He was taken to the hospital in serious condition, but after arriving his status worsened. Filming has been halted as the police investigated.

In the film, Hanks stars as Fred Rogers, while Matthew Rhys co-stars as a journalist who became friends with Rogers. Chris Cooper will also appear in the film as Rhys’ character’s father.

“Diary of a Teenage Girl” director Marielle Heller is helming the movie from a script by Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster.
