Back in September, we had our first look at the upcoming Mr. Rogers biopic starring Tom Hanks. Now, the project has officially been given a title: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.

The film take its heartwarming name from the theme song of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. “It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood/ A beautiful day for a neighbor,” goes the educational children’s show’s tune. “Would you be mine? Could you be mine?”

Due out through Sony, the biopic is being directed by Marielle Heller (Diary of a Teenage Girl) and features a script from Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster. Matthew Rhys, Chris Cooper, Tammy Blanchard, and Sakina Jaffrey have also been cast alongside Hanks.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is inspired by the real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and a journalist named Tom Junod. Assigned to write a profile about Rogers, a cynical Junod finds his life transformed by the experience.
