While it’s true that Dan Stevens can’t receive mail any longer at his Downton Abbey home after his unfortunate Christmas 2012 departure, he may just have a new UK address before too long. Stevens has just signed on for Night at the Museum 3 which is scheduled to begin production in London in February 2014 with a December 25, 2014 release in theaters. Could his new UK address possibly be London’s Museum of Natural History?
After a bit of a slow start, Stevens has been increasingly busy since his departure from Downton Abbey, having appeared in a number of high profile film roles, including The Fifth Estate, Summer In February and the upcoming thriller, A Walk Among the Tombstones. His newest role as Lancelot, the villain in Night at the Museum 3, will find him opposite Hollywood heavyweights Ben Stiller and Robin Williams, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Stiller will reprise his role as security guard, Larry Daley with Williams returning to play Teddy Roosevelt. While no ‘official’ storyline has been announced, the action will move to London and is sure to continue the exploits of Larry the museum night watchman as he once again discovers that its myriad exhibits come to life after dark. The London setting makes the Museum of Natural History the logical choice don’t you think?
