For the past 15 years there has always been lingering talks of Nicolas Cage returning for his role as Benjamin Franklin Gates in the National Treasure franchise. Once Disney decided to move on with a Disney+ show without his character, the boat seems like it has finally sailed.
But hopes are back and alive now as producer Jerry Bruckheimer has confirmed a National Treasure 3 script is complete and is being sent to none other than Cage for approval.
“Let’s hope we’re working on the script right now. Hopefully [Cage] likes it, but it’s really good. So I think we’ll get it to him shortly,” Bruckheimer told Comicbook.com.
