House executive producer Katie Jacobs has signed on to direct an adaptation of Kevin Michael Connolly’s memoir Double Take for Michael London’s Groundswell Productions. Per Deadline, Groundswell is currently shopping the project to potential writers. Connolly is a photographer and former champion skier and skateboarder who has had his work exhibited at the Smithsonian. Making these accomplishments all the more impressive is the fact that he was born without legs. In addition to Double Take, Jacobs is also attached to direct an adaptation of Sheila Weller’s 2008 singer-songwriter novel Girls Like Us which is being adapted by John Sayles (Lone Star).
