Nicholas Cage to star in Live Action “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”… that’s not a typo.

I’m totally with Cartoonbrew on this one. When I first heard that Disney had announced that they’re producing “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” as
a live-action feature starring Nicholas Cage as the Sorcerer, I thought I had perhaps slept through to April 1st. But no, The Hollywood Reporter has the details.

[The Screenplay] takes its inspiration from Johann Wolfgang Goethe’s original poem, which in turn was the inspiration for the classic Mickey Mouse animated sequence from Disney’s 1940 classic "Fantasia."

"Sorcerer" is being envisioned as a tentpole fantasy adventure set in contemporary New York, where a powerful sorcerer is in need of an apprentice. Cage would play the sorcerer.

Apparently this will be positioned as one of the large budget live action flicks like Pirates Of The Caribbean and National Treasure. Okay… they’ve talked me down off the ledge. Let’s wait and see, shall we.

One Response to Nicholas Cage to star in Live Action “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”… that’s not a typo.

    Why is Cage always attached to every movie? Thank goodness he didn’t do Superman. Ghostrider looks fairly interesting.

    We shall see. It can’t be any worse than that live-action trailer for Under Dog.
