Writers of the first film, Kirsten "Kiwi" Smith and Karen McCullah, are in talks to write the new movie. No director is attached at this time, and there is no indication as to when production may begin, or if MGM is already eyeing a release date for this sequel. Robert Luketic helmed the original and Charles Herman-Wurmfeld directed the follow-up. The movies also continue to be major performers on DVD. The sequel grossed $124.9 million Dollars at the worldwide box office.
Legally Blonde debuted 17 years ago and told the story of Elle Woods, a fashionable sorority queen who is dumped by her boyfriend. The plot is now being kept under wraps, but will reportedly focus on "female empowerment". The minds behind the project are hoping to draw back the audience that fell in love with the original film as well as finding a new global audience that will embrace Elle Woods and the film's message. In any case, having Elle in that position would be a great way to get the character involved in certain current legal matters on a national scale.
Witherspoon is repped by CAA and LBI Entertainment; Smith is with Verve, Kaplan/Perrone and attorney Karl Austen; McCullah is with Jaret Entertainment.
