National Treasure is Not History: TV Series is in Development for Disney+
Nicholas Cage has starred in two National Treasure movies with a third installment on the way. But, Jerry Bruckheimer, producer of the movies, has confirmed a National Treasure series in development for Disney+.
“We’re certainly working on one for streaming and we’re also working on one for the big screen,” Bruckheimer told Collider. “So, hopefully, they’ll both come together and we’ll bring you another National Treasure, but they’re both very active.”
The TV series features a younger cast, but the same concept as the National Treasure movies. So, fans can expect history, treasure hunting and interesting locations for the adventures. “The television version is in process,” the producer said. “We have, I think, a pilot script done and an outline of the future episodes.” (EW/2019)
National Treasure 3 will feature the same cast as the previous movies including Nicolas Cage. Cage will continue to play Benjamin Franklin Gates, an amateur treasure hunter and historian who hunts for riches using historical clues. The first two movies were not huge successes, but still have a small, loyal fan base. The original films also starred Harvey Keitel, Diane Kruger, Sean Bean and Jon Voight.
Cage himself has been busy as he has recently announced he is scheduled to play “Joe Exotic” in a television series based on the Neflix documentary, Tiger King.
Disney+ has several new original shows on the schedule. Shows based on the movie Turner and Hooch, The Mighty Ducks and a spinoff of Beauty and the Beast (with Josh Gad) are all in the works for the streaming platform.
Bruckheimer went on to confirm the televison series will happen before the movie.
