Check out a first look image of Two-time Oscar®-winner Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers in an upcoming film about his real-life friendship with journalist Tom Junod.

After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor. The untitled project also includes This is Us actress Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Cooper.

The film is written by Noah Harpster and Micah Fitzerman-Blue and is directed by Marielle Heller. It arrives in theaters October 2019.
