The series is based on the National Treasure film series starring Nicolas Cage as Benjamin Gates, the crafty treasure hunter who unearthed some of the world’s greatest valuables. In the first film, Gates discovered a map on the back of the Declaration of Independence, which led him to one of the world’s greatest treasures underneath Trinity Church in New York City. In the second film, Gates used the Book of Secrets to prove the innocence of his great-great-grandfather and find the city of gold inside Mount Rushmore. As of now, Cage is not scheduled to appear in the series.

Cormac Wibberley and Marianne Wibberley, who wrote both films, return as writers on the series. The Wibberleys will also serve as executive producers alongside the two producers of both films, Jerry Bruckheimer and Jon Turteltaub. Jonathan Littman, KristieAnne Reed, Rick Muirragui, and Mira Nair will also serve as executive producers, with Nair directing the series as well.

This excellent 2004 movie changed the game for the action genre forever
A man burns a journal in The Bourne Supremacy.

Today, Matt Damon is largely known as a movie star. The Oscar winner has had a long and quite prolific career, starring in leading and supporting roles alike and receiving acclaim in multiple genres. From psychological thrillers like The Talented Mr. Ripley to sci-fi vehicles like The Martian, from pitch-black comedies like The Informer! to cheesy family flicks like We Bought a Zoo, Damon has truly done it all.

It was 2002's The Bourne Identity that launched Damon as a potential action star, but the sequel ensured his legacy. More importantly, The Bourne Supremacy changed the game for the action genre as a whole, acting as a precursor to the gritty, thrilling, raw action films that would dominate much of the late 2000s and early 2010s and paving the way for the over-the-top extravaganzas we have today.

There, Americans have made like their ancestors and flocked in great numbers to a new blockbuster about flirtatiously mismatched storm chasers racing across a wind-ravaged heartland. Twisters, a belated, standalone sequel to the Jan de Bont disaster flick of yore, is the latest evidence that the ’90s are back in a big way, especially on movie screens.
