The 2001 comedy “Legally Blonde” features perhaps Reese Witherspoon`s most iconic and memorable performance as legal genius Elle Woods, who returned in 2003 alongside co-stars Jennifer Coolidge and Luke Wilson for the sequel “Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde.” But hardcore “Blonde” fans will also remember a character from the original movie who isn`t even mentioned in the sequel. It would be Vivian (Selma Blair), the fiancée of Elle`s ex-boyfriend, Warner (Matthew Davis), who eventually breaks up with Warner and befriends Elle. The “Mean Baby” author remembers dying his hair for the other alternate ending, with Elle and Vivian both being blonde: “There was an ending where Vivian was blonde, and I became blonde,” Blair shared. “I have the Polaroids. I looked exactly like Faye Dunaway in `Bonnie and Clyde`. The beret was on and the blonde. Screenwriters Karen McCullah and Kristen Smith also noticed other endings, including one in which Elle and Vivian, who is now also blonde, founded the Blonde Legal Defense Club and distributed flyers at Harvard Law School Quad. Another option was to end with a kiss between Elle and Emmett (Luke Wilson), but eventually the current degree was decided with Elle giving the law school graduation speech. However, she told Entertainment Tonight in 2015 that she turned down the role because she wasn`t sure she wanted to play another stereotypical blonde character like her role in Fox`s “Married With Children.” Believe it or not, there was another alternate ending for Legally Blonde that we haven`t seen either. Co-writer Karen McCullah told Entertainment Weekly in 2018 that the film “ended up right after the courthouse trial. Everyone congratulated Elle, and Emmett came up to her and gave her a big kiss. Then there was a label where it was a year in the future and she and Vivian, who was blonde now, had started the Blonde Legal Defense Fund and they were in the quad and handing out brochures.

Next. The ball is already on for a third film, following the success of the original 2001 film Legally Blonde and its sequel Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde, released two years later in 2003. Maybe Warner (Matthew Davis, star of The Vampire Diaries) is a changed man these days, or maybe he still needs Elle to put him back in his place?

During the Shut Up Evan podcast (opens in a new tab), Selma Blair shared her interest in returning to Legally Blonde for the upcoming sequel. Whether it`s an appearance or a bigger role in comedy, Blair calls Vivian one of the “good things in life” she likes to remember and that will stay for a while. The original 2001 film is a favorite among many and is so iconic that it became a musical, along with many other things in pop culture like the “Bend and Snap.” Legal films are often serious business. Even John Grisham`s adaptations are thrillers and full of catchy monologues. Legal Blonde is the opposite of that. He brings the legal film out of the shadows and highlights it, with pink accents for some frills.
A favorite movie of many, there aren`t many movies like Legally Blonde. We`ve compiled 20 facts you may not know about this movie. What, how difficult is it? Chris Morgan is a sports and pop culture author and author of The Comic Galaxy of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and The Ash Heap of History. You can @ChrisXMorgan follow him on Twitter. Oh, Warner, Warner, Warner. He wanted a Jackie, not Marilyn, but he had no idea he would end up being burned by both. We were all happy that he finally had his comeuppance – when She realized he was a “complete bone head” who didn`t deserve it and his perfect girlfriend Vivian left him – wouldn`t it be great to see what he`s doing now? Still after Her, no doubt about it. In 2018, Witherspoon agreed to produce and star in a third Legally Blonde film. McCullah Lutz and Smith were hired again to write the script, with plans for a 2020 release.
Then the COVID-19 pandemic shattered those plans. Although there are still plans for a third film, Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor have been hired to write a script from scratch. The film is expected to hit theaters in 2023. She said, “It really bothers me. Imagine a sick person in Wisconsin smelling seams. It makes me crawl. It`s all in the closet. One day, my daughter will be able to play with it. She said it was also difficult to understand how She put so much “care and energy” into things. Ali Larter, best known for Varsity Blues or Heroes, was invited to play one of Elle`s sisters. Then she read the script and desperately wanted the role of Brooke Taylor-Windham, the fitness trainer on trial for murder. Apparently, everyone was on board, because that`s the role she played in the end.
“Thank you, this really touches my heart,” Witherspoon said. She told Entertainment Weekly in 2001 that she spent time with real members of the sorority to prepare for the role. Regardless, Blair is an avid fan of “Legally Blonde” and calls the original film “one of the good things in life. It`s a highlight. Hopefully, for “Legally Blonde” fans eager to see what happened between Elle and Vivian after the events of the first film, as well as Blair himself, it`s not too late to include such a cameo or perhaps a bigger role in the plot of “Legally Blonde 3.” When Brown`s book was adapted, screenwriters Kirsten Smith and Karen McCullah Lutz were hired to take over the script. To do some research, the duo went to Stanford to spend two days on campus to get the atmosphere needed to write the script. A chance to walk a mile in Brown`s heels, you might say. “I don`t know when we`ll be able to make movies again, but it would be great if Reese liked the script,” she said. “Filming this year would be great.” Very cute, but I`ve been to Rutgers, and I know no one revolts that loudly unless the bars threaten to stop $2 on Tuesday. Or worse, they threaten with a map.
“There were some differences in the manuscript,” McCullah told the NYT. “It wasn`t a murder trial, and it ended with a teacher, so we made some changes. It was a question of refining the details and adding some characters, like Paulette and her friendship. “She said, `That`s so cute! OK, let`s work on the stage,” he said. A few months ago, Luke Wilson was asked the same question about whether he would be coming back, and he shared that he didn`t know much about it either. Legal Blonde 3 seems to be still in development, as Mindy Kaling, Dan Goor and Reese Witherspoon may be juggling all their other projects as well. Now that “Legally Blonde 3” is supposed to be on its way, fans of the franchise would rightly wonder if the delayed third installment of the franchise will show Vivian`s return to our screens. It turns out that Selma Blair herself has ideas about the prospect of Vivian`s return in “Legally Blonde 3,” as she recently shared on a podcast.
Selma Blair recently appeared on “Shut Up Evan,” a podcast hosted by writer Evan Ross Katz.
