The sequel America demanded is finally on its way.

Critics have loved Amy Adams since her Junebug days, but now that she’s charmed audiences on a larger scale with Enchanted, she’s finding herself in demand for more high-profile projects.

Next on the list, according to Variety, is a role in Night at the Museum 2, the sequel to — you guessed it — 2006’s Night at the Museum, the Ben Stiller comedy that went on to over $573 million in worldwide grosses.

We repeat: $573 million.

Anyway, yeah, 20th Century Fox is excited for the sequel’s May start — and who wouldn’t be, with a synopsis like the one published by Variety?

Pic kicks off when the artifacts from the Museum of Natural History are boxed up and sent to the archives at the Smithsonian in Washington. Adams will play an undetermined historical figure who has a crush on security guard Larry (Stiller).

As with the first Museum, Shawn Levy will direct from a script by Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon — with help from Scott Frank, who, according to Variety, wrote “the most recent draft.”

Before making goo-goo eyes at Stiller, Adams will be seen in Sunshine Cleaning, which features no Dick Van Dyke or animated dinosaur skeletons, but earned positive reviews at Sundance anyway.
