National Treasure 3 to Search for Atlantis?

Nicolas Cage and Diane Kruger in National Treasure Book of Secrets (2007) Movie ImageWith the oodles of money that “National Treasures 2: Book of Secrets” made at the box office, it’s a fair bet that the studio is already eyeballing a third installment in the franchise. And even if they weren’t, Nicolas Cage must be nagging them about doing another one, the “Treasures” film being his biggest cash cow to date and all. It’s not easy for Cage to find a hit film — it seems that for every “Ghost Rider” he stumbles across, he has to put out 20 flops. So when they do decide to make a third one, where will Nic Cage go, and what will he be looking for? One rumor has Atlantis.

That’s already been hinted at by Nic Cage, who several months ago said he wanted the next movie to be more international. Now the guys over at Jim Hill claim to have the scoop on what exactly Gates will be hunting next. Their guess? Atlantis.

They claim there’s already a brief plot synopsis for the sequel floating around at Disney. In it the Gates family goes to Easter Island to hunt for Atlantis and the perfect, clean, power source which was supposed to have powered the legendary sunken city. Their goal is to use it to end global warming, which would mean Disney could preach to us about reducing our carbon emissions while at the same time throwing Nic Cage off a cliff.

I can see the title now: “National Treasure: In Search of Atlantis”. Or if they really want to get creative: “National Treasure: Nic Cage is from Atlantis.” I got 50-50 on the latter title.

    has anyone noticed this?
    okay. well near the end of the movie,
    patrick’s ex wife emily is looking at this object, i don’t recall what it is but i think i vaguely remember it being some sacrificial thing or something, anyways
    the place is supposed to be native american, but the object [the thing emily is examining] is clearly inscribed in chinese oracle bone or seal script…
    ? anyone else notice this?

    Well I look at it as if the 3rd one has nothing to do with page 47 then I will not even bother to watch it bc how are you gonna leave it open like that and then not explain what it is about

    I agree with the first comment. The other two movies were so great because they were almost believable. I’d be disappointed to have a weak story just for the sake of a new location.

      well who knows page 47 could be a clue to atlantis i mean that would be “life altering” or the fountain of youth for that matter.
