‘National Treasure 3’ with Nicolas Cage gets major update from producer Jerry Bruckheimer

According to producer Jerry Bruckheimer, a third “National Treasure” movie is in the works. 

The first movie of the franchise came out in 2004, with Nicolas Cage leading the cast as Benjamin Franklin Gates. A second movie, “National Treasure: Book of Secrets” came out a few years later in 2007. 

Since then, a third movie has yet to be released, although there was a Disney+ series released in 2022 called “National Treasure: Edge of History” based on the movies.
