Tom Hanks is already an iconic actor, but he will soon be taking on the role of another television icon when he portrays Fred Rogers, the star of the long-running children’s show “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.”

“You Are My Friend” will be inspired by the heart-warming story of the real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and award-winning journalist Tom Junod.

Marielle Heller (Diary of a Teenage Girl) will direct “You Are My Friend.” There is currently no release date set for the project.
