If you pair Lauren Conrad with the producers behind the “Twilight” flicks , then you’ll most likely have a hit film on your hands. So when Conrad decided to work with the executive producers of the vampire series, Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey, she knew that she had found the perfect situation to turn her novel, “L.A. Candy,” into a film.
“I mean, you can’t do much better, right?” she remarked to MTV News at the launch of her Kohl’s LC Lauren Conrad clothing line.
She went on to explain that the book was never meant to be a movie. Instead, Conrad had envisioned it as a TV show. As you know, the former [url id=”/shows/the_hills/season_5/series.jhtml”]”Hills”[/url] star knows a thing or two about TV. “Originally, when people started talking to me about turning the books into television, I was really excited,” she explained. “Then we got approached about the movie and I wasn’t really sure it would work. The story is supposed to take place over a couple of years and it’s hard to do with a movie.”
With doubts of a movie deal in her mind, she went on the book tour, and that’s when inspiration hit her. “I was sitting in a room and then it just came to me,” she explained about why she finally decided to turn it into a film. “I came up with a format that worked and discussed it with them. They really liked it.”
