Alfred Molina has signed on to play the evil magician Horvath in the Disney’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice starring Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel. Jon Turteltaub is directing the film with Jerry Bruckheimer is producing.
The story centers on an average college student (Baruchel) who is reluctantly recruited to work for a sorcerer named Balthazar Blake (Cage). The man gives him a crash course in the art and science of magic to prepare him for a battle against the forces of darkness in modern Manhattan.
Teresa Palmer is also cast, set to play Baruchel’s love interest.
The movie begins shooting this month in New York.
Molina recently wrapped his role as Sheik Amar in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, which Disney will release May 28, 2010.
My only question is will there be a scene were Baruchel brings a broom to life only to have it turn on him?
