The Tom Hanks Mr. Rogers Film Has A Title

Earlier in 2018, it was announced that Tom Hanks had been cast to play the legendary children’s advocate Fred Rogers, known as Mr. Rogers on his PBS series Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, in an upcoming biopic. While the internet was a buzz about what is considered perfect casting for the film, a title had yet to be released. Won’t You Be My Neighbor? was already taken for the documentary about Rogers that was released shortly after the Hanks news. At one point, there were rumors of the film being titled You Are My Friend, but they were never verified.
