OSCAR winning actor Nicolas Cage is once again teaming up with top producer Jerry Bruckheimer for upcoming film NATIONAL TREASURE - making it the fourth time the pair have worked together.

Cage has signed up to play an archaeologist-historian who leads a hunt for buried treasure, the whereabouts of which is indicated on a map drawn on the back of the Declaration of Independence.

The actor-producer partnership has already produced three box office hits - The Rock, Con Air and, most recently, GONE IN SIXTY SECONDS. JON TURTLETAUB will take on directing duties.
