The Hills: It's a Sweet Deal for Conrad's 'Candy'

Even though LC's out of The Hills, there's still plenty of her to go around. We've all heard of her bestselling novel LA Candy, and we know how she plans to turn it into a film. Well, the thought that it might be the next Twilight is getting more support thanks to recent events. I guess it's another reason for me to stay away from it.

Moving on, Variety reports that Temple Hill Entertainment has already bought the rights to Lauren Conrad's debut novel. The company's partners Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey of Twilight fame are all geared up to produce. The reality TV star will certainly be involved, as she'll take on the role of executive producer through her Blue Eyed Girl Prods. banner.

"Lauren, who became an icon in that reality show world, came to us with a structure of how to tell the story in an interesting fashion that was separate and apart from the book," Bowen explained.

He went on to sing the praises of LA Candy, which is based on Lauren Conrad's experiences with Laguna Beach and The Hills. It follows the exploits of a 19-year-old girl named Jane Roberts who moves to Hollywood and ends up starring in a reality television show.

"We loved her take. Her book is an honest portrayal of what it must be like to set out to be normal, then sign on to become famous and eventually realize, wow, this isn't at all what I'd planned for myself."

They're all currently busy looking for a writer to pen the script, and that'll come before they search for a studio/financier. Lauren Conrad will certainly be helping out with the script, even though she's busy writing two more books as sequels to LA Candy.

Just like Twilight, it has been on the New York Times Bestseller list for weeks. Sans vampires, LC's tome already has its share of creepy creatures, like those bitches forever sharpening their claws. It's based on reality TV teenage drama, so what else can we expect? I can't even begin to imagine who she'll cast as the star of the movie.
