LEGALLY BLONDE Writers to Re-Open THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS

Screenwriters Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith, have been tapped by Universal to pen a modern-day version of the 1982 musical The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.  The 1982 version (based off the 1978 Broadway play of the same name) starred Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton as a town sheriff and madame who team up to stop a crusading TV personality from shutting down the local whorehouse.  According to Variety, the new version will include musical numbers, but Universal isn’t saying whether or not the remake will incorporate songs from the previous film.

Lutz and Smith have built a reputation for writing female driven comedies such as Legally Blonde, She’s the Man, The House Bunny, and The Ugly Truth.  They also wrote the adaptation of Janet Evanovich’s One for the Money, which, as we reported earlier this week, will star Katherine Heigl.
