We have previously reported two years ago that Legally Blonde 3 will happen and then it seemed like the story died. I’ve now received information that Mindy Kaling is joining the creative team of “Legally Blonde 3.”
The actress and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” co-creator Dan Goor have signed on to write the upcoming movie.
When we first released details of the movie two years ago, two other writers were working on it and evidently that did not go well with the studios. The attempt fell short so Kaling and Goor have been tapped to write an entirely new one. Reese Witherspoon will be back as Elle Woods.
