National Treasure 3 set in New Orleans?

Nicolas Cage has dropped a few hints as to what we can expect from the inevitable next installment in the National Treasure franchise.

“There’s been talk about doing it in the South, maybe in New Orleans,” Cage told MTV .

Back in February, website Jim Hill Media said a plot description was making the rounds at Disney that sent the Gates family in search of Atlantis. If true, it sounds like they'll be using New Orleans as a launching point to search the seas for the sunken city.

Regardless, Cage seems to be enthusiastic about continuing the series. "It’s the kind of character you can play forever, it’s not age dependent,” he said. “It’s a good franchise."
