Wondering what is on Page 47? If the answer is yes – or, if you even know what I’m talking about – then chances are, you’ll be thrilled to find out that National Treasure 3 will finally get around to answering that question.
Collider spoke to Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard, the screenwriters of the third installment of Nic Cage’s cutrate Indiana Jones series, and they said that the movie will address the seemingly-throwaway in the second movie that Cage’s character specifically read page 47 of the President’s Book of Secrets:
We were asked to start there [when writing the third film], so that is where we’ll start. The plan is to start from what’s on page 47. The idea of the Book of Secrets is spectacular. It’s a great idea. The second movie sort of introduced it and used it as the center of the movie, so it is smart to make the third movie ‘okay, what treasure hunt will come out of the book of secrets’, which is kind of what the end of the movie started.
I hope the new treasure hunt includes Shia LeBeouf, aliens and a fridge that can survive atomic test blasts. That always works out well. (Via)
