Are we about to see Elle Woods on screen again? Has “Legally Blonde 3” finally been greenlighted?

According to Inquisitr, the project still remains just “an idea.” However, actress Reese Witherspoon thinks it’s the right time for Elle Woods to return on screen.

“I think we’re ready to see Elle and see what she’s up to,” Witherspoon said. “I actually think [a third film would be] great right now because we’re talking about women in politics and how important that is to get more women [in office.]” What does she think Elle could be up to a decade later? “A lot of writers over the years have come up with different ideas…I think it’d be kind of a cool thing to have her be a Supreme Court justice or someone who runs for office,” Reese teased.

Who does the Academy Award winning actress see as playing the iconic character in pink? Herself, of course. But if “Legally Blonde 3” does push through, they might need to recast Elle’s pet chihuahua. Entertainment Weekly previously reported that the dog who played the pooch, Bruiser Woods, has died. Witherspoon earlier posted a heartfelt tribute for the pooch on her Instagram. “He was a sweet Chihuahua who was very loved. I will never forget all the days we spent together…I’m sure his tail is wagging in the sky.” When will they begin casting for Bruiser? Stay tuned for updates.

It has been over a decade since we last saw Elle and Bruiser on the big screen. The “Legally Blonde” sequel, “Red, White and Blonde” was first released in 2003. According to E! Online, critics did not particularly enjoy the film. However, it still grossed almost $164 million (around US$125 million) worldwide. Should Witherspoon reprise her role as Elle Woods? Do you think they should make another “Legally Blonde” movie?
