Paramount Pictures has declassified the release date for Robert Zemeckis’ untitled period spy thriller starring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard: The film will open Nov. 23, 2016, the day before Thanksgiving.

Plot details are being kept under wraps for what is billed as a “sweeping romantic thriller” based on an original story by screenwriter Steve Knight (Eastern Promises, Dirty Pretty Things), though the film is rumored to be set during World War II.

Zemeckis most recently helmed the biographical drama The Walk, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as World Trade Center high-wire artist Philippe Petit.

Pitt will next be seen in wife Angelina Jolie’s relationship drama By the Sea, and he’s currently filming War Machine. Cotillard will next be seen in Macbeth opposite Michael Fassbender, with whom she’s also shooting Assassin’s Creed.
