Thomas Lennon Hints at a Third Night at the Museum Movie

Night at the Museum

You know that a studio like 20th Century Fox with a two film franchise like Night at the Museum that has grossed almost a billion dollars worldwide won't be leaving it out to dry. So it comes as no surprise that a third installment might be on the way as Access Hollywood caught up with franchise co-writer Thomas Lennon who hinted at the possibility of a sequel: "I think it's a really outstanding idea to do Night at the Museum 3, in fact, I wonder if someone's not even already working on a script for that." But it's not totally official. “I cannot confirm that for a fact, but I cannot deny it for a fact either. It might be in the works."

Though Lennon joked that the film would take place in The Liberace Museum, there's no word on where the sequel would take us. As one of the few people in the online film community who don't have unbridled hate for Shawn Levy, I've rather enjoyed the Night at the Museum films for the family-friendly films they are. It's not the highest quality of writing, but there's plenty of decent comedy to go around. While I will concede that Levy has made more than his fair share of awful family comedies (Cheaper by the Dozen, The Pink Panther) it looks like his comedic value just might be going up with his forthcoming comedy Date Night.

However, I don't expect him to dive into the sequel soon with Real Steel starting production this June and 11 more projects on his upcoming roster. But with a valuable franchise like this on the line, Fox would probably have a decent number in mind to get Levy to fast track the project if they really wanted to. It's probably not wise to ask for fear of the impending hate parade, but are you interested in Night at the Museum 3?

No! I liked the first film but the second was really lame and not funny. I thought the story ended nicely already. What's the point of making another sequel?

Most of the cast from the 1st movie spent their time in a box in the 2nd movie. That's a great plot device for keeping people out of the way of the special effects and main characters and main story...
