Mickey Rooney, Dick Van Dyke and Bill Cobbs (I Still Know What You Did Last Summer) will play villains in director Shawn Levy's fantasy action-comedy Night at the Museum for 20th Century Fox, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Rooney, Van Dyke and Cobbs will play security guards at the Museum of Natural History on the same detail as Ben Stiller's night watchman. Stiller's character discovers a magical pharaoh's tablet, but Van Dyke, playing the head of security who has worked at the museum for nearly 50 years, wants the tablet to stay young. Rooney is his colleague who, with Cobbs, helps Van Dyke's character with his nefarious schemes.
Fox is targeting a December 22 release for the film, which also stars Carla Gugino and Kim Raver.
