According to The Hollywood Reporter, Carla Gugino is in final negotiations to star opposite Ben Stiller in Night at the Museum for 20th Century Fox.

Shawn Levy is directing the live-action/CG comedy, which centers on a goodhearted but bumbling security guard (Stiller) who works at a natural history museum where he accidentally trips an ancient curse that causes the animals and insects on display to come to life.

Museum is set to begin shooting next month in Vancouver and is slated for a holiday release this year. Levy is producing the film through his 21 Laps Entertainment along with 1492 Prods.' Chris Columbus and Michael Barnathan.
