It is unclear whether the rest of the cast will reprise their roles along with Nicholas Cage for the sequel.
In 2018, reports stated that screenwriter Jon Turteltaub had written a script for National Treasure 3. The official confirmation regarding the director for the project is yet to be finalised by the producers.
