Disney: “National Treasure III” In Development
Back in the day, in 2004 — when The DaVinci Code wasn’t yet a movie (but was a bestselling book) — Disney had it’s own legend conspiracy theory-based mystery/thriller – National Treasure.
Check out the trailer:
Now a cult favorite, the surprising success of that original (starring Nicolas Cage, Diane Kruger, and Justin Bartha among many, many others) spawned an even more successful (at least financially) sequel in 2007 – National Treasure: Book of Secrets.
That trailer is below:
And last week, reports surfaced regarding a third National Treasure film being in development by Disney.
Disney is working on a third installment of its National Treasure movies, according to a report Friday. Spotted earlier by CNET sister site ComicBook, The Hollywood Reporter said Jerry Bruckheimer will again produce, while Chris Bremner will write the script.
No word yet on whether Nicolas Cage and Diane Kruger will be back as Benjamin Franklin Gates and Dr. Abigail Chase. Disney didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
The sequel would follow National Treasure, which hit screens in 2004 and currently lives on Netflix, and 2007’s National Treasure: Book of Secrets, which is on Disney’s own streaming service… The first National Treasure movie will be available onon April 30.
Hey, I am all in for another National Treasure and great (out of context) quotes like this:
Yeah, someone that did something in history and had fun. Great. Wonderful. Could have had a bigger house!”
