"I don't know!" admitted the star who first appeared in the original romance comedy in 2001 as main character, Elle Woods, a sorority girl who follows her ex-boyfriend to law school, and ends up pursuing a career in law herself.

I'll be honest. After seeing and loving the first Legally Blonde film back in the day, I never saw Legally Blonde 2: Red, White, and Blonde.

Reese Witherspoon is in talks to return as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde 3, 17 years after the original movie.

Deadline is reporting that the details are coming together quickly and they're putting together the film's original team to work on the third film.

Writing is set to begin immediately and the next step will be to hire a director.

With that in mind, one can only hope that this next film will show Elle Woods as the first female president of the United States, but only time will tell!

"She could be anything", she added. "And I think it'd be kind of a cool thing to have her be a Supreme Court justice or someone who runs for office". This success lead to the 2003 sequel Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde being made, directed by Charles Herman-Wurmfeld from a script by Kate Kondell, didn't fare quite as well, earning $90.1 million domestic and $124.9 million worldwide, from a $45 million budget.

The plot is now being kept under wraps, but will focus on "female empowerment".

"It's a great privilege to be a woman in America", she said. I try to live that to its utmost, particularly the freedom of speech, being able to express myself, create shows like this to show how important women are in our world.
