Actress Reese Witherspoon confirmed Thursday morning that the “Legally Blonde” franchise is getting a third film.
Rumors swirled last week that Witherspoon was in talks to reprise her starring role as sorority girl-turned-attorney Elle Woods for “Legally Blonde 3.”
“It’s true,” she said Thursday morning in a tweet.
The announcement came with a short video of Witherspoon wearing a sparkly pink bikini and floating in a pool. “Legally Blonde” fans might recognize the bikini from the first film in the franchise.
“Legally Blonde” premiered in America in July 2001. Based on a novel of the same name by Amanda Brown, the film was a critical success. It was followed in 2003 by “Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde.” A musical based on both the book and the 2001 film premiered on Broadway in 2007.
