Last week, ComingSoon.net spoke to The Sorcerer’s Apprentice director Jon Turteltaub to get a progress report on National Treasure 3, which you can read here, and now here’s a report from an interview ComingSoon.net did with the writers on the planned three-quel:
After wrapping work on Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, screenwriters Doug Miro and Carlos Bernard are neck-deep in figuring out the requisite Byzantine plot twists of National Treasure 3, and while they’re keeping the details as clandestine as the Book of Secrets, Miro did offer a glimpse of the process behind their approach during a chat with ComingSoon.net.
CS: Where are you in the work and what can you say at this point about your script for “National Treasure 3”?
CS: Is it picking up dangling threads from the most recent film or is it starting fresh on its own?
You can read more with the duo sometime next week before Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time opens on May 28; they also talk about Jerry Bruckheimer’s other movie The Sorcerer’s Apprentice which opens on July 16.
