You might well have missed it (though hopefully its Criterion release helped you catch up), but gay love story "Weekend" was one of the best films of 2011. So we're cracking open the champagne at the news that its director, Andrew Haigh, is heading to HBO, as the cable network has picked up a new show to series directed and executive produced by the helmer. Written by Michael Lannan (the short film "Lorimer"), it's about a trio of young gay man in San Francisco (led by "Glee" star Jonathan Groff), and their lives and loves. A sort of gay, West Coast version of "Girls," then? Sounds good to us.

We're literally about to head out the door to the BFI London Film Festival press screening of "Weekend," the second feature by British director Andrew Haigh, and we're firmly looking forward to it; ever since its premiere at SXSW earlier in the year, the indie gay romance has picked up glowing reviews, including ours, and has been doing quite nicely at the U.S. box office since it opened a few weeks back. It's definitely launched Haigh, a former assistant editor who worked on the likes of "Gladiator" and "Black Hawk Down", into the consciousness of film fans, and coincidentally, this morning brings news of his next project.
