News from Jerry Bruckheimer, as he spoke to Collider, is that the “National Treasure” franchise is expanding beyond just a third film, with a TV series coming to Disney+!
During the recent interview, Bruckheimer stated:
“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.”
It’s also become apparent that “National Treasure 3” is still in scripting phase, while a pilot episode of the TV series has been written, including an outline of more episodes.
Jon Turtletaub directed the past 2 “National Treasure” films, and they starred Nicolas Cage as he hunts for treasures.
