‘National Treasure 3’ is in the works

It’s been 16 years since Ben Gates declared that he was going to steal the Declaration of Independence.
Screenwriter Chris Bremner has confirmed that “National Treasure 3” is officially in the works. The Jerry Bruckheimer and Disney-produced franchise originally starred Nicolas Cage as amateur cryptologist Benjamin Franklin Gates. The two films also starred Justin Bartha, Diane Kruger, Harvey Keitel, Armando Riesco and Jon Voight.

2004 original, which centered on a treasure map on the back of the Declaration of Independence, was met with massive success, bringing in $347 million worldwide. The 2007 sequel, “National Treasure: Book of Secrets,” which focused on the missing pages of John Wilkes Booth’s diary, made $457 million, about triple its initial $130 million USD budget.

Disney CEO Bob Iger addressed the prospects of a “National Treasure 3” last year at the annual shareholders’ meetings. He said that although there was a desire to produce a third film and discussions have been ongoing, the studio had not yet greenlit the project. The reason was that there were a “number of different possibilities both on the creative side and from a timing perspective.”

Chris Bremner, most recently scripted “Bad Boys for Life,” another one of Jerry Bruckheimer’s franchises, and is reportedly set to pen “Bad Boys 4.”
