Briefly: The two Night at the Museum movies, from ’06 and ’09, did too well for Fox to let the franchise stop at two. Other studios are playing with their own films based on a similar concept, and so Fox is going to follow Ben Stiller back into the nightlife at (presumably) a new collection of historic artifacts.
Fox has announced that Night at the Museum 3, directed by Shawn Levy, will open on December 25, 2014. Rejoice! (That is, rejoice if you’re an investor, because this thing is practically guaranteed to make money.) No word on the plot or setting, but the threequel in a situation like this is often the one that goes to Europe, so don’t be surprised if Stiller’s character finds himself in the Louvre or some similarly famous location overseas.
