Confirmed: ‘National Treasure 3‘ In Development and a ‘National Treasure‘ Series is Coming to Disney+. Jerry Bruckheimer has revealed more National Treasure is on the way! The famed producer opened his “Book of Secrets” to Collider and shared that not only is National Treasure 3 in development, but the franchise is getting a series that will premiere exclusively on Disney+.
Bruckheimer shared, “We’re certainly working on one [National Treasure] for streaming and we’re working on one for the big screen. Hopefully, they’ll both come together and we’ll bring you another National Treasure, but they’re both very active….The one for Disney+ is a much younger cast. It’s the same concept but a young cast. The one for theatrical would be the same cast.”
Nicholas Cage has yet to be confirmed to return, but has expressed interest in the past about reprising his role as Ben Gates. It seems that Jerry is confident the entire cast including Diane Kruger (Abigail Chase), Justin Bartha (Riley Poole), Jon Voight (Patrick Gates), Helen Mirren (Emily Appleton-Gates), and Harvey Keitel (Agent Sadusky) will return to reprise their roles for the 3rd film. Director Jon Turtletaub is set to return for National Treasure 3, with Bad Boys for Life writer Chris Bremner penning the script.
“The film version is being written right now. The television version is in process. We have a pilot script done and an outline of the future episodes,” shared the producer.
Bruckheimer did emphasize the Disney+ series will feature a younger cast with a similar concept to the films. It is unknown if the characters in the series will be related to the characters in the films, but we would likely see the appearance or nods towards the events and characters in the films.
It is currently unknown when production will begin and no theatrical or Disney+ release dates has been announced at the time of writing.
