Julia Roberts' Red Om Films has picked up screen rights to Peter Lovenheim's nonfiction book In the Neighborhood, which will be published next April by Perigee.

According to Variety, In the 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.

No production date has been announced.
