Surprise smash may get sequel

Posted by gnn1 on Sunday, 26 August 2007

Night at the Museum, which did way better than I’d expected, may be getting a sequel.  It won’t be set in NYC, and it doesn’t appear that it will star Ben Stiller.  Reportedly Robin Williams has signed on, although his IMDb page doesn’t list it, and shows no ‘in-development’ projects’.

Other than this, the only information available is that the screenwriters have said it would be funnier than the first (don’t they always think that) and that it will have

“big new characters”.
