According to Variety, Reese Witherspoon has been approached to play Amelia Earhart in Night at the Museum 2: Escape From the Smithsonian. According to the report, Fox has moved the sequel’s release date to May 22, 2009, switching places with James Cameron‘s Avatar, which will now open December 18, 2009.
Though I have mild optimism since Museum 2 is being co-written by Reno 911‘s Thomas Lennon, he also wrote the first one and we all know how that ended up.
So, Reese… I don’t know if you’re seriously considering this. And I get why you might be. Rendition made like 50 cents and this movie is bounded to make 200 million times that at the very least. But you don’t make that many movies these days, and your post-Walk The Line resume is not looking so good. I’d seriously rather Legally Blonde 3: Blondest Ever than this.
