‘Legally Blonde 3’ pushed to 2022
Looks like we will have to wait a little longer before we see Elle Woods back on the big screen.
In this case, 2022.
MGM picture recently announced on their Twitter account that the much-awaited next installment of the beloved movie franchise is indeed happening – although at a much later date for fans.
The franchise was so popular that there was a Broadway adaptation of the movie made and opened on the Great White Way in 2007 with music by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin with the book by Heather Hach. It was a Tony-award nominee that year but won Oustanding Broadway Chorus as voted on by the Actor’s Equity Association.
The North American Touring production as well as The Original West End production fared better for the latter in 2011 and won a Laurence Olivier Award for Best Musical, Best Actress and Best Performance in a Supporting Role, while the former won Best New Touring Musical, Best Design of a Touring Production and Best Choreography of a Touring Production in 2009.
