Producer Jerry Bruckheimer Provides NATIONAL TREASURE 3 Movie Update


It has been 15 years since the last National Treasure movie was released. National Treasure: Book of Secrets left room for a new sequel to come along and continue the story, but things have been quiet on that front, aside from the franchise releasing the series National Treasure: Edge of History this past year to keep fans busy and having fun within the franchise.

But the film’s producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, has now given us an update on the National Treasure 3 movie that’s long been in the works, telling E!:

“We said we’d like to make another National Treasure and they said, ‘Sure, let’s come up with a new cast. At the same time, we were developing National Treasure for the theaters with Nicolas Cage—which we still are. So, that’s ongoing.”

Justin Bartha, who plays Nicolas Cage’s best friend and partner, Riley Poole, has returned to play the character in the series, and he has said:

“Ben and I have been working on this super important thing for the last three, four, 15 years.”

As for what that super important thing might be?

“Let’s just say, there’s 47 reasons to be interested.”

As National Treasure fans know, that’s a direct reference to the second movie, in which the President of the United States (Bruce Greenwood) tells Ben about a weird page 47 in the titular Book of Secrets, but its contents are never exposed to the audience.
