Legally Blonde could be coming back to the big screen. Reese Witherspoon is near a deal to bring back the world’s pinkest lollipop lawyer Elle Woods after a 17 year-long hiatus for a third outing. The same writers and producers of the 2001 film are already reportedly on board. Sources said about the third film:

“The intention here is to make this more about female empowerment, a message that hits at a fortuitous time in the culture.”

When news of a potential Legally Blonde 3 hit the internet, it immediately became a top trending topic on Twitter.

Here are some of the social media reactions:

No director is currently attached to the project. MGM has tapped writers Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith and Karen McCullah for the script. McCullah wrote the adapted script for the original 2001 film.

Legally Blonde was a success for the studio MGM, grossing $141.8 million worldwide. The film followed a 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. “Legally Blonde” also starred Luke Wilson, Selma Blair, Matthew Davis, Victor Garber, Jennifer Coolidge and a Chihuahua named Bruiser.
