Though it has been six years since the sequel came out, a third film in the “National Treasure” series could finally be happening.
Filmmaker Jon Turteltaub has begun doing press for his new film “Last Vegas” and confirmed to Collider that the studio, himself, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and the actors all want to do the third film:
“We want to do the movie, Disney wants to do the movie. We’re just having the damnedest time writing it. I’ll bet that within two years, we’ll be shooting that movie.
I’d say we’re about half-way there. it’s not only writing a great historical mystery, but we’ve gotta write something that has nothing to do with anything we’ve done before.
The goal is to always have an original sequel, as silly as that sounds. We really want to make sure that the third one doesn’t just feel like a repeat of the first one, or one too many.”
