “That’s why we need to do three,” Wilson argued at the time, “to bring everybody back.”
Reunion talks aren’t just talks, either. The cast really wants to reunite on the big screen.
