Since Stephen ("The Mummy") Sommers will be helming the "When Worlds Collide" remake for Paramount, Fox needed someone to step in on their live-action/animated comedy "A Night at the Museum." So they hired Shawn Levy.

Director of "Big Fat Liar," "Just Married," "Cheaper By the Dozen," and the upcoming remake of "The Pink Panther," Mr. Levy jumping into the helmer’s chair for Fox’s "Museum."

According to Variety, "the family comedy centers on a goodhearted but bumbling security guard at the Museum of Natural History who accidentally trips an ancient curse that causes the animals and insects on display to come to life."
