Did last summer's blockbuster sequel National Treasure: Book of Secrets leave you hungry for more of Nicolas Cage's globetrotting archeological antics? You might have to wait a while for another helping. Said National Treasure director Jon Turteltaub in a recent interview with Cinemablend.com: “I'm guessing that we're a few years away. By the time we come up with a decent idea and develop it into a complicated and intelligent puzzle it's going to be at least 2009. Then to prep it and cast it... it should be three years away.” Those remarkably complex, multi-layered plots don't write themselves, you know. In the interim, those looking for some alternative history can tide themselves over on Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Angels & Demons or any of Oliver Stone's upcoming flicks.

Though it might sound like some kind of wacky Ben Stiller comedy, Holy Rollers, about a group of Hasidic Jewish youths peddling Ecstasy in mid-'90's Brooklyn, is actually based on a true story.
"I like to call it the Jewish Mean Streets," Rollers star Justin Bartha told Reelz.com last week, referencing Martin Scorsese's gritty 1973 tale. "It's like Jew Streets. Myself and Jesse Eisenberg are gonna play young Hasidic Jews in Brooklyn. If you look at Mean Streets, he'd be the Harvey Keitel character and I would be De Niro."
Holy Rollers will commence shooting next spring with an eye toward a 2009 release. Bartha can next be seen alongside Nicolas Cage, Jon Voight and Diane Kruger in National Treasure: Book of Secrets, which opens tomorrow. Posted 12.20.07 by reelz

The latest installment, opening nationwide on December 21st, centers on John Wilkes Booth's diary, the Statue of Liberty and a quest to find the fabled lost City of Gold.
