Robin Williams to be living museum piece
The Good Morning, Vietnam and Flubber star will appear alongside Ben Stiller (Meet The Fockers, Madagascar) in the film that will tell the story of a bumbling museum security guard who accidentally sets off a pharaoh's curse that brings the museum's exhibitions to life.
As well as dead presidents Stiller, joined by Carla Gugino (Sin City, Spy Kids), Mickey Rooney (Breakfast At Tiffany's) and Dick Van Dyke (Tubby The Tuba, Mary Poppins), will have to face swarms of insects and animals coming to life and causing havoc in the museum.
The film will be directed by Shawn Levy, who was also behind Just Married, Cheaper By The Dozen and who will also direct the remake of The Pink Panther.
