The popular Nicolas Cage franchise, National Treasure, is being turned into a new streaming series on Disney Plus.
Jerry Bruckheimer, who produced both the original “National Treasure” and its sequel, “National Treasure: Book of Secrets,” revealed the news in a Collider interview for his upcoming Starz series “Hightown.”
“We’re certainly working on one [‘National Treasure’] for streaming and we’re working on one for the big screen,” Bruckheimer said. “Hopefully, they’ll both come together and we’ll bring you another ‘National Treasure,’ but they’re both very active … The one for Disney Plus is a much younger cast. It’s the same concept but a young cast.”
This project marks the latest adaptation of a well-regarded film series on Disney Plus, joining the upcoming reboots of “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” and “Home Alone” that have been announced by the streamer.
