More From the National Treasure 2 Set


The Rapid City Journal has posted another update from the Mount Rushmore set of National Treasure: Book of Secrets. Here’s a clip:

Michael Singer, unit publicist for “National Treasure: Book of Secrets,” said the schedule calls for another week of shooting.

One reason the schedule was extended, Singer said, is that the crew and cast have been hampered by cold, rainy weather. “Our scenes do not call for rain or snow,” he said.

Another reason “National Treasure” is still here, Singer added, is that the director and producers have been wowed by their Black Hills backdrop. In fact, scenes in the film that would have been set in another location were changed so they could be shot here.

“Certain scenes that already existed (in the screenplay) were reconfigured to take advantage of the extraordinary beauty of the Black Hills,” Singer said.
