Highlighting the actor’s importance to the franchise, one fan said: “National Treasure w/out Nic Cage is like Top Gun: Maverick w/out Tom Cruise, T2 w/out The Terminator, The New Testament w/out Jesus.”
The National Treasure franchise is returning – but without one key name.
“National Treasure without Nicolas Cage feels like it’s not National Treasure,” one fan wrote, with another adding: “No Nic Cage? Boooooooo.”
Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, National Treasure was released in 2004, with a sequel, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, following in 2007.
