It has been around seventeen years since the charmingly idealistic Elle Woods made way into our hearts with her moment of self-discovery in 2001's hit Legally Blonde. And it looks like the Harward Law School graduate will be tracing her way back to the big screen for yet another instalment of the courtroom dramedy.

In fact, if latest reports are to be believed, work is already in progress and MGM is said to be close to finalizing a deal with actress Reese Witherspoon who brought the no-nonsense character of Elle to life twice, the second time in the 2003 sequel Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde.

Besides starring in the lead role, the 42-year-old actress would also be joining Marc Platt and Adam Siegel (Platt Productions president) on the production side through her own banner Hello Sunshine.

As one would imagine, the next step in making the Legally Blonde 3 dream come true would be to secure the writers. If all goes well, chances are that original scripting duo, Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith and Karen McCullah — who were responsible for adapting the Amanda Brown's novel for 2001's first 'Legally Blonde' film — might reprise their writing duties. 

While it has been over a decade since the first two Legally Blonde movies, the anticipation surrounding the Elle Woods saga has hardly died. If anything, thanks to the Internet and DVDs, Witherspoon's iconic role following the antics of a sorority princess and her quest through Harvard, has stayed fresh in fans' hearts.

Now, with the third installment in progress, indeed all eyes will be on the actress and how she recreates the magic in a timely and relevant manner. 

The studios, however, are yet to secure a director for the third Legally Blonde movie.
