Top Gun: Maverick, which received rave reviews, proved that there is a real appetite for successful legacy sequels, and some of Hollywood's most well-known actresses have begun researching how to incorporate the same magic into their own films. It's difficult to say no to that, but Reese Witherspoon is willing to try.
Witherspoon gave an update on Legally Blonde 3 in a new interview with USA Today, and expressed her hope that the long-awaited sequel will find the same consistency of nostalgia and fresh faces that made Maverick so successful.
Legally Blonde 3 is still hoped to be a success, according to the actress. Its like Top Gun: They waited a long time to realize that it was a great film, and I loved the nostalgia element they incorporated into it. So yes, that gave us a lot of inspiration about what we want to do with Elle Woods, even if it wasn't for her.
She stated that, like Cruise, she is extremely protective of Elle Woods and the franchise that made her a star. The lengthy wait for the sequel to come to an end is due to her extremely high expectations for the series.
I believe these characters are my friends, so I protect them, according to the author. I would never produce a substandard, mediocre version of their story.
Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor, co-creator of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, are writing the script for Legally Blonde 3. Kaling talked recently about her strategy in constructing the narrative and her desire to remain true to the original character while still allowing her to grow.
What is Elle Woods like at 42? Kaling asked. Does she end up becoming all she wanted? Does she become more cynical as a mature woman? How has life changed her perspective on things?
