"Mummy" Director to Spend a "Night at the Museum"

by | August 29, 2005 | Comments

The Hollywood Reporter brings news on the next project for "Mummy" director Stephen Sommers, and it looks to be the high-concept comedic fantasy entitled "A Night at the Museum."

The Fox project was written by Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant, with a few revisions here and there from Scott Frank.

"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, wreaking havoc in the area."

The screenplay is loosely based on the children’s novel by Milan Trenc.

Other flicks in Sommers’ repertoire include "The Mummy Returns," "Van Helsing," and "Deep Rising."
