Reese is also known for her roles in other romantic movies like Sweet Home Alabama, Election, This Means War, Pleasantville, and Home Again.
For the unversed, this is not the first time that Reese will be collaborating with Mindy Kaling. The two divas co-starred in 2018’s A Wrinkle in Time. Mindy also took to her social media to confirm the collaboration with Reese. Confirming the news Mindy wrote, “Elle Woods is so iconic, proving you can be girly and smart at the same time. Bend and snap people!” Giving reference to one of the famous lines from the movie.
The fans have been waiting for the movie since it was first announced in 2018. At that time Reese said, “We’re definitely talking about it. I loved playing that character and she’s so amazing. I don’t know, if you guys want it then I guess I’ll do it!”
We hope that Legally Blonde 3 recreates the magic which the other two created on the big screen.
