Everyone\u2019s favourite Gemini vegetarian is postponing her return to the big screen. \u201cLegally Blonde 3\u201d has pushed back its release date and will debut in May 2022. Reese Witherspoon is reprising her iconic role as sorority girl-turned-lawyer Elle Woods for the third instalment in the series. The threequel, from MGM, was initially scheduled to open this February, but those plans were quietly derailed even before the coronavirus pandemic caused movie theatres to close earlier this year. Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor (\u201cBrooklyn-Nine Nine,\u201d \u201cParks and Recreation\u201d) wrote the screenplay for \u201cLegally Blonde 3.\u201d A director has not been set yet, nor have additional cast members. Plot details have also been kept under wraps. \u201cLegally Blonde\u201d originally debuted in 2001 and became a huge hit, earning $141 million at the box office. The comedy centres on Elle Woods, a sorority girl president who gets a law degree from Harvard to win back her ex-boyfriend. The cast also featured Luke Wilson, Selma Blair and Jennifer Coolidge. A sequel, \u201cLegally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde\u201d was released in 2013 and followed Elle to Washington D.C. as she fights to pass a law called Bruiser\u2019s Bill, an effort to stop make-up testing on animals. Though the follow-up was saddled with negative reviews, that didn\u2019t affect ticket sales. It grossed nearly $125 million globally. The first movie later inspired a Tony-nominated musical \u2014 starring Laura Bell Bundy as Elle Woods \u2014 that ran on Broadway for a year. Witherspoon will also produce \u201cLegally Blonde 3\u201d though her company, Hello Sunshine. Marc Platt, who produced the first two films, is returning for the third.
