While everyone is pumped to see Nicolas Cage return as Benjamin Gates in the third National Treasure film, it looks as though a new spinoff TV series at Disney+ is also in the making at the same time.
This was revealed by the show’s producer Jerry Bruckheimer in a recent interview with Collider. Though no exact details were revealed, he mentioned that the TV series will feature a “much younger cast”. However, he didn’t indicate whether any of the film counterparts will be making an appearance, despite the series clearly being set in the same universe.
Bruckheimer also stated that both projects are currently in the early stages of pre-production, with the film still being written, and the TV series “in process”. A pilot script and outline of future episodes has already been done up.
While waiting for the return of Benjamin Gates, fans of Nicolas Cage can look forward to him taking on the reins of Joe Exotic in a future Tiger King TV series.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
