Nicolas Cage as "The Sorcerer's Apprentice"?

by | February 13, 2007 | Comments

Of course you know the "Sorcerer’s Apprentice" segment from Walt Disney‘s "Fantasia." It’s the one where Mickey has to deal with a gigantic army of magical brooms. Well, that story was based on a poem by Johann Goethe … and that’s the story that might be made into a live-action movie starring Nicolas Cage.

I probably wouldn’t believe this news if it hadn’t come from The Hollywood Reporter, but here’s the scoop: Mr. Cage is indeed "attached" to a live-action "Apprentice," only it would be a New York-set modernization of the tale — a big-budget family-friendly adventure epic in which Cage would play a sorcerer who needs, you guessed it, an apprentice.

No director is connected to the project just yet, but we’re told the screenplay comes from the writing team of Lawrence Konner and Mark Rosenthal — also known as the guys who wrote "The Jewel of the Nile," "Superman 4: The Quest for Peace," "The Beverly Hillbillies," "Mighty Joe Young," and "Planet of the Apes."
