Hedges' The Heights just hit stores in March and centers around a Brooklyn couple and their children. Their seemingly perfect relationship is put to the test with "the arrival of alluring, wealthy new neighbors."
Focus president of production John Lyons stated in a press release announcing the acquisition: "I'm thrilled to be working with Peter again. He is a filmmaker of great warmth and humor, and with The Heights we will be taking full advantage of his considerable skills as both screenwriter and director."
There's no word yet on when Focus expects to start production on The Heights.
