Said to be on the way for some time, Twentieth Century Fox’s family sequel Night at the Museum 3 has been scheduled to hit theaters on December 25, 2014. Shawn Levy will return to the franchise as director with Ben Stiller reprising his role as museum security guard Larry Daley.
The first Night at the Museum was released in 2006 and followed Stiller’s Daley as he discovered that, at night, the exhibits at New York’s Museum of Natural History come to life. The 2009 sequel Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian then brought the action to Washington, DC. There’s no word yet on where the third adventure might be set, but don’t be surprised to see other familiar faces returning beyond Stiller.
Levy last directed Real Steel and will release his latest comedy The Internship on June 7.
