Undoubtedly one of the busiest actors currently, Reese Witherspoon already has another project on her hands apart from being a part of multiple shows lately. As one would remember, the response to the 15th anniversary of her film, Legally Blonde was so strong back in 2016, that the makers decided to revive the franchise for another presentation.
"The response was so incredibly strong," Witherspoon recalls of a film that grossed $142 million and still has fans stopping her regularly to heap praise. "So, we discussed it and thought, maybe it's time to revisit."
Though they're still in the development stage of reviving the MGM property, both say that they're excited about seeing Elle Woods in her 40s — and, moreover, that her sense of hope and optimism could be exactly what the world needs right now.
"I want to discover what age means to that character," adds the actress. "Aging, contemporary ideas, how things have evolved — or not evolved."
Well, we certainly cannot wait to see Witherspoon become Elle Woods yet again.
