Screenwriter and producer Mindy Kaling just dropped some hints about a third "Legally Blonde" film.
Kaling, who is co-writing the film's script with "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" co-creator Dan Goor, told Entertainment Tonight, "I love this project. I am so excited about it."
"It is going, you know, a little more slowly than we like, but [it's] just because we really want it to be good," she added.
The former "Office" star said of Reese Witherspoon's film series, "I think of it like Reese's 'Avengers.' Elle Woods is like her Captain America, and so you don't want to be the person that messes up that story. So for me, we are just taking our time because we want it to be really good."

In a Zoom interview with Backstage and her "Legally Blonde" co-star Jennifer Coolidge last December, Witherspoon said of "Legally Blonde"'s longevity, "The movie is such a feminist movie," adding, "Your life doesn't have to be defined by your romantic relationships; it can be defined by your girlfriends, by your sense of self-worth, by your job, your education, your accomplishments."
Kaling announced her involvement in the project in May 2020.
"Elle Woods is so iconic, proving you can be girly and smart at the same time. Bend and snap people!" she wrote in a post announcing she is co-writing.
Witherspoon first confirmed the film was being made back in 2018.
