Mike Birbiglia Directing Keegan-Michael Key, Gillian Jacobs in ‘Don’t Think Twice’

Mike Birbiglia’s show-business dramedy “Don’t Think Twice” has started production in New York City with Keegan-Michael Key, Gillian Jacobs, Kate Micucci, Tami Sagher and Chris Gethard starring.

“Don’t Think Twice” is financed by Cold Iron Pictures and the Film Arcade. Producers are Birbiglia, Cold Iron Pictures’ Miranda Bailey and Amanda Marshall. Executive producers are Ira Glass and the Film Arcade’s J. Beck and Andy Bohn.

Birbiglia will also appear in the film and is directing from his own script, in which an improv group loses the lease on their home theater at the same time that one of their cast members gets chosen for the biggest sketch comedy show on TV — leading to bitterness and backstabbing between friends when they realize that maybe not everyone’s gonna make it after all.

Birbiglia’s acting credits include “Girls,” “Orange Is the New Black,” “Trainwreck” and “The Fault in Our Stars” and his film “Sleepwalk With Me,” which won the Best of Next Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012; his solo performance of “My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend” Off Broadway won the Lucille Lortel Award.

UTA Independent Film Group negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers with the Film Arcade, which was represented by attorney Greg S. Bernstein.

Birbiglia is repped by UTA. Key is repped by UTA and Principato-Young Entertainment. Jacobs is repped by UTA and Authentic Talent. Micucci is repped by WME and Principato-Young Entertainment. Sagher is repped by UTA and Thruline. Gethard is repped by APA and AGI Entertainment Media & Management.
