Kristin Cavallari and Avril Lavigne to Star in Lost Summer?

While it wouldn’t be my first choice in terms of casting, it looks like Avril Lavigne and Kristin Cavallari might be making a movie together, for none other than MTV Films. In this exclusive report (thanks to our anonymous tipster), we hear that there is a lot of buzz inside the MTV offices about Avril and Kristin playing friends in the movie based on Alex McAulay’s novel, Lost Summer.

I believe that Avril Lavigne is going to be starring with Kristin Cavallari as two friends who witness a murder in a film for MTV Films based on Alex McAulay’s new novel, Lost Summer. It is not a done deal, but there is some serious buzz building over here about it. The MTV execs seem really invested in making Avril a movie star, and feel that Kristin owes them (our guess around here is that Avril is way more into this project than Kristin).

But after doing what little research I could bother to do, it seems like this might be the perfect casting after all. According to Alex McAulay’s website, the book is summed up as follows:

It’s Laguna Beach meets Cape Fear when a rich girl from California confronts murder and isolation on North Carolina’s stormy Outer Banks.

Now, if that’s not type-casting, I don’t know what is. A movie from MTV, based on a book from MTV, starring a rich girl from California who was on MTV. Now that’s what I call corporate synergy. Too bad neither of them can act.
