The Tom Hank’s Mr. Rogers Film Gets A Title

Per Talkin4Reel:

Sony Pictures has titled its new film about beloved TV personality Fred Rogers, and it fits like your favorite cardigan.

Tom Hanks stars in the previously untitled movie, now named “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.” It was directed by Marielle Heller and will hit theaters in fall 2019. The cast also includes Matthew Rhys, Chris Cooper, Tammy Blanchard, and Sakina Jaffrey.

The film is inspired by a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers, star of the long-running “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood,” and award-winning journalist Tom Junod. It tells of a cynical journalist who begrudgingly accepts an assignment to write a profile piece on the beloved icon and finds his perspective on life transformed.
