The kid-friendly original was set in N.Y.C.'s American Museum of Natural History; now producers are eyeing the Air and Space Museum for Night at the Museum 2 ("Escape From the Smithsonian"). A D.C. shoot (possibly in May) would bring Stiller and Amy Adams to town.
Twentieth Century Fox is now negotiating to film inside -- a rare move for the Smithsonian, but one officials seem open to. "This movie reaches an important demographic, young kids, and it's very positive" about museums, said Air and Space rep Claire Brown.
