A tragedy on the set of the Mr. Rogers movie starring Tom Hanks forced the production to shut down yesterday (Thursday).
A 61-year-old sound mixer was taking a smoke break when he somehow fell two stories off a balcony. The man was rushed to a Pittsburgh hospital where his condition quickly worsened. He was later pronounced dead. Filming has been suspended while police investigate the incident.
Hanks stars as Fred Rogers in the biopic, titled You Are My Friend. It is scheduled to come out next October.(WPXI-TV)
