Lauren Conrad has already made the leap from the small screen to the world of literature, but is the former “Hills” star and author of the best-selling novel “L.A. Candy” now looking to make the leap to the big screen?
Well, sort of. Conrad recently revealed to the Daily News that she is interested in adapting her novel to the big screen.
“We’re hoping for a movie deal,” Conrad said. “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. We have had a lot of exciting news in that respect, though.”
As for who she’d like to see tackle the role of the book’s protagonist, Jane Roberts, she hasn’t really given that part much thought yet. But People is reporting that Conrad has no plans to act in the film.
“Lauren’s goal is to get into producing — it always was,” a source told the magazine. “It was always to make ’L.A. Candy’ into a film or TV show. She’s been in talks about it.”
The source added that “no deal [is] in place just yet,” but the film is “her ultimate goal.”
“She would never star in it because she doesn’t want to be an actress,” the source said. “She spent so long on TV. … [She] would love to produce.”
At press time, Conrad’s reps did not return MTV News’ requests for comment about the reports.
