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.

The Wibberleys will also serve as executive producers alongside the two producers of both films, Jerry Bruckheimer and Jon Turteltaub.
