Red Om Films has acquired screen rights to Peter Lovenheim’s non-fiction tome “In the Neighborhood” reports Variety.
The story 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.
Julia Roberts is expected to produce in some capacity.
