The studio also announced a release date for Paul Feig's thriller 'A Simple Favor,' starring Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively.

Lionsgate and Summit's Robin Hood is relocating again, this time to Thanksgiving week.

The origin story — starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx, Jamie Dornan, Eve Hewson and Paul Anderson — is being pushed back from Sept. 21 to Nov. 21 (it was previously set to hit theaters on March 23). Otto Bathurst is directing the film, which includes Leonardo DiCaprio as a producer. It centers on Robin Hood as a crusader as he fights against corruption, long before he became a legendary outlaw.

The studio will also now open Paul Feig's female-driven thriller A Simple Favor on Sept. 14. The film, starring Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively, is based on Darcey Bell's 2017 book about a mommy blogger whose best friend suddenly disappears from their small town.
