Paramount is moving Daddy's Home 2 into theaters in November.

The studio announced that the sequel will be released nationwide Nov. 10, opposite Fox's Francis Lawrence-helmed thriller Red Sparrow and Sony's faith-based animated film The Star.

Mel Gibson and John Lithgow are eyed to join Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg in Sean Anders' follow-up, which will once again see the two types of father figures — the strong alpha male and the sensitive caring type — go head-to-head. This time around, the palette is expanding to include an older generation.

Anders directed the initial Daddy's Home, which opened Christmas Day in 2015 and grossed $240 million worldwide. Linda Cardellini and Thomas Haden Church were among the cast.
