'National Treasure 3' In The Works at Disney

It’s official – National Treasure 3 is coming!

News broke this afternoon (January 17) that a third film in the popular franchise is in the works.

Variety is reporting that Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer have tapped Chris Bremner to write the script.

If you don’t know, the first two films starring Nicolas Cage and Diane Kruger, centered on cryptologist Benjamin Franklin Gates. In the first movie, he found a treasure map on the back of the Declaration of Independence, and the second focused on missing pages in John Wilkes Booth’s diary.

Disney chief Bob Iger addressed the potential for a third movie at the annual shareholders meeting last year.

“I know that Jerry Bruckheimer who produced National Treasure 1 And 2 would like to make a third movie and I know that discussions about that film have gone on, probably since 2016, with our studio, but I know that they have not greenlit such a film,” he shared.

Bob added, “They have talked about a number of different possibilities both on the creative side and from a timing perspective and I just don’t have anything to announce, though I did speak with Mr. Bruckheimer not long ago about it and I know his passion for that franchise remains pretty strong. We love those first two films too, but we’re not quite there yet.”

You can stream National Treasure on Netflix now.
