Owen Wilson and Steve Coogan will return for Ben Stiller's Night at the Museum 2: Escape From the Smithsonian. According to an interview Hank Azaria had with MTV News, Azaria will play the villain and Amy Adams has also signed on to star as Amelia Earhart.
"I am playing a fictional Egyptian pharaoh that comes to life," Azaria revealed to MTV News. "I'm the villain in the movie and have all sorts of nasty plans for modern society and poor Ben Stiller gets caught in the middle of it."
"Owen [Wilson] is coming back and so is Steve Coogan and Ricky Gervais. And there's other fun folks too who haven't officially signed on yet playing historical figures," Azaria teased.
Night at the Museum 2: Escape From the Smithsonian is scheduled to be released on May 22nd, 2009.
