It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood for Tom Hanks.

The Concord-native will be playing the role of Fred Rogers in the biopic, You Are My Friend.

You Are My Friend tells the tale of real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and Tom Junod. Junod, a cynical journalist, found that his life was transformed after getting to know the beloved TV icon.

Marielle Heller, who was the director of Diary of a Teenage Girl, will be leading the project.

Tom Hanks has been busy lately. He is currently appearing in Steven Spielberg's The Post alongside Meryl Streep.
