Nicolas Cage confirmed early on that a National Treasure movie would be in the works soon, making it the third part of the series. A spin-off of the franchise has already been released, National Treasure: Edge of History. Now Cage will also be returning in his fan-favorite movie series which would be separate from the spin-off.

The script for the third part is already underway and by the looks of it, the actor might really like it. The movie will still be set in the same universe as the spin-off as it features characters from the franchise as well. The producer too seems to be hopeful of the installment and that it might bring back the series.

The Script For Nicolas Cage’s Movie Is Already Ready

The producer Jerry Bruckheimer adores the fact that Nicolas Cage is possibly going to film National Treasure 3 and the script too seems to be prepared. The idea was initially to make a project with new characters while still maintaining what the franchise had built.

“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.”

While the movie had been in the works for years now, Cage gets closer and closer to becoming a part of it, being doubtful for a long time about whether or not the third part would even happen. The script would soon be presented to the actor and the producer is keeping his fingers crossed that Nicolas Cage likes it. He would love to have the actor play the part and bring back a franchise after over a decade of fans waiting to see more.

Nicolas Cage Would Like To Come Back To National Treasure

Nicolas Cage has previously stated that he would not mind coming back to the National Treasure even if it’s been fourteen years since the last movie came out.

“I enjoy making movies like Pig and Leaving Las Vegas more than I enjoy making movies like National Treasure. When I talk about fair-weather friends in Hollywood, I’m not talking about Jerry [Bruckheimer]. I’m talking about Disney. They’re like an ocean liner. Once they go in a certain direction, you’ve got to get a million tugboats to try to swivel it back around.”

However, he further stated that he would rather film more movies that were not as child friendly and in much darker tones. He also claimed that even though he would not mind filming another movie, he would lean more toward the other genres.
