Fans are getting a first look at Tom Hanks as Fred Rogers in an upcoming and not-yet-titled film by Sony Pictures. The studio posted a picture of the actor in full Mr. Rogers garb to Twitter, writing “Tom Hanks is Mister Rogers, coming to a neighborhood near you October 2019.” As you can tell from the tweet, the film is due for release next October. It will reportedly follow the story of a reporter who becomes quite close with Rogers while doing a profile of him for a magazine. Check it out below.
