Disney Officially Developing A Third ‘National Treasure’ Movie

It’s been quite some time since we saw Nicolas Cage as the historian and treasure hunter Ben Gates in Disney’s National Treasure franchise but fans of the two films should get excited with this news.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a third film in the franchise is in the works. As writer Chris Bremmer is currently writing the script for the film, producer Jerry Bruckheimer is also on board to produce the franchise again. Both Bremmer and Bruckheimer are coming off Bad Boys For Life which is currently in theaters and receiving high praise from critics and fans, with some calling it the best Bad Boys film in the franchise, with a fourth film also in the works.

As of now, it is not known if stars Nicolas Cage, Justin Bartha, Diane Kruger, Jon Voight, and Helen Mirren will return or if this will center on a new set of characters. My guess is Disney will want the original cast back. Their schedules are wide open at the moment. Nicolas Cage was at the height of his career with Disney. It’s also not known if this film will get a theatrical release or become a Disney+ original film.


Released in 2004, National Treasure followed Ben Gates (Cage) and his team (Bartha and Krueger) as they race to find the legendary Templar Treasure before a team of mercenaries. The film grossed $347 million at the worldwide box office. This led Disney to release a sequel titled Book of Secrets which grossed an astounding $447 million worldwide.
