It has been almost a year now since we learned of our neighbor Mr. Rogers being immortalized on film and now along with the first image of Tom Hanks as Rogers, we learn Sony Pictures plans on a October 2019 release.
From what we know so far the film will follow the story of a reporter who develops an emotional bond with Rogers while profiling him for a magazine, according to director Marielle Heller, who spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the film earlier this year."Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" aired for 31 seasons over multiple decades until coming to an end in 2001. Rogers died in 2003. His life and legacy received renewed attention this year thanks to the critically-hailed documentary film by Morgan Neville, "Won't You Be My Neighbor?"
I. Can't. Wait.
