HBO's gay drama 'Looking' will make the leap to the big screen and close the San Francisco Frameline Film Festival.

Written by Andrew Haigh and Michael Lannan, and directed by Haigh also, Looking: The Movie will "see Patrick (Groff) return to San Francisco for the first time in almost a year to celebrate a momentous event with his old friends," reports Variety. "In the process, he must face the unresolved relationships he left behind and make difficult choices about what’s important to him."

Alvarez told Vulture last year that the film will provide the closure fans want, saying: "We’ll get to close it out the way everyone wants to close it out."
