The Founder, starring Michael Keaton as the father of McDonald’s, will be released on Nov. 25, 2016.

The film tells the tale of how Illionis salesman Ray Kroc pushed out the original owners of the drive-thru business, Mac and Dic McDonald, and turned the fast food chain into a national franchise.

The Weinstein Co. has found the Thanksgiving-timed release to be rewarding in the past, having slated the Oscar winners The King’s Speech and The Imitation Game for the holiday release as well.
