Ben Kingsley has been added to the cast of Shawn Levy's Night at the Museum 3, which also includes Rebel Wilson, Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan, and Ricky Gervais. The news comes from Deadline, which reveals that Kingsley will play "a formidable Egyptian pharaoh on display in the British museum, and he is revived by a magical tablet."
This franchise keeps pulling in the big money, which is why we are getting another sequel. It's set to be released Christmas of 2014, and there's no doubt that families will flock to the theaters to watch it.
Kingsley is such a talented actor, and he likes to take on fun, silly roles like this from time to time. I'm sure he'll be great in the movie, after all, he's great in everything that he does.
