EXCLUSIVE: LD Entertainment has acquired the film rights to Sarah Rothschild’s family adventure script, The Sleepover, which featured on the 2017 Black List.

Rothschild is currently in development on 24-7, a comedy film at Universal with Kerry Washington and Eva Longoria starring. She’s repped by Verve and Myman Greenspan Fineman Fox Rosenberg & Light.
