Originally published on June 4: Brace yourselves: Elle Woods is coming back to the big screen. As Deadline reports, the famously pink-clad lawyer will be revived 17 years after her memorable debut thanks to Reese Witherspoon, who is "near a deal" with MGM Studios for a Legally Blonde 3.

Deadline reports that in addition to Witherspoon, the same writers and producers of the 2001 film are already on board for the third installment. "The intention here is to make this more about female empowerment, a message that hits at a fortuitous time in the culture," Deadline writes of the third movie. "The feeling is to draw back in the audience that grew up with the original film and find a new global audience." Stay tuned as we learn more about the exciting news.
