Fame is a four letter word and like tape, or zoom, or face, or pain, or life, or love, what ultimately matters is what we do with it. - Fred Rogers

Won't you be my neighbor? 

If you just sang that question in your head then you're familiar with the prince of positivity and a true kid at heart, Mr. Fred Rogers. Remember seeing that cool little trolley he would talk to that would cross into the Neighborhood Of Make Believe? Good times!

According to an exclusive report from Variety, the film distribution rights have been purchased by TriStar Pictures for a Mr. Rogers biopic movie script that comes with the one and only Tom Hanks attached as the lead. Although the movie is still extremely early in the production process (keep in mind no cameras will start rolling til at least September), it'll bring a fresh focus on the power of kindness and positive thinking when it is finally finished. 

You Are My Friend will tell the story of a journalist assigned to do a story on Mr. Rogers who, although at reluctant at first, warms up to become friends with the famed host and changes his own outlook on life for the better as a result.
