Nicolas Cage Expresses Shock As Disney Stalls Production Of National Treasure 3


According to Deadline, Oscar-winning actor Nicolas Cage during an interview shared his affinity for the popular Disney film series revealing his surprise that another movie hasn’t been given the green light.

“Yeah, well, they’re a lot of fun,” Cage said in regards to creating the movie.

“I mean, I enjoy them too, and I think Jon Turteltaub made a couple of classic films for the whole family. I’m still kind of amazed that Disney hasn’t wanted to make a third one. I thought the movies brought a lot of joy to the public, and it’s certainly interesting about history, and I think all of that is worthwhile filmmaking.”

After the release of the first National Treasure film in 2004, it remains one of Cage’s most popular works. The success of the action-adventure heist movie led to a sequel, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, which was released back in 2007.

Fifteen years later, the franchise expanded further with the Disney+ television series, National Treasure: Edge of History although it was canceled after one season. Throughout this time, there has been discussion and speculation about whether National Treasure 3 will ever happen.
