Lauren Conrad's LA Candy on screen

The former star of The Hills has set up her own production company, called Blue Eyed Girl Productions, and will be the executive producer on the movie.

Her book, about reality star Jane Roberts, has been on the bestseller list of The New York Times for 14 weeks, Variety reports.

LA Candy tells the story of a 19-year-old who moves to Hollywood and has to deal with being in the public eye after quickly finding fame in a reality series.

Lauren, who also starred in Laguna Beach, plans to write two more books about the same character.

A spokesman for Temple Hill Entertainment, which has the rights to make the film from the book, said: "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.

"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."

Lauren's film deal comes during the same week she launched a line of clothing that is being sold exclusively at Kohl's.
