When Red Om, the production company headed by Julia Roberts, needed to scrounge up some loot for a vast array of upcoming projects, the actress looked to a seemingly unlikely place: India.

According to Variety, the company just bought screen rights to the upcoming non-fiction book 'In the Neighborhood,' a deal made with India-based Reliance Big Entertainment that stands as the fifth project in development between the two companies. Reliance Big has augmented the major studios' buying power with its hope to grow 30 films it can co-finance with studios.
