"Fred Rogers was such an inspirational man for so many people," said Treehouse producer Justin Nappi. "His keen ability to find the good in anyone, or anything, will make for a truly inspiring cinematic experience."
Details of the plot are being kept under wraps. Still, generations of children would probably be happy just watching 90 minutes of Rogers' famous shoe-and-sweater-changing routine.
Rogers was a Presbyterian minister who went into children's television and became the host of "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" in 1968. The show ran until 2001, earning four Emmys and a Lifetime Achievement Emmy for Rogers, who died in 2003.
