Comedian and actress Rebel Wilson, of Super Fun Night and Pitch Perfect, will be delving into the world of talking, walking museum exhibits as she has just been cast to appear in Night at the Museum 3, according to Deadline.
The third film in the comedy/fantasy trilogy will take place at the iconic British Museum, where Rebel will play the night guard who must deal with the magically-animated exhibits.
Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Ricky Gervais, and Steve Coogan are all returning to reprise their roles, while director Shawn Levy, who directed the first two NATMs, will helm the third as well.
Once again, the script is being penned by the writing partners and actors Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant. Lennon and Garrant have scripted the other installments, but are perhaps best known for starring in, and creating, Reno 911!.
The film is scheduled for a Christmas 2014 release.
