For Reese Witherspoon, maverick is a true source of inspiration for Blonde’s Revenge 3 (Legally Blond, in VO). Indeed, the actress is preparing to put on the heels of Elle Woods for a third film, almost 20 years later. A Blonde’s Revenge (2001) and The Blonde Strikes Back (2003).
“I still hope that Blonde’s Revenge 3 going to be done the right way. It’s just like Top Gun : They waited a long time to make another version of this film and I liked the nostalgic aspect that they incorporated into it,” the star told USA Today.

“I feel like my characters are my friends, so I protect them. I will never do a mediocre sub-version of their story,” Reese Witherspoon continued.
If we can only hope that this third opus is a success, the project has already experienced some pitfalls. First announced in 2018 for release in 2020, Blonde’s Revenge 3 was eventually pushed back to have the script reviewed and corrected by Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor. Its release is now announced for 2023.
