Prince of Persia Writers to Pen Disney's National Treasure 3
It's been over two years since we heard anything about Disney's adventure sequel National Treasure 3, but WonderCon brought some news on the series that has been leaps and bounds more entertaining than The Da Vinci Code franchise. While at the convention this past weekend ComingSoon found out that Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro will script the threequel which hasn't had any of plot points revealed, but we can assume will feature treasure and the pursuit of it. This will reunite the writers with Jerry Bruckheimer and director Jon Turteltaub again, after they worked on both Prince of Persia and The Sorcerer's Apprentice.
Sounds like Bruckheimer, Turteltaub and these two writers are in quite a groove together. While Prince of Persia doesn't look all the thrilling to me, I am quite interested in seeing a slightly off-kilter Nicolas Cage paired up with Jay Baruchel in The Sorcerer's Apprentice. So if those films actually deliver some quality entertainment then I'll be even more invested in a National Treasure 3, which will surely deliver more ole fashioned puzzle-ridden adventures. No official word if Nicolas Cage, Justin Bartha, Diane Kruger and Jon Voight will return, but we expect they will. Maybe Ben Gates can run into Robert Langdon and kick his ass?

As long as the third one has no one in it but Jon Voight.

Cool concept, could have been fun but the NT movies are a drag...

the only thing Bruckehimer has ever touched that I like. I;m a history geek though. Also, NT3 looks to deal with Page 47 from PT 2 (I'm thinking Roswell)

I'd bet Cage is back...although 3 unbelievable historical finds in one lifetime would be a stretch...maybe they'll try to introduce new characters. But if Cage comes back (because I know we're never going to see Nic Cage go away) this just doesn't sound like good news at all. I really really liked the first National Treasure but the second (which had an interesting story) was really a let down at the end. My hope is that they can bring the series around like Ocean's 13 making up for the awful Ocean's 12...but that's just my opinion.

I'm glad the will be a National Tresure 3, heres hoping that Nic Cage is on board. Shall look forward to more infomation on this film.

Hopefully the script WILL NOT include Cage's inept dribble. The only way I will see it if it is Cage-less....( worst of all time)

I will have another movie for sure.

Another team-up of Cage and Bruckheimer is awesome. The National Treasure films are fun popcorn films.

Like #7, I really enjoyed the first National Treasure; the sequel, not so much. Kind of like the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
