Chris Bremner is writing the script for the third entry in the Nicolas Cage adventure series, which will presumably send Cage’s Benjamin Gates on yet another silly-yet-entertaining historically inaccurate adventure. National Treasure 3 has been a possibility for several years now, but the project has stalled out multiple times. But now it looks like the third film might be happening after all.
Buried at the bottom of a story about Bad Boys 4, THR reports that Chris Bremner is writing National Treasure 3 for Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer. This news is a bit of a surprise, because it seemed like National Treasure 3 was dead. In 2008, Bruckheimer confirmed a third film was happening. By 2010, Bruckheimer offered an update stating the first draft of the script was done.
But by 2012, star Nicolas Cage was quoted as saying, “I have not heard any news about a third one at this time.” And come 2016, Disney CEO Bob Iger seemed to throw cold water on the entire idea, stating: “We have done two, and yes they were really fine movies. I know Jerry Bruckheimer who produced them has had conversations with our studio a number of times about it, and there have been some developments along the way, but as of right now we have not green-lit as we say, a National Treasure 3.”
Bruckheimer doubled-down in 2017, proclaiming that a script was done, but Disney wasn’t happy with it. Come 2018, franchise director Jon Turteltaub told /Film: “I would make it tomorrow. Finding the right script is hard. It was brutal for the first two. It’s still gonna be brutal for the third. But I don’t think Disney wants to make it. And I think they have other things they wanna make more…” Turteltaub also added he wouldn’t be surprised if Disney ended up rebooting the series for Disney+.

We learn during Bad Boys for Life that Will Smith's character Mike Lowery was pulled directly from the police academy prior to the first film in the series for a special undercover mission. He was embeded with a Mexican drug cartel, where he fell in love with Isabel, the wife of the cartel's leader. Mike did his job and let the cartel go down, including Isabel, but it was apparently a difficult choice for him to make because he was truly in love with her at the time. What's more, we learn that Isabel went to prison pregnant, and the child she gave birth to, the one who has been on a personal vendetta against Mike and killed several other people, is actually Mike's own son who he never knew he had.
In the end, the son, Armando, helps Mike rescue Marcus and nearly dies himself, but is instead arrested and imprisoned for his crimes. That could be the end of the story, but it's not.
Shortly after the credits role on Bad Boys For Life, we're treated to one additional scene. We see Armando in lock-up as Mike comes to visit him. Mike asks how he's doing, and while Armando certainly doesn't love being locked up, he seems to have come to terms with his situation. He knows that he committed crimes and is prepared to pay his debt for having done so. However, Mike has apparently come for more than just small talk. He has something which he believes might aid Armando; some sort of deal which Mike says might help his son pay down his debt. We don't learn exactly what this offer is, but one assumes it's some sort of agreement which will allow Armando to get himself free sooner by helping out the Miami police. Clearly it's a tease for another Bad Boys movie.

The “Punky Brewster” revival has been ordered to series at Peacock, the upcoming streaming service from NBCUniversal.
Soleil Moon Frye will reprise her original role from the 1980s NBC sitcom, playing the main character — but now, she’s a single mother of three trying to get her life back on track when she meets a young girl who reminds her a lot of her younger self. Also returning from the original series is Cherie Johnson as Punky’s best friend, Cherie.
The first season will consist of 10 episodes.

According to the rumor, Godzilla vs. Kong's post-credits scene will depict some of the flick's human characters (presumably Monarch types) receiving a communication indicating that an extraterrestrial invasion of the Earth is imminent. While there is smidgen of foreshadowing to be found in King of the Monsters in the form of the revelation that King Ghidorah is, in fact, of alien origin, such a scene would still represent a surprising pivot from the franchise's narrative so far.
Could this set up the often Speculated Pacific Rim Crossover? It wouldn't be much of a stretch for Godzilla vs. Kong's E.T. invasion to actually turn out to be an incursion from another dimension, like the one from which Pacific Rim's kaiju originated — and in 2017, Uprising director Steven S. DeKnight even teased that a crossover could be possible.

Antagonized by the neighborhood kids, Jeff befriends another outsider, Drew Gilbert, who lives in fear of his cruel stepfather, Gus.

But when evil is awakened, the boys realize that sometimes you should just let dead dogs lie.

With Morbius‘ first trailer revealing that Michael Keaton will have a role as Vulture, Spider-Man fans are theorizing that the Sinister Six are about to form on the big-screen. Sony has been trying to launch the supervillain team for years now, with their initial plans to feature them in The Amazing Spider-Man franchise crashing once the decision was made to fold the wall-crawler into the MCU. But now those old plans are being dusted off, with a new Sinister Six movie on the way.
FandomWire is reporting that their sources have informed them Sony is building up to a Sinister Six film, with the evil group also appearing in a future Spider-Man movie to face Tom Holland’s Peter Parker. Of course, We Got This Covered already told you this back in the fall. Long before Morbius made the crossover with the MCU official, we reported that the Sinister Six were coming in both Spider-Man 4 and featuring in their own flick.
Keaton’s Adrian Toomes would be part of the team, as would Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal), Scorpion (Michael Mando) and Kraven (potentially to be introduced in Spider-Man 3). This line-up may change over time, of course, but if this one’s still going ahead, then Morbius might just have revealed who the fifth and sixth members of the team are: Jared Leto’s Living Vampire and Tom Hardy’s Venom.
Expect this year’s Morbius (coming July 31st) and Venom 2 (October 2nd) to sow the seeds for the Sinister Six. Next summer’s Spider-Man 3 may also do some of the heavy lifting, too. As such, it looks like the web-slinger’s life is about to get even more complicated.

The CW has given a straight to series order for its “Walker, Texas Ranger” reboot that will feature “Supernatural” star Jared Padalecki in the role Chuck Norris made famous.
"Walker” will see Padalecki star as Cordell Walker, a widowed father of two with his own moral code who returns to his home in Austin after two years of undercover work on a high-profile case, only to discover there’s more work to be done at home. He’ll attempt to reconnect with his children, navigate clashes with his conservative family, and find unexpected common ground with his new partner (one of the first women in Texas Rangers’ history), while growing increasingly suspicious about the circumstances surrounding his wife’s death.
Anna Fricke is writing and executive producing the series with Dan Lin, which is from CBS TV Studios. The original series with Norris ran from 1993-2001 on CBS. It was created by Albert S. Ruddy & Leslie Greif.
