Back in October of 2013, director Jon Turteltaub revealed that he hoped to go into production on National Treasure 3 “within two years”, only for things to fall deathly silent on the third chapter in Disney’s action-adventure series.
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, star Nicolas Cage has confirmed that the project remains a possibility, but so far they’ve been unable to nail down the script:
“I haven’t really heard anything about that,” states Cage. “I do know that those scripts are very difficult to write, because there has to be some credibility in terms of the facts and fact-checking, because it was relying on historical events. And then you have to make it entertaining. I know that it’s been a challenge to get the script where it needs to be. That’s as much as I’ve heard. But they’re still working on it.”
The first National Treasure movie was released in 2004, with the sequel National Treasure: Book of Secrets arriving in 2007. Between them, the two movies grossed over $800 million worldwide.
