US writer Mindy Kaling teases details about ‘Legally Blonde 3’

DUBAI: US writer Mindy Kaling has revealed details about the much-anticipated movie “Legally Blonde 3.” 

In an interview with Access Hollywood, the writer said she is currently working on the script with “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” creator Dan Goor. In the upcoming romantic comedy, the main character, Elle Woods, is 40 and still living life to the fullest. 

“I can’t wait to see what people will think of the way we wrote Elle Woods. We wrote Elle Woods at 40, so how Elle is at 40 versus how she was at 21 has been really fun to imagine,” Kaling teased.

“I love the franchise so much,” the comedian added. “I love Elle Woods as a character and when Reese (Witherspoon) asked me to write it, I was like, ‘Absolutely!’” 

Kaling, however, does not know when the team will be able to shoot the movie.

What We Are Reading Today: Mediocre by Ijeoma Oluo

From the author of the New York Times bestseller So You Want to Talk About Race, a history of white male America and a scathing indictment of what it has cost us.
After the election of Donald Trump, and the escalation of white male rage and increased hostility toward immigrants that came with him, New York Times-bestselling author Ijeoma Oluo found herself in conversation with Americans around the country, pondering one central question: How did we get here?
Oluo answers that question by pinpointing white men’s deliberate efforts to subvert women, people of color, and the disenfranchised. Through research and interviews, Oluo investigates the backstory of America’s growth, from immigrant migration to our national ethos around ingenuity, from the shaping of economic policy to the protection of sociopolitical movements that fortify male power. In the end, she shows how white men have long maintained a stranglehold on leadership and sorely undermined the pursuit of happiness for all, according to a review at goodreads.com.
