(FROM VARIETY) ? Amy Adams (Enchanted, Charlie Wilson’s War) is in talks to join Ben Stiller in Night at the Museum 2, the sequel to the hit 2006 comedy starring Stiller, Robin Williams, and Steve Coogan. The first movie took in more than $500 million worldwide with a very successful holiday opening. In the sequel, artifacts from the Museum of Natural History are boxed up and sent to the archives at the Smithsonian in Washington. The project is shooting inside the Smithsonian in D.C. and will feature artifacts as wide-ranging as Amelia Earhart’s plane and Dorothy’s ruby red slippers. Adams is negotiating a role in the movie as a historical figure who has a crush on security guard Larry (Stiller). Shawn Levy, who directed the first Museum, is also on board for the sequel, which is scheduled to release on May 22, 2009. In addition to Charlie Wilson, Adams is currently starring alongside Emily Blunt in Sunshine Cleaning, the indie black comedy that just debuted at Sundance. (Variety)
