Over the last number of years Witherspoon had expressed her interest in a potential return to Legally Blonde saying, "A lot of people have asked me if we're going to make another Legally Blonde, and we're thinking about it".

"It's true... #LegallyBlonde3", Witherspoon, 42, shared on Instagram, paying homage to a scene in the original film by floating on a pool raft.

Deadline broke the news exclusively on Monday that Reese Witherspoon is returning for Legally Blonde 3, and today MGM revealed that the threequel will open on February 14, 2020. The company has previously worked on projects including Gone Girl and Witherspoon's HBO show Big Little Lies. In the film, a young Elle Woods attends Harvard in an attempt to win back her former lover that dumped her due to her low aspirations. According to Deadline, numerous original players are coming back on board: writers Kirsten "Kiwi" Smith and Karen McCullah will be joined by producers Marc Platt and Adam Siegel, with Witherspoon also involved in production.

The previous films also starred Luke Wilson, Selma Blair and Jennifer Coolidge.
