He argues that he needs a more serious woman in order to fulfill his political aspirations, which include attending Harvard Law.
Encouraged by her sorority sisters, Elle decides to also enroll in Harvard Law in order to win Warner back.
In addition to reprising her role as Elle Woods, Witherspoon is bringing back both Karen Mc Cullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith to pen the film's script.
Elle Woods, a pretty, rich and popular fashion merchandising student and president of her Delta Nu sorority, is crushed when her boyfriend Warner Huntington III breaks up with her over a romantic dinner rather than proposing to her, as she was expecting.
Legally Blonde is a 2001 American comedy film based on the novel of the same name by Amanda Brown.
It was directed by Robert Luketic, scripted by Karen Mc Cullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith, and stars Reese Witherspoon, Luke Wilson, Selma Blair, Matthew Davis, Victor Garber, and Jennifer Coolidge.
As of June 2018, Witherspoon has been in discussions with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer to produce a third instalment in the Legally Blonde film series.
Recognizing her as a personal role model and former Delta Nu member, Elle manages to discover the alibi but keeps it secret due to a personal promise with Brooke, which impresses Vivian and leads to the two women beginning to bond after it was revealed that she was keeping the alibi confidential and that Warner blatantly said to sell out her friend for benefits; during their alone time, Vivian revealing to Elle that Warner only got into Harvard via a call from his father (a distinguished alumni) to the school board, because he was on the waiting list.
During the trial Elle manages to find holes in the prosecution's case such as proving that the prosecution's main witness was lying/perjuring about having an affair with Brooke, pointing out that he is gay.
Chutney is then arrested for murder, with all charges against Brooke dismissed.
After the trial Warner unsuccessfully tries to persuade Elle to take him back, only for her to mock him by stating that he is not serious enough for her.
