Two-time Oscar®-winner Tom Hanks is Mister Rogers in TriStar Pictures’ Untitled Mr. Rogers / Tom Hanks Project, coming to a neighborhood near you October 2019!
The film is a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and 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.
