Ben Kingsley Set For Night At The Museum 3
But will his Pharaoh be the toast of Croydon?

Ben-Kingsley-Set-For-Night-At-The-Museum-3

Shawn Levy has turned the act-o-tron up to full power for his third Night At The Museum movie, drawing the likes of Dan Stevens and Rebel Wilson to join the returning regulars, which of course includes main man Ben Stiller. Now the device has targeted Ben Kingsley.

Kingsley is set to play a formidable Egyptian pharaoh on display in the British Museum, who is awoken thanks to the usual magical madness. Whether he’ll end up being a force for good or ill remains to be seen (though Hank Azaria’s Kahmunrah in Battle Of The Smithsonian was a wrong ‘un, so perhaps writers Thomas Lennon, Robert Ben Garant, David Guion and Michael Handelman are going another way with the Kingsley character.)

Stevens’ Lancelot has been described as more of a threat this time, so he’s likely to be the one causing trouble for Stiller’s Larry Daley, Robin Williams’ President Teddy Roosevelt and the rest of the gang, which includes veterans Ricky Gervais, Steve Coogan and Owen Wilson. Levy is set to deliver this one to cinemas on December 26.
