Reese Witherspoon confirms 'Legally Blonde 3' in a bikini

Deadline broke the news exclusively on Monday that Reese Witherspoon is returning for Legally Blonde 3, and today MGM revealed that the threequel will open on February 14, 2020. "It's true... #LegallyBlonde3", wrote the actress on the post, which is a shot of her floating in a pool dressed in a bedazzled pink bikini.

Legally Blonde was the story of California sorority girl Elle who made a decision to follow her ex-boyfriend to Harvard Law after he breaks her heart.

The Oscar-winning actress floated along like no time had passed since "Legally Blonde" came out in 2001, and "Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde" in 2003.

Over the last number of years Witherspoon had expressed her interest in a potential return to Legally Blonde saying, "A lot of people have asked me if we're going to make another Legally Blonde, and we're thinking about it". The short, wordless video was accompanied by the caption, "It's true".

"I think it'd be kind of a cool thing to have her be a Supreme Court Justice or somebody who runs for office, like president", Witherspoon said during a podcast in 2015. But now, it is time to bend and snap once again because Legally Blonde 3 is happening. It also starred Sally Field and Regina King.

It doesn't get anymore official than when it comes from Reese Witherspoon herself.

The film would also return Marc Platt and his production company Platt Productions to the producer's chair on the film.

Reese Witherspoon took to social media to confirm "Legally Blonde 3" is in the works.
