Will Elle Woods return to the big screen soon? Reese Witherspoon came out on television this week and, naturally, conversation shifted to whether she will reprise the role of the sorority girl-turned-lawyer in the near future. The 40-year-old was eager to make more Legally Blonde movies and she has some ideas for a third installment.
Elle Woods in Prison?
It has been 14 years since Elle Woods journeyed to Washington D.C. in Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde. There was a spin-off starring Elle Wood’s cousins Annie and Izzy called Legally Blondes, but it did not exactly capture the magic of the original 2001 movie. After that, no one exactly knew what happened to Elle Woods. And no one is more curious to know than Witherspoon herself.
During an interview on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Witherspoon talked about what Legally Blonde 3 could be about. There is a lot that could have happened during those fifteen years and the actress imagined what the iconic character might be doing now.
“I think it would be cool to see her 15 years later,” she told Corden and fellow guest Tony Goldwyn. “Like, what’s she doing now?” Witherspoon suggested that, maybe, Elle Woods is Supreme Court Justice now. Considering her ability to talk her way into anything, it is definitely possible that she now holds a powerful position.
However, Witherspoon also offered a fate that is much more grim. The actress also mused that, perhaps, Elle Woods might have been involved in something illegal and was sent to jail It will definitely be interesting to watch the character behind bars.
Corden also suggested that Elle Woods can even be President of the United States. The point is, after 15 years of absence, there are plenty of possible stories if the character does return to the big screen with Legally Blonde 3.
Witherspoon’s Next Projects
The actress is willing to return to the role. However, her schedule seems very busy in the present. Witherspoon is currently starring in HBO’s Little Big Lies, a suburban drama about three women who have dark secrets. She co-stars with Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman and Divergent actress Shailene Woodley.
The award-winning actress is also currently working on the big screen adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time. In addition, she is also set to star in Disney’s Tinker Bell. Her IMDB also lists Home Again and Wish List as her next projects.
