News that Hanks had signed on to depict Rogers in the upcoming Mister Rogers movie, the biopic then titled You Are My Friend came out in January, to much excited anticipation.

Variety first reported in January that Hanks would play Rogers in TriStar Pictures' biographical drama, with production starting in September.
