Hilary Duff Wants Her Novels to Be Turned Into Movies (Video)
"It's a huge dream of mine," says the actress-singer-author, who released Devoted, the sequel to her best-seller Elixir, on Tuesday.
Hilary Duff on Tuesday released the sequel to her best-selling novel Elixir, and she has high hopes for the two books.
The actress-singer wants to see Elixir and its follow-up, Devoted -- a supernatural-themed love story about a 17-year-old photographer named Clea Raymond -- turned into movies.
"I would love to," she told MTV News. "I mean, it’s a huge dream of mine, and just from my past and where I came from I’m used to working on movies and reading scripts and that’s just where my head goes instantly when I’m writing. I made this book very visual, the dream sequences and the flash backs are very romantic. I could just see doing really cool things to the film with wardrobe and all this stuff that my mind goes to."
Duff -- who recently revealed she is expecting her first child with NHL-player husband Mike Comrie -- added that there has been some interest, but she hasn't find the right partner yet.
"I think it’d be really cool, but I have a lot going on," she said. "There have been a few people interested in buying the rights which is very flattering, but if the right person came along, I’d definitely hope that would happen."
While Duff said she can envision so many elements of how a movie based on Elixir would look, she doesn't have anyone specific in mind for the lead role -- but she insists she isn't right for the part. She does, however, think she could play the part of Sloan, a "badass, grungy greasy girl" who is part of a "group that's against Clea, but she's fighting for a cause that is for her people. She has a little bit of a heart, but she's kinda cutthroat."
