When Collider got the opportunity to speak with Turteltaub about his latest film, the comedy Last Vegas (due out in theaters on November 1st), I took the chance to ask him for an update on the status of National Treasure 3, and he?s definitely still hopeful that it will happen within the next couple of years.

There was talk about National Treasure 3 hitting theaters for Christmas 2011, and now it?s just about Christmas 2013 and the film hasn?t been shot yet. Why has that been so difficult to get going, when it should be such a no-brainer?

JON TURTELTAUB: If you can write the script, we?ll take it! It?s so damn hard to write a great historical mystery based on fact. It?s not for lack of trying. We want to do the movie. Disney wants to do the movie. We?re just having the damnedest time, writing it.

Do you think it?s something that will still happen?

TURTELTAUB: I do. I?ll bet that within two years, we?ll be shooting that movie.

Are you close to being ready?

TURTELTAUB: We?re closer. I?d say we?re about half-way there. It?s not only writing a great historical mystery, but we?ve gotta write something that has nothing to do with anything we?ve done before. The goal is to always have an original sequel, as silly as that sounds. We really want to make sure that the third one doesn?t just feel like a repeat of the first one, or one too many.

I bet it is hard to write a history based mystery, and make it original too.

This is one of his best projects yes. But I happened to like The Rock, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, The Family Man, and Guarding Tess, to name a few...

National Treasure is pretty much my favourite Nic Cage movie. I hope Riley and Abgail return.

?Those are the hardest movies to make because they?re all based on clues. It?s so difficult to work them out. But, we got a first act in [on Friday], and Jon [Turteltaub] was very excited about it and I?m very excited about it. Hopefully, the first act will lead into the second act and the third act, and we?ll get this thing going.?
