Don’t be surprised if you see Brian Koppelman and David Levien in the United States history section of Barnes & Noble. The pair who have previously plugged words into Matt Damon‘s word-gorge with Rounders and Ocean’s Thirteen, have stepped in to takeover scripting on National Treasure 3 for Jerry Bruckheimer.

Jon Turtletaub, who directed the previous films and Sorcerer’s Apprentice, is next slated to direct Unreasonable Doubt. It’s unclear if he’s gotten out from underneath the thumb of the National Treasure series or not, but I’m sure he wouldn’t mind a little Cage-cation.

Koppelman and Levien’s career is also taking off in other directions. They’re also moving ahead with plans to direct Levien’s novel City of the Sun. That story follows the father of a missing paperboy who teams with a private investigator while they search for his son fourteen months after the boy’s disappearance. With the newspaper industry on the ropes it would only make sense that paperboys have to travel farther and farther to make a living. Decent thing would have been for him to call home first though.

Nicolas Cage Could Be Too Busy for ‘Ghost Rider 2′ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/nicolas-cage-could-be-too-busy-for-ghost-rider-2/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/nicolas-cage-could-be-too-busy-for-ghost-rider-2/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 "Doggarnit.

Insiders tell us that Columbia is asking Marvel for an extension. (Asking, pleading, it's a fine line.) But time is running out. Cage has spoken about his desire to make a second Ghost Rider; the issue is whether his schedule will be free before the deadline.
