“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”
Sony Pictures has posted the first image of Tom Hanks as Mister Rogers and he looks almost identical to the icon.
Hanks will portray Fred Rogers who famously was the host of the longtime children show, ‘Mister Rogers’ Neighbourhood.
The untitled movie is due out in October 2019. It will focus on the relationship between Rogers and journalist Tom Junod, who documented the actor in the 90’s.
