Cage a Sorcerer

02.12.2007

Nicolas Cage is producing and will likely star in an upcoming live-action feature based on the classic tale THE SORCERER'S APPRENTICE. The same story was featured in the classic Disney short in FANTASIA that starred Mickey Mouse as the apprentice who makes trouble while the sorcerer is sleeping. Before you get too bent out of shape that Cage is defiling a Disney classic, know that Cage is working on the film for Disney. While the image to the right is amusing, I would expect Cage to be playing the cranky, old sorcerer in the film. Lawrence Konner and Mark Rosenthal (ERAGON) wrote the script, which took its inspiration not from FANTASIA but from the original Goethe poem. No inkling on when the film might get started but Cage first has to film NATIONAL TREASURE 2 for Disney. Cage can be seen this Friday in GHOST RIDER and later this year in the thriller NEXT.

Extra Tidbit: Dopey was the original star of FANTASIA's "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" until Walt Disney intervened and demanded Mickey star.
