Stephen: Mindy Kaling to co-write Legally Blonde 3
Reese Witherspoon is getting a little help from friend Mindy Kaling in bringing Legally Blonde 3 to the big screen. Kaling, who co-starred with Witherspoon in A Wrinkle in Time, has signed on to pen the Legally Blonde 3 script alongside co-writer Dan Goor, best known for his work on sitcoms like Parks and Recreation and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Witherspoon confirmed that Legally Blonde 3 was a go back in 2018 when she tweeted video of herself floating on a pool chaise in a two-piece along with the caption, “It’s true… #LegallyBlonde3.” The clip references the famous scene from the original 2001 comedy in which her character, Elle Woods, floats on a chaise while wearing a bikini in a video essay for her Harvard Law School application. The 44-year-old Oscar winner also said last year on Ellen, “We’re meeting about it. We’re definitely talking about it.” Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde came out way back in 2003.
