Julia Roberts’ production company Red Om Films has acquired screen rights to In the Neighborhood, a nonfiction book by Peter Lovenheim to be published next April by Perigee, reports Variety.
“Neighborhood” starts with Lovenheim’s realization of a lack of community in his suburban hometown. In an effort to get to know his neighbors better, he asks if he can come to their homes for sleepovers. His goal: to facilitate something more than the feeling of strangers living with strangers in modern suburbia.
The film marks the fifth project Red Om has set up through its first-look deal with Reliance Big Entertainment. To read about the other four projects, click here.
