Last year, producer Jerry bruckheimer revealed that a National Treasure The television series was in the works on Disney +. Now, we have news that it is officially happening and that Look nair (Queen of Katwe) is set to direct. However, the series will not feature Nicolas Cage’s continued adventures of Benjamin Franklin Gates. Instead, the series will follow “a twenty-year-old DREAMer” who goes on an adventure to uncover her mysterious family history while recovering treasure.
Deadline broke the news that Disney + is moving forward with a National Treasure T.V. series. The project comes from producer Jerry Bruckheimer and original writers. Marianne Y Cormac wibberley, and is described as a “reinvention of the National Treasure franchise. “While the films followed the story-loving treasure hunter Benjamin Franklin Gates, played by Nicolas Cage, who unravels historical mysteries, the series focuses on“ Jess Morales, a twenty-year-old dreamer who, with her diverse group As friends, he sets out on the adventure of a lifetime to discover his mysterious family history and recover the lost treasure. “
Mira Nair, Director of The namesake, Vanity fair, Queen of Katwe, and more, he will direct the show, which “explores current issues of identity, community, historical authorship and patriotism.” And you know what? That sounds great and that kind of rendering is important. That being said, there is a part of me that thinks this really doesn’t sound like National Treasure. When i look at the first National Treasure movie, I’m looking for a very silly adventure movie about Nic Cage running around looking for Ben Franklin’s magic glasses, while this tv shot sounds more … really? I guess what I’m saying here is that while I’m happy this show is on its way, I would love another goofy movie with Cage doing his thing.
Bruckheimer did indeed reveal that this show was on its way last year, and also teased a possible new movie, saying, “We are certainly working on a [National Treasure] for broadcast and we’re working on one for the big screen. Hopefully both of you will team up and we’ll bring you another one. National Treasure, but both are very active … The Disney + is a much younger cast. It is the same concept but with a young cast. The theater would be the same cast. “
Bruckheimer makes it clear there that while the TV show focuses on this younger cast, any new movie will bring Nicolas Cage and company back. Hopefully that will happen soon. I’m pretty sure Nic “I’ll take any movie to help with my bills” Cage will be more than happy to come back.
