.....not with Nicholas Cage.....but with a new younger and more diverse cast on Disney+.......series has been greenlit.......10 episodes.......


Disney Plus is officially rebooting National Treasure as a streaming TV show

With a younger, more diverse cast

.....Disney is officially bringing back its long-dormant National Treasure franchise with a new TV series for Disney Plus. The series has been given a ten-episode greenlight and will reimagine the treasure-hunting franchise with a younger, more diverse cast.

The new series will reportedly feature a new main character, Jess Morales, a twenty-year-old DREAMer who will (in National Treasure traditional) “uncover her mysterious family history and recover lost treasure.” The show, set to be directed by Mira Nair, is also said to look to examine “issues of identity, community, historical authorship and patriotism.”

The original films — which starred Nicolas Cage as Benjamin Franklin Gates — take a decidedly apolitical stance to American history, using symbols like the Declaration of Independence as Americana-themed clues in the Indiana Jones-esque treasure hunt. A reboot that’s willing to more critically examine America’s place in history could be an interesting new spin on the franchise, depending on how it’s handled.

Also on board with the project is Jerry Bruckheimer, who produced the two original films, and Marianne and Cormac Wibberley, who were part of the writing team on both National Treasure and National Treasure: Book of Secrets.

The new project is also separate from the long-gestating third National Treasure film, which has been stuck in development hell for over a decade but would — at least in theory — see Cage and the original cast of the first two films return for another adventure.

This has already been done as an off-brand, called Warehouse 13.

Lasted longer than I thought it would, but it clearly fell off a writers cliff at the end.

It certainly did... Warehouse 13 had a great start, then at some point it was like the writers sat down in a room and stared at each other and one said... "OK, NOW what?".. out came the crayons, and that next season was hatched.

I generally liked Warehouse 13 and the cast (Allison Scagliotti, yum!) but couldn't stand the female Secret Service agent Joanne Kelly.

Kelly had no range, one, maybe two facial expressions, and none of them were good.

Maybe she was good in something else, but not 13.

I didn't think much of Aaron Ashmore in anything he did until Killjoys.

He was excellent in that, so he earned a pass in The Rookie.

But yes, 13 didn't end as well as it should have.




I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
