Twilight Producers Sink Teeth Into Conrad's L.a. Candy
Hollywood producers are sinking their teeth into reality TV star Lauren Conrad's bestselling book L.A. Candy - screen rights have been purchased by the brains behind vampire franchise TWILIGHT.
The former Hills star released her debut novel in June (09) and has since topped the New York Times Best Seller list for Children's Chapter Books.
The 23 year old admitted in July (09) she hoped to make a movie out of the hit semi-autobiographical novel - about a teen girl who moves to Los Angeles and lands her own reality TV show.
And now Conrad is celebrating a successful pitch to producers at Temple Hill Entertainment.
A company spokesperson says, "Lauren came to us with a structure of how to tell the story in an interesting fashion that was separate and apart from the book. 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 realise, 'Wow, this isn't at all what I'd planned for myself'."
