Jerry Bruckheimer Teases Nicolas Cage's Return for 'National Treasure 3'
As the script nears completion.
Following the release of the first teaser trailer for the spin-off Disney+ series, National Treasure: Edge of History, film producer Jerry Bruckheimer reveals that development for National Treasure 3 is still going forward. In a recent interview with Comicbook, Buckheimer touches upon plans for the highly-anticipated return of Nicolas Cage’s character Ben Franklin Gates. “Let’s hope we’re working on the script right now. Hopefully [Cage] likes it, but it’s really good. So I think we’ll get it to him shortly,” he said.
With the debut National Treasure film released back in 2004 and the National Treasure: Book of Secrets sequel released in 2007, the National Treasure: Edge of History series marks the first return of the franchise in 15 years. While a number of cast members will return for the series, producers have made it clear that the show would not feature Ben Gates, leaving room for Cage to make his return for the second National Treasure sequel film.
