Lauren Conrad's move from The Hills is certainly doing her a lot of good. The star of the reality series ventured out to write her own book, LA Candy, which landed a spot on the New York Times' bestseller list. That dose of fame apparently wasn't enough though.
Conrad surely has big plans for LA Candy, and is hoping that it will hit the big screen soon. According to People, the actress might just opt to work behind the scenes this time. She has no intention to star in her movie, but she'll certainly be the producer.
"Lauren's goal is to get into producing - it always was," a source told the publication. "It was always to make L.A. Candy into a film or TV show. She's been in talks about it."
The insider also added that there haven't been any deals made between Lauren Conrad and any movie executives, but "that's her ultimate goal."
On an interview with New York Daily News, the star of the MTV series revealed that she's still thinking things through. "I'm working on [adapting the book for the movies] right now, but I don't want to commit to anything until I see all my options," she confessed. "We have had a lot of exciting news in that respect, though."
While she's busy handling the camera for the upcoming project, Conrad admits that she hasn't exactly considered who she'll shoot. The part of LA Candy protagonist Jane Roberts has yet to be filled. "I haven't even thought about it," the celebrity said.
"She would never star in it because she doesn't want to be an actress," the source added. "She spent so long on TV, [she] would love to produce."
Lauren Conrad might be pushing hard for a movie deal, but her status as an author remains stable. She's practically done with her second book, the sequel to LA Candy.
"I actually finished the first draft - I'm doing edits right now," the Hills star revealed. "It picks up where the first left off. I signed a three-book deal, so this is all part of the same story. The second book will be more dramatic than the first. It's a relief, because I didn't have to worry about character introductions."
