Nearly a decade on from the sequel’s release, talk of a third film in Disney’s “National Treasure” franchise seemingly died off a few years ago and it looked as though that franchise was over. Turns out though it’s not quite dead just yet.
At the studio’s annual shareholders meeting, Disney CEO Bob Iger was asked a question about whether or not we might ever see another film in the series. He reportedly responded (via ComicBook.com) that another film is still being actively considered by both Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer:
“We have done two, and yes they were really fine movies. I know Jerry Bruckheimer who produced them has had conversations with our studio a number of times about it, and there have been some developments along the way, but as of right now we have not green-lit as we say, a National Treasure 3. But I do know there is time and some resources spent on development. That’s all I can tell ya.”
Jon Turteltaub, who directed the first two films, has remained attached to a third since 2008 when talk first came up.
