Guest off to Museum

Christopher Guest and "Saturday Night Live" star Bill Hader have signed on to co-star in NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM 2, now operating under the subtitle BATTLE OF THE SMITHSONIAN. Guest will star as Ivan the Terrible while Hader will play General Custer. Robin Williams, Ricky Gervais and Owen Wilson are also all confirmed to be returning for the sequel. The newly announced cast join Ben Stiller, Amy Adams, Hank Azaria and Ed Helms in the sequel. Adams stars as Amelia Earhart, the love interest for Stiller's security guard Larry who gets moved to the Smithsonian. Director Shawn Levy and writers Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon (RENO: 911) are also returning for another go. While the first movie was as laughless as anything I've seen in recent memory, it piled up an impressive $574 million worldwide. And I'm a sucker for anything Amy Adams so I might bite the bullet and actually sit through this (with such a talented cast, how could it be so bad??). Filming on MUSEUM 2 is currently underway in Vancouver (Stiller and Adams reportedly already shot some scenes at the actual Smithsonian). The film is set for a May 22, 2009 release.

Extra Tidbit: I completely forgot that Guest was in A FEW GOOD MEN in a completely serious role.
