There has been quite a bit of hype around the iconic Fred Rogers of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood fame. Tom Hanks is set to play in an upcoming biopic You Are My Friend. The film is set to start filming this fall, directed by Marielle Heller, who states:
“[This] movie is…. not a biopic... I disliked that when it got announced it was characterized as such.... It’s a movie that’s largely focused on a reporter and [Mr. Rogers’] relationship to his life, and how [the reporter’s] whole world changes when coming in contact with Fred Rogers.”
