'National Treasure' TV series could hit Disney+ pretty soon.
Jerry Bruckheimer is eager to embark on a fresh ride on the National Treasure.
The prolific filmmaker has revealed he is preparing a TV series with a completely new cast assigned for the streaming platform Disney+ based on the action-adventure movie franchise.

During an interview promoting his upcoming series 'Hightown,' Bruckheimer told Collider,
We're certainly working on one [National Treasure] for streaming, and we're working on one for the big screen. Hopefully, they'll both come together, and we'll bring you another National Treasure, but they're both very active.
The producer continued, "The one for Disney+ is a much younger cast. It's the same concept but a young cast. The one for theatrical would be the same cast."
Bruckheimer created both the initial feature from 2004 and its follow-up from 2007, 'National Treasure: Book of Secrets.' The first movie grossed over $347 million globally, with about $460 million being earned in the sequel.
Although Disney+ reps refused to speak on the National Treasure TV show, Bruckheimer told Collider the pilot script and description of the upcoming episodes had been produced already.
Disney created both National Treasure movies, and retains the ownership of the franchise. Meanwhile, Disney+ has been pushing heavily into the company's vast IP pool of new acquisitions for its subscription network.

In addition to numerous feature film offshoots including Star Wars and Marvel, Disney+ is now reviving classic titles like 'The Mighty Ducks,' 'Turner & Hooch,' 'Escape to Witch Mountain,' 'The Sandlot' and 'Lizzie McGuire.' An improved twist on High School Musical allowed the streamer to debut and secured season two renewal pretty early.
