This movie seems like one of those that just never get done, even though everyone talks about it. National Treasure 3 has been “in the works” for a little over FOREVER, or to be a little more exact about 6 years. In those 6 years we haven’t really had much in the way of official National Treasure 3 news, its been mostly rumours. We do have a little official news now though with Bruckheimer answering a few questions for Collider. You will remember that we had news from Bruckheimer last June since then it certainly seems like things have progressed, although VERY slowly!
I am no film maker or writer but the last we heard the script was being written and it was with a “team of writers” and now they have the “first act” done – Does this mean that its taken just under a year to write around 30 minutes of a movie script?! That seems awfully long to me. I am hopeful now the first act is done and clearly its an act they are excited about, maybe more resources and time will be spent to finish this script off and get it filmed!
Is it the same thing with National Treasure 3? Nicolas Cage has said that he wants to make it, and it’s clearly something the director also wants to do, but it hasn’t gone into production yet.
BRUCKHEIMER: Those are the hardest movies to make ‘cause they’re all based on clues. It’s so difficult to work them out. But, we got a first act in [on Friday], and Jon [Turteltaub] was very excited about it and I’m very excited about it. Hopefully, the first act will lead into the second act and the third act, and we’ll get this thing going.
