Bend, and snap!
Australian-based PlaySide Studios has announced a deal with Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios to develop a mobile game based on the classic Reese Witherspoon comedy Legally Blonde.
The game will be free-to-play on iOS and Android mobile devices across the globe.
The all-new game will combine puzzle and choice-based narrative mechanics with the “empowering themes and positive messages” of the Legally Blonde films, and allow players to live their very own Legally Blonde story.
News of the mobile game coincides with news of Mindy Kaling (The Offcie) and Dan Goor (The Daily Show) have signed on to co-write the script for Legally Blonde 3, which will see Reese Witherspoon reprise her role as Elle Woods in 2022.
PlaySide’s CEO, Gerry Sakkas said “This is a historic occasion for PlaySide. Since the Company was founded, I have always wanted to license a major Hollywood brand for the development of a mobile title. I couldn’t think of a better partner in MGM, an iconic Hollywood studio with a rich 90-year history of premier movie titles, it’s truly an exhilarating time for PlaySide.”
Robert Marick, Executive Vice President, MGM Global Consumer Products & Experiences, said, “Legally Blonde is one of those iconic and inspirational brands that continues to appeal to new generations of fans around the world. We are thrilled to partner with PlaySide Studios to bring these trailblazing films to mobile devices, and offer consumers a new way to interact with one of our most cherished characters, Elle Woods.”
