There will be no third part
The series is set in the universe created by the Nicolas Cage films. Since the release of ‘The Quest 2: The Secret Diary’ in 2007, there have been many rumors about the possibility of a third installment coming to our screens. However, the one who was the protagonist of the previous two parts does not believe that this will happen, as he explained to The Hollywood Reporter: “A lot of times, the things we read about are just conjecture without any basis or foundation. That’s what I think is going on with ‘National Tresaure 3.’ It’s been 14 years. There’s nothing else there”.
On the other hand, we will soon see him in ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’. In it, he will face references to his previous characters. He will be an actor who lacks money and goes to the party of a millionaire who is a big fan of his.
