Mindy Kaling (The Office) and Dan Goor (Parks and Recreation) will write the script of the movie
Elle Woods is back and she is ready to entertain her fans in MGM's Legally Blonde 3.
The new script of the movie will be written by her close friend Mindy Kaling (The Office) and Dan Goor (Parks and Recreation).
Reese Witherspoon will also produce the movie through her Hello Sunshine production company.
This is the second feature film that Kaling and Goor will be partnering on following the Kaling and Priyanka Chopra's upcoming wedding comedy that Universal won in an auction last year.
It was announced in 2018 that a new Legally Blonde film was on its way and that the writers from the first film, Kirsten "Kiwi" Smith and Karen McCullah, were originally set to write the script.
"Legally Blonde" was a success for MGM in 2001, grossing $141.8 million worldwide. The film followed a perky sorority sister attempting to win back her ex-boyfriend by getting a law degree from Harvard University while remaining relentlessly upbeat and usually clad in pink. The classic film also starred Luke Wilson, Selma Blair, Matthew Davis, Victor Garber, Jennifer Coolidge and a Chihuahua named Bruiser, owned by Witherspoon's character.
