The star-studded, still-untitled movie chronicling the downfall of Fox News boss Roger Ailes has a release date.

Lionsgate has slated the Jay Roach-directed film for December 20.

The movie is packed with A-list talent: Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly; Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson; Margot Robbie as news producer Kayla Pospisil; and John Lithgow as Ailes himself.

Malcolm McDowell, Allison Janney, Kate McKinnon, Mark Duplass also star.

The story follows the women who took on the Fox News mogul and the network's toxic male culture. Carlson sued Ailes for sexual harassment in 2016 and Kelly came forward with her allegations. Ailes ultimately stepped down as CEO.

The Ailes movie joins a crowded slate around Christmas, which includes "Star Wars: Episode IX" and the adaptation of Broadway's "Cats."
