Temple Hill Entertainment, one of the production companies behind Twilight, has acquired the movie rights to L.A. Candy, the “book” that was “written” by The Hills “star” Lauren Conrad. “Why, that’s the best news I’ve ever heard!” said Dr. Opposite.
Conrad will be exec producer through her Blue Eyed Girl Prods. banner. The book, published in June by HarperCollins, has been on the bestseller lists of the New York Times for 14 weeks. Informed by Conrad’s experiences, “L.A. Candy” tells the story of a 19-year-old who moves to Hollywood, quickly finds fame as a reality series star and then has to deal with the ramifications of living a fishbowl life. Conrad plans to write two more books [tentatively title 'Pestilence' and 'Locusts' -ed.] on the reality travails of protag Jane Roberts.
